PGA Cars, Inc., the official and exclusive importer and distributor of Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, and Bentley in the Philippines on May 18 resumes physical sales and service operations of the four premium automotive brands as COVID-19 quarantine restrictions in some parts of the Philippines have been eased.
PGA Cars, Inc. marks the resumption of Porsche’s, Audi’s, Lamborghini’s, and Bentley’s physical operations with strict compliance to the most stringent sanitation protocols as it places in highest priority the health and safety of its clients, guests, and workforce. The restart of physical operations is complemented by the brands’ established virtual operations, some aspects of which have been recently bolstered by digital tools in response to new market conditions.
Besides continuing to observe hygienic measures practiced in Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley dealerships long before the quarantine—such as regular disinfection of facilities and vehicles, and providing hand sanitizers to all personnel—some of the steps to be taken during the restart are that servicing of vehicles will be done by appointment only and that all vehicles accepted will be immediately disinfected upon arrival, as well as prior to releasing.
Also, all guests and employees entering the brands’ premises must first wear a mask, undergo a thermal check, remove their outer clothing, submit a health form, wash their hands and go through a foot bath. Social distancing will be practiced as well, with the guidelines announced in signage around the facilities.
Clients who wish to visit the brands’ showrooms will have to book an appointment.
The reopening of PGA Cars’ physical facilities for Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, and Bentley follows the four brands’ resumption of manufacturing operations in their home markets.
Porsche phased in production at its main factories in Zuffenhausen and Leipzig, Germany, starting on May 4, with volumes set to ramp up incrementally in the following weeks. At Audi, around 1,500 employees have reported back to work on April 29 as the company resumed auto manufacturing at its main plant in Ingolstadt, Germany. On May 4, Lamborghini resumed producing super sports cars and SUVs at its factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, and immediately followed this with an online introduction of a new model—the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive—three days later. For its part, Bentley started a phased return to producing ultra-luxurious cars at its Crewe, England, headquarters on May 11, with full manufacturing operations scheduled to begin on May 18.
Observed in all these resumptions of operations are new sanitation and health safety protocols that adhere—if not surpass—those mandated by national governments.
Upon the restart of PGA Cars’ brands’ physical operations, clients can check out the latest models from Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, and Bentley. These models are properly documented and covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, as well as supported by world-class aftersales services with work performed by factory-trained and -certified technicians who have access to the latest equipment and necessary software updates.
