Update: this article has been updated the clarify that this is the largest exclusive Cadillac dealership opened under the new dealership design architecture.
The first wholly exclusive Cadillac dealership under the new dealership design architecture in North America has just opened in the Canadian city of Calgary, Alberta.
You might have thought the first standalone Cadillac dealer in North America under the new design layout would have been opened in Michigan, New York, Texas, California or another populous American state, and we wouldn’t have blamed you. But with the opening of Carter Cadillac’s new location, the first (and the largest) standalone Cadillac dealer is actually located north of the border.
“I’ve been lucky to be part of the Cadillac transformation over the past few years, which sparked our desire to invest the time and resources in building the first Cadillac-exclusive dealership in Western Canada,” Carter Cadillac managing partner Jay McKeen said in a statement. “We’ve noticed an increased interest in luxury vehicles in the west and Calgary is the highest volume market for Cadillac in Western Canada, making it the perfect location for this new dealership.”
The dealership is a three-storey, dual-showroom, 50,000 sq. ft. facility with a floorspace dedicated to Cadillac’s V-Series line of high-performance vehicles and other notable vintage cars from Cadillac’s history. It also features state of the art tech such as a virtual reality showroom and solar-powered electric vehicle fast-charging station.
Carter Cadillac has a full-service concierge desk with vehicle pick up and return as well, building on the luxury experience it hopes to deliver to customers.
“Cadillac’s mission is to provide customers with a luxury experience that is second to none, and this applies to our facilities and services as much as it does our vehicles” said Cadillac brand boss Steve Carlisle. “Carter Cadillac’s new dealership perfectly showcases that philosophy, and we couldn’t be more excited about opening it in one of our most burgeoning markets.”
Carter Cadillac is open for business in Calgary now. We’re sure the employees wouldn’t mind if you just wanted to stop by to check out the vintage cars and V-Series cars, either.
