“EchoPark Las Vegas is an important part of our growing omnichannel solution for consumers, and offers guests who visit in-store or shop online at EchoPark.com an entirely new way to buy cars,” said David Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Sonic Automotive and EchoPark Automotive. “Our rapidly growing distribution network brings an exciting, seamless guest experience to another key market, while offering a new population of car buyers savings of up to $3,000 versus the competition.”
EchoPark guests are able to shop in person or take delivery of their purchase at our new Las Vegas location after conveniently shopping online at EchoPark.com and choosing from over 10,000 high quality, one- to four-year-old pre-owned vehicles under original factory warranty, with clean CarFax reports. Our easy, transparent online purchase experience includes below-market, no-haggle pricing (including taxes and fees), a firm trade-in vehicle offer, competitive financing solutions and the ability to choose from a selection of quality vehicle protection plans. After scheduling a pickup appointment at an EchoPark delivery center or retail sales center, guests will be greeted by an EchoPark Experience Guide to help answer any questions and finalize all vehicle purchase details before quickly getting them on their way home with their new purchase. With over 15,000 five-star reviews to date, the EchoPark experience is clearly resonating with guests.
“The opening of EchoPark Las Vegas is a key component of the Company’s ongoing growth strategy, as we continue to execute our accelerated expansion plan to meet the strong demand for pre-owned vehicles across the nation,” said Jeff Dyke, President of Sonic and EchoPark Automotive.
Following its 2014 launch, EchoPark Automotive has rapidly become one of the pre-owned automotive retail industry’s most prominent success stories. The Company continues to expand its EchoPark footprint into new markets and anticipates 90 percent population coverage by 2025, enabling its interim goal of retailing 575,000 vehicles and generating $14 billion in annual EchoPark revenues by 2025, while driving toward a two million vehicle annual sales opportunity at maturity.
