Lookers’ £6m Teesside Car Hub used car retailer has been given the green light from Middlesborough Council. It is set to open later in 2023 and will create additional jobs, taking its staff numbers in the area to around 200.

The 25,000 sq/m site, located alongside its new BYD franchise, will also accommodate a standalone Ford retailer and an EV experience centre. The site will boast six 150kW EV rapid chargers.

In other EV retail news, the NFDA has announced a snap survey into whether the revised 2035 EV ban has led to any immediate changes in demand for electric vehicles.
