JEC Derbyshire visits Inchcape Derby New Facility Open Day

We were invited to attend the open day for the new JLR showroom in Derby

JEC Derbyshire Region were invited to attend the open day to launch Inchcape’s new JLR facility in Derby on 25th January. A small number of members arrived at about 1pm. The new premises has a large showroom for new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles as well as a lot of used examples outside. The showroom is split into Jaguar in one half and Land Rover in the other, with a good selection of both marques on display. Behind the showroom is the drive in area for the service department with a state of the art workshop behind. I am looking forward to the experience when my Sportbrake goes in for its service next month.

Staff were very welcoming to visitors with refreshments provided, very nice fresh made pizza and drinks. There was also face painting for the children and make up consultations for the ladies, men as well if they wished. All the cars were open and there was no pressure from sales staff so it made for a relaxed atmosphere to explore the different types of cars on offer. It certainly seems there is a car for everyone across the JLR range from the high performance Project 8 to an I Pace. Those who attended enjoyed their visit, thanks to Marcus and the staff. Hopefully we will return soon for an event tailored specifically for our group when the weather improves.

Thanks to Phil Cheetham for organising the visit, taking the photographs and writing the report.
