Japanese car company Daihatsu has appointed its 60th new UK dealership, bringing its total UK network to 92.

Daihatsu, which specialises in high-technology compact cars with strong environmental characteristics, is also busy processing applications from prospective dealers across the UK and looks set to have a 100-strong network by the year-end.

Operations Director, Paul Hegarty, said: "As car buyers continue to shift away from large cars towards smaller, more fuel efficient ones, we are seeing a continuing rise in the number of dealerships interested in our specialist range of compact cars."

He added: "What is more, with the exciting new Copen roadster due to go on sale in November and the highly acclaimed new Charade proving a big success, customer and dealer interest in Daihatsu is now greater than ever."

The 60th new dealership to be appointed since February 2000, when West Midlands-based Daihatsu Vehicle Distributors Limited took over the UK operation, is Clemo Daihatsu at Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire.

Other recent appointments include; CVC Cardiff; Foxfield at Wigan; Thurlow Nunn Standen at Downham Market; K.T. Green at Pool in Wharfdale; Dennis Common at Longframlington; Express Garage at Herne Bay; Parkside in Bolton; Cross Keys at Morley; Prestons Garages at Writtle in Essex; Meredith & Kirkham at Colwyn Bay; Seward at New Milton; Ken Jervis in Stoke on Trent; WJH Motors at Bedford and Penfold Motors in London (SE12).
