Coming up with ways to consolidate resources in the interest of ease and convenience is always good for customers. Those who find themselves walking into AC Motors Centrale are definitely in for a treat as far as those are concerned. To bring brands closer to consumers, AC Motors Centrale highlights not only each brand’s strengths and product rosters, but will also be a showcase for AC Motors’ new ventures.

There are also different payment schemes that customers can take advantage of only at AC Motors Centrale. From normal cash and installment sales, vehicle trade-ins, as well as a used car program, are some of the efforts that AC Motors has in store for those who shop at Centrale. How’s that for convenience?

If only the concept of AC Motors Centrale would catch on, perhaps we will see more dealerships of this kind put up in the future. For now, AC Motors Centrale can be proud of being the “first of its kind” dealership. Now, the question is where the next branch will pop up next.
