Award-winning Lancashire luxury restaurant and hotel, Northcote, has taken delivery of a new hybrid electric BMW from Bowker Motor Group.
The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer PHEV will be put to work between the four-red-AA-star, 26-bedroom Northcote hotel in Langho featuring the Michelin star Northcote restaurant; and Café Northcote at Blackburn Cathedral.
And there may even be match day duties for Northcote at the Rovers which runs the corporate hospitality at Blackburn Rovers football stadium.
Craig Bancroft, Northcote managing director, said: “We are delighted with the arrival of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer which is already hard at work throughout Lancashire transporting guests as they arrive and leave or use local amenities.
“The electric hybrid engine is good news for the environment. But, above all, the agreement represents the best of two Lancashire businesses working together and continues the close working relationship between Bowker and Northcote.”
The arrival of the new hybrid BMW maintains Northcote’s focus on sustainability which was recognised in 2015 with the award of Three Star Sustainability Champion status. Northcote has two publicly-available electric car charging points. And has previously driven two all-electric BMW i3’s.
For Bowker Motor Group, Chris Eccles said: “Northcote and Bowker Motor Group share many of the same customers. But we also share many of the same business values too. Working together in partnership like this can only benefit all parties.”
