Powell Motor Group (PMG) is a long established family business, proudly Tasmanian owned, specializing in new and used vehicles for over 40 years.
David Powell senior established the business in 1970 when in his early twenties following a successful start which included being awarded Tasmanian young businessman of the year and Toyota salesmen of the year- selling the most Toyotas Australia wide. With this positive start he made the move to establish his own business.
David Powell was a keen motor racing enthusiast, sharing an interest in all facets of the race world- motorbike, sidecar and car racing- following in his father’s footsteps who was an Australian TT champion. David would maintain his own vehicles as he had precise mechanical skills and an eye for detail. He successfully competed as a driver up to Formula 5000 level.
His sporting activities extended to aviation where as a pilot he won the Country Club Sky Race Tasmanian and the Bicentenary Air race from Brisbane to Adelaide. He was also a competitive sport shooter and fisherman.
Since that start based in the motor racing world, over the years the business has shown a commitment to the changing trends in the motor industry and has earned a reputation as an honest, reliable and successful dealership where the customer is our first priority.
The memorable Dave Powell Senior has sadly passed away, however the well-respected Tasmanian business remains a great success due to the passion and commitment of the Powell family. Today the business is still proudly family owned and operated. Brothers David Powell junior and James now successfully follow in their father’s footsteps and have developed the business to meet modern day needs, recently completing a major premises upgrade including a modern service centre with mechanics specializing in all car models, diesel engines, tyres and road worthy certification.
And now PMG has added the new and exciting range of LDV vans, buses and people movers to the range of vehicles on offer.
