The motor dealership site, alongside the River Orwell, was vacated when Marshalls Jaguar moved to new premises at Futura Park in east Ipswich.

The EMG Motor Group is a major vehicle business in East Anglia, for new and used cars with 10 dealerships, and four franchises at various locations for Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Mazda.

A spokesman for EMG said they were busy preparing the Ipswich site for its new purpose and planning to open to the public from August 1.

EMG is also a major employer in the region with sites at Boston, Duxford, Haverhill, Ipswich, King’s Lynn, Spalding, Thetford, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Ely.

It has a Mitsubishi dealership currently at Duxford.

The former Marshalls, Ipswich site in West End Road has been sold by Savills.

Mitsubishi is the sixth biggest Japanese car maker.
