Hendra Holiday Park to run plug-ins on renewables
The newcomers will be used by the directors of Hendra Holiday Park, in Newquay, which generates the power for the 100-acre site using its own solar and wind farms.
Will Dexter, financial director at Hendra Holiday Park, said: ‘We wanted something that would be transport for directors as normal cars. What works for us with the PHEV is that it seems to be the perfect marriage of a car that is usable but also puts a massive tick in the Benefit in Kind box. Here is a car that isn’t a tin shell. This is a proper car with decent spec.’
Martyn Ayres, sales manager at Hawkins Mitsubishi in Penryn, added: ‘It started with them just wanting one PHEV but they liked it so much that the order eventually went up to three, with Mitsubishi Service Plans on all of them, which makes sound economical sense. They thought the PHEV was fantastic.
‘And needless to say, we’re delighted that the park has kept the business in Cornwall by coming to us to buy them.’
