In 2015, Leslies Motors acquired ownership of Wight Motors in Sandown from the Butler family. Wight Motors has a very rich history of its own, founded 90 years ago, the business has also gone from strength to strength. In May 1975, Wight Motors opened a new premises on College Close in Sandown and the official opening was attended by Miss United Kingdom and former Miss World, Helen Morgan, who greeted visitors. The showroom at the Sandown site was further extended in 1979 and Roy and Barbara Butler took over in the early 1990s. In 2006, Wight Motors left Ryde altogether and moved into a brand new showroom in Sandown, which is where it still is to this day, with our 2 successful franchises, Toyota and Hyundai.
Wight Motors, much like Northwood Garage, is a multi-franchise site. We have a large Sales and Service department, with many service bays for the technicians to complete their day to day work. There is a new showroom being built at Blackwater which will soon be home to one of the Wight Motors franchises when it is finished, meaning eventually the team will be seperated. But this means there will be a larger space for both Toyota and Hyundai to reside.
