Vertu has opened two new Hyundai franchise dealerships in the North East in the past week. One franchise takes over Vertu’s former Infiniti showroom in Silverlink, Newcastle (pictured below) and the second will operate as a satellite business in Morpeth, alongside the group’s Ford dealership.

Vertu CEO, Robert Forrester, said: “The two new additions represent a £300,000 investment and makes us the largest Hyundai retailer.”

Vertu now has 10 Hyundai franchises and overtakes Motorline which has nine.
