Bill Jacobs Land Rover Hinsdale Hosts Event Celebrating 2014 Range Rover Sport
Yesterday evening’s event held at the Land Rover Hinsdale Center was a spectacular night of wine, song and camaraderie to celebrate the introduction of the new 2014 Range Rover Sport. Two great world releases were celebrated with the vintage of Beaujolais’ Beaujolais Nouveau, a premium French red wine served at the event. The wine was also celebrated in France on the same day as the long anticipated introduction of the all new luxury sport utility vehicle.
Land Rover Hinsdale customers and members of the Hinsdale Chamber of Commerce were in attendance, including Jan Anderson, President and CEO of the Chamber. Jan was kind enough to sit down with us and share her perspective on the event and Land Rover Hinsdale’s impact on the local community.

How was the Land Rover Celebration event last night?
The event was thoroughly enjoyable! I loved catching up with our friends and the staff at Land Rover Hinsdale. The wine tasting was fabulous and I also enjoyed learning more about the new Land Rover products.
How did you like the new Range Rover Sport, and the Land Rover facility?
The new Range Rover Sport looks terrific. I like the body style, improved gas mileage and the third seat option – (I am a new grandmother and appreciate that feature!) The Hinsdale Land Rover facility is always perceived as warm and inviting to all of their customers.

They are long-time members of the Hinsdale Chamber and continually support several of the charitable organizations within the community.
What about the economic impact Bill Jacobs Land Rover has had on the Hinsdale community?
Bill Jacobs Land Rover has a strong impact on the Hinsdale economy through the sales tax revenue it produces here. They help to draw customers from surrounding area communities for automotive purchases – therefore they help drive additional business to Hinsdale.
