OpenRoad Toyota – Richmond in British Columbia has plans for a brand new, state-of-the-art showroom and service facility in what will become the largest Toyota dealership in Canada. Construction is due to begin this month.
“We’re proud of the service we have provided for almost 40 years – and our new facility will ensure we’re ready to continue to provide the best service experience to current and future customers in the Vancouver area.”
- Christian Chia, Dealer Principal at OpenRoad Toyota.
OpenRoad Toyota – Richmond traces its history in the area back to 1978, with a modest showroom on Granville Avenue. In 1985, the dealership moved to its present location in the Richmond Auto Mall.
The new facility, to be built right across the street, will be five times larger with a surface of 205,000 square feet. It will incorporate many environmental systems as well as more space to showcase and service the full range of Toyota models.
Customers will find several amenities including two lounge areas, a children’s play area, plus a full-service café with TVs, a fireplace and Wi-Fi access. The new vehicle showroom space will encompass more than 15,000 square feet, making it the largest Toyota showroom in British Columbia, with space to display 36 vehicles on two levels, plus 10 indoor new vehicle delivery bays.
Toyota dealers have a reputation for excellent customer service, and OpenRoad Toyota – Richmond will continue to demonstrate why this is so, with a 12-bay drive-through reception service, 30 full mechanical service bays, and four express service bays for routine work such as oil changes. There will also be two automatic carwashes and six detail bays.
Outside, the new site’s architectural design will incorporate many leading-edge environmental features such as a green roof and water collection system on the car wash, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, LED lighting, and more.
