BYD, the Chinese automaker, has recently reopened two showrooms and a service center in Hong Kong that were subject to vandalism. According to a notice posted on BYD’s website by their exclusive agent in Hong Kong, JC Motor Ltd, the restoration work on another showroom located in the Yuen Long district is expected to be completed by the end of this week. JC Motor Ltd has reported these incidents to the police and expressed their willingness to cooperate with the investigation, awaiting the conclusions drawn by law enforcement.
JC Motor Ltd stated in the notice that their showrooms in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island and Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, along with their service center in Tin Shui Wai in the New Territories, have already resumed their normal operations. However, when contacted by Reuters, JC Motor Ltd did not immediately provide any comment regarding the cause and impact of the vandalism.
According to the information received from the police, two BYD showrooms and a service center in Hong Kong were targeted with red paint, while one of their showrooms in Yuen Long suffered damage when a car crashed into the roller shutter during the early hours of Monday. The incident is still being investigated by the authorities.
