The Toyota Carolla Cross was the most popular selling vehicle in County Cavan in the first four months of this year.

Erne Motor Works, Toyota in pole position as Cavan’s Best-Selling Car Brand 2023

Toyota’s Hybrid Electric Strategy continues to perform strongly as Toyota remains Ireland’s best-selling car brand for the third year in a row. Cavan’s leading Toyota dealer, Erne Motor Works, currently has five of its hybrid electric models named in the top 10 best selling cars in the Breffni county, according to recently published figures from the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI).

Dara Fitzpatrick, dealer principal at Erne Motor Works, contends Toyota provides the widest range of hybrid electric models on the market, ensuring all customers can choose a car to suit their lifestyle and budget.

“It is encouraging to see five of our hybrid electric models in the top 10 best-selling cars in Cavan, including the Corolla, Yaris, Yaris Cross, C-HR and Rav-4. We are looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings, with exciting new models like the 1.8L Corolla Cross arriving this summer and good supplies of popular models for the coming months.”

Quality used cars

Due to strong new car sales over the last few months, and a high volume of trade-in vehicles, Erne Motor Works is now stocking an extensive selection of quality used passenger cars and commercials across various makes and models.

Dara explained that all their used cars are fully serviced, come fully valeted and with an NCT/DOE. He emphasised the importance of customer satisfaction and retention and knowing customers are driving away confident and happy with their purchase.

He highlighted how, under Toyota’s Approved Used Car Programme, every used Toyota car comes with:

12-month warranty;

12-month roadside assistance, including breakdown and recovery service;

Hybrid Life Assurance, providing a further one year of Hybrid Battery Extended Care, which can be renewed up to 10 years;

Rigorous 100-point technical check is carried out prior to sale by our Toyota trained specialists;

Flexible, tailored and competitive Finance Options;

Toyota Relax Service Activated Warranty may be available which extends the warranty on your Toyota vehicle once you continue to service your Toyota with Erne Motor Works/ a Toyota Dealer (T&C’s apply); and

Confidence that your Toyota will retain its resale value for longer.

In particular, Dara commended Toyota’s new Service Activated Warranty – Toyota Relax. Where you service your Toyota with a Toyota dealer, customers will be rewarded with a 12-month Toyota Relax Warranty. Then, when your next service is due, if you return to a Toyota dealer, another 12-month Toyota Relax warranty will be activated for your vehicle. You can avail of this warranty up until the vehicle’s 10th birthday or 185,000kms.
