Brendan Foot Supersite welcomes two new vehicle brands to the family. Haval and Great Wall are now part of the Brendan Foot Supersite family and will provide Kiwis with a range of exciting vehicles offering superior value for money.
A choice of select models will be made available to Wellington and Wairarapa. The Haval range includes H2, H6 & H9 SUVs, while Great Wall brings in a range of trusty Steed utes.
With this expansion, Brendan Foot Supersite has opened a new showroom for both brands at 2 Udy Street, Petone.
Within a year the showroom was moved to be alongside the other brands at Brendan Foot Supersite’s Railway Avenue, Lower Hutt location. Servicing for Haval and Great Wall branded cars and utes can be carried out at the Lower Hutt service too.
To lead this expansion, Dave Foot, Dealer Principal at Brendan Foot Supersite, has appointed Nigel Searle as Sales Manager. Nigel brings a wealth of Haval and Great Wall knowledge with him from South Africa where he spent two years selling these brands.
“We were lucky enough to see the Haval and Great Wall innovation and assembly facilities in Baoding, China recently. These brands in my opinion will be serious contenders in the next few years. Their world class design, innovation and quality is extraordinary.
We are very proud to be part of this journey and can only endorse their very exciting future. NZ motorists, watch this space!”
Dave Foot, Dealer Principal Brendan Foot Supersite
“In a world with many brands and variations of small to large SUVs on offer in New Zealand, Haval injects a breath of fresh air into this market, and has done so since its introduction to the New Zealand in 2017.
The current Haval and Great Wall vehicles have already gained great traction in the market through some A-List features and accolades, but most importantly, through quality and comfort. Packed with features at a great value proposition price point, it’s no surprise that many New Zealanders have opted for Haval as their SUV of choice.
Similarly Great Wall offers great value utes suitable for families, tradies, farm and other businesses.”
Nigel Searle, Sales Manager Haval and Great Wall
