Gary Cowell first opened his converted eight service bay dealership on December 1, 1967. He had four employees, and within the first month had sold 2 new and 1 used vehicles. By 1972 Cowell Volkswagen had outgrown their original space, resulting Gary in purchasing the property next door – building a brand new location that housed not only Volkswagen, but also Audi and Porsche vehicles.

Cowell Volkswagen was one of the first dealerships to relocate to the Richmond Auto Mall – as Gary Cowell was one of the founders in 1985. Today, Cowell Auto Group not only owns Cowell Volkswagen, but also Audi of Richmond, Jaguar Richmond and Land Rover of Richmond. All four dealerships are located in the Richmond Auto Mall, employing almost 300 people.

Cowell Auto Group believes the entire experience of owning a car should feel special – to ensure our relationship is a long one based on trust. We want you to be genuinely wowed by our caring team.

Cowell Volkswagen serves Richmond, South Surrey, Tsawwassen, Ladner and Delta.
