Jennings Motor Group launches new Kia dealership in Sunderland

Jennings Motor Group has further expanded its business in the North East region, with the opening of a new Kia dealership in Sunderland.

The motor dealer group marked the official opening with a VIP event at the new dealership, which is located adjacent to Sunderland Football Club’s Stadium of Light on Stadium Way in Sunderland.


Part of an ongoing programme of development and customer care, the new dealership further complements the group’s existing Kia franchises in Washington and Stockton.  Jennings Kia Washington launched in 2011, and the group’s Kia Stockton dealership has been in operation since 2013.

Dr Nas Khan OBE, managing director Jennings Motor Group, said; “We’re delighted to be further strengthening our partnership with Kia Motors, and to be bringing the popular Kia brand to the people of Wearside.”

Official opening proceedings got underway with a ribbon cutting ceremony carried out by Nas Khan and Simon Hetherington, Commercial Director at Kia Motors (UK) Ltd.

Simon said; “This new dealership in Wearside shows the continued investment that Jennings have made in the Kia brand and in providing jobs in the area, we wish them continued success in Wearside.”

VIP guests enjoyed a relaxed evening of entertainment and refreshments, followed by a grand finale firework display.

The new dealership - a former car showroom - has undergone a complete refurbishment and work has been carried out to an extremely high standard and specification, in order to meet the corporate design and distinctive Kia style.

Designed and project managed by local firm, Focus Architecture + Surveying, the new 200sqm Kia showroom accommodates a five-vehicle display, in addition to being able to cater for aftersales with a service and MOT workshop, and a parts department on site.  The exterior includes a large forecourt, as well as an independent valet building at the rear of the site.
