With about 2,000 new vehicles in inventory, more than 100 service bays and more than 100 sales people, Longo Toyota in El Monte, California is the largest car dealership on the planet. How large you ask?
They built a massive 5 story parking garage to park their new car inventory. Once inside, the dealership looks more like a small airport rather than a car dealership. StarBucks and Subway both have locations on site as well as two Enterprise Rent-A-Car locations and an on-site business centre.
I know what you’re asking yourself. How many vehicles do they sell a year? How about more than Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, Subaru, Kia or BMW sell across Canada in one year. The dealership sells more than 100 new cars everyday!! In fact from just one location they sell close to 50,000 vehicles a year.
The final question you may be asking yourself is why is a Canadian car blog posting something about a dealership in the United States? I don’t know, perhaps because I think it’s interesting.
