LONDON — Opel and Vauxhall will cut a series of dealerships as new owners PSA Group continues to revoke costs during a automaker it acquired final year in a face of shifting sales, particularly in Britain, a vital market.

PSA bought Opel and Vauxhall final year when it acquired General Motors’ unprofitable European arm and launched a vital restructuring.

Vauxhall’s new trainer Stephen Norman is tasked with branch around descending sales in what has traditionally been Opel-Vauxhall’s biggest market, where direct fell 22 percent in 2017, compared with an altogether marketplace decrease of 5.7 percent.

“The mandate of a attention going brazen and a mandate of a brands Opel and Vauxhall … would not need as many sell outlets as a brands now have,” Norman told reporters.

European consumers are increasingly going online rather than creation mixed visits to showrooms.

The CEO of a dealership group, vocalization on condition of anonymity, told Reuters final month that Vauxhall wants to cut the showrooms by roughly a third to around 200 outlets to safeguard the sales per opening are “in a good place.”
