Chips are down for luxury motors

Gentlemen, start your fires – a Northern Ireland car dealership is using wood chips to heat its swanky vehicle showrooms.

Charles Hurst has invested £250,000 in a wood pellet heating system for its Belfast-based Ferrari and Chrysler Jeep showrooms to reduce carbon and CO2 emissions.

The system has been installed in the Chrysler Jeep showroom, with Ferrari to follow suit in July.

Charles Hurst parent group Lookers Plc has teamed up with Antrim-based BS Holdings to install the heating systems in each of their 120 showrooms and workshop facilities across the UK.
