The world’s largest car dealership

650997-1471482-thumbnail.jpgWith 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.

Visit Longo Toyota for a virtual tour and click on the picture above to get a better perspective.

Hey u guys got it all wrong . I am currently residing in the middleast . The Toyota dealership in Oman is the largest in the world ... Your stats are minuscule in comparision to the dealer in oman .

In terms of inventory we are talking about 12000 units in stock backed by a 24hr service center equipped with 300 bays and a five floor corporate center which has the largest showroom in the world .... Check it out on www.toyotaoman.com .....


Well thats Oman , the dealer in Saudi Arabia has an inventory of 14000 units approx....

Cheers !!!

I don't find any official or third party referential verification about Longo Toyota being the world's largest dealership. I don't deny the fact it may be so as it has been claimed. Most important thing is the quality of services a car dealer offers. Minimum investment and maximum outcome is what makes a good deal.
this isnt the largest
