在眾家爭鳴、競爭激烈的台灣汽車市場，品牌代理商的版圖近期內再傳出異動。韓國雙龍汽車(SsangYong Motors Corp.)與原任代理商終止合作關係，自七月一日起，永嘉雙龍汽車股份有限公司開始承接與代理雙龍汽車在台灣市場的銷售與維修服務事宜。
新任總代理永嘉雙龍汽車主要由位於台中市的嘉樂寶汽車轉投資設立。嘉樂寶汽車自1987年起代理銷售法國Auverland(幻象)、韓國Asia(亞細亞)、Hyundai Precision(現代精工)等車廠的多款SUV與MPV，期間並承接美國AM General(第一代悍馬車)的維修服務總代理，2002年起成為KIA商用車總代理迄今已有十二年餘，除了堪稱是國內吉普車運動的開山祖師，休旅車風潮的帶動者，同時也是國內代理韓系車品牌成功經驗最為悠久豐富的車商。雙龍汽車此次選擇與永嘉雙龍汽車合作，順勢結合雙方在休旅車系的產銷專業，有機會在台灣市場佔有一席之地。
