CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 24, 2017) – Hendrick Automotive Group has officially opened the renamed Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston, now located at 1464 Savannah Hwy., adjacent to Rick Hendrick Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM.


Having first entered the market in 1980, Hendrick Automotive Group currently operates 18 franchises and employs more than 850 people in Charleston and North Charleston. Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston is the closest dealership to Volvo’s more than $1 billion manufacturing operation in Berkeley County slated to open in 2018.


“Charleston is very important to our company,” said Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group. “With the incredible Volvo manufacturing plant coming to the area, our new dealership facility will be a tremendous showplace for the brand and afford our long-standing customers the world-class sales and service they truly deserve. Hendrick Automotive Group remains committed to investing in the people and community of Charleston and North Charleston.”


Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston features 100 new and 80 pre-owned vehicles on site with access to more than 43,000 new and pre-owned vehicles at HendrickCars.com. The new 29,300-square-foot facility sits on 6.8 acres and offers 25 service bays. The location provides numerous customer amenities including free Wi-Fi, refreshments, a coffee bar, service loaner vehicles and complimentary shuttle service to area businesses and attractions.


“Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston’s growth is a result of our focus on teammates and customers,” said John Desmond, Hendrick Automotive Group market area vice president. “Much like how Volvo recently doubled its commitment to the new Berkeley County manufacturing operation, our new facility doubles its footprint with an expanded showroom, service area and parking access off Savannah Highway.”


“The Charleston area is a terrific place for our teammates to live and work,” said Dan Zarrillo, Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston general manager. “Our new location will not only provide a premium dealership experience, it will highlight Volvo’s impressive new products, including the popular Volvo S60 sedan, which will soon be manufactured right up the road. We also offer the award-winning XC90, which will be built at the Berkeley County facility starting in 2021.”


Open Monday through Saturday for sales, service and parts, Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston employs more than 40 people. For information on employment opportunities, please visit HendrickCareers.com. The dealership currently is hiring sales professionals, service technicians and other positions.
