About Jaidah Automotive:

Jaidah Group’s history stretches back over 100 years, to the late 19th century. As the Group grew in size and influence, so Qatar was modernizing around it. During the 20th century the automobile – once a luxury – became a necessity, and Jaidah Group responded by launching its passenger vehicle division, Jaidah Automotive, over 50 years ago. The bedrock of Jaidah Automotive’s product suite comes from its long-standing relationship with the globally-renowned motor manufacturer General Motors (GM). The durability of this relationship sees Jaidah Automotive as the sole distributor of GM’s Chevrolet marque in Qatar. The breadth and quality of Chevrolet’s product range is a great place to start in bringing motoring excellence to this country.


Today, Jaidah Automotive is the foremost retailer of its type in Qatar. This is a position that has been achieved through a combination of factors: the best products, numerous showrooms, superlative customer service and a dedication to building relationships with suppliers and, crucially, the all-important customers.


Jaidah Automotive maintains five showrooms in Doha (Jaidah Square, Salwa Road, Jaidah Flyover, Al Rayyan and Al-Khor) where these superlative vehicles can be viewed and purchased, and it also offers three ACDelco Quick-Service Centers (the highest-rated in the Middle East), coupled with four GM-Certified Quick-Service Centers and a main workshop in the industrial area.
