Diamond Ambassador Lunch: Electric Cars & Taxation at Hippo

Are you part of the car revolution? Hippo is opening its doors for an exclusive event …

Hippo Motor Group is opening its doors on Wednesday 13 February for an afternoon of fun twinned with expert car tax financial advice.

This is an exclusive event, by invitation only to East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce Diamond Ambassadors. Held at Hippo Motor Group and in conjunction with taxation specialists PM+M, the event is set to be an informative and exciting event.

Guests will have access to the largest range of prestige new and used supercars in the North of England, with an opportunity to test drive! A discussion with tax manager Julie Walsh from PM+M the chartered accountancy, business advisory and wealth management group, will provide guidance on company electric car tax, covering what a company and employee need to contribute. She will also be answering questions from the audience.

For those who want to be at the forefront of the new motoring golden age, this business event is one not to be missed. The electric car market is supported by a massive range of incentives, including heavily subsidised home and office electric vehicle charge points plus ultra-fast charge revolutions from companies like Zapgo.

This world-changing technology is a hot topic and Hippo Motor Group are welcoming individuals to learn more, discuss and debate the future of motoring. Hippo sell a complete range of vehicles including city cars, leading brands and true supercars such as: Tesla, McLaren and Lamborghini.

Tom Preston, Managing Director at Hippo said:
"It's a really exciting time within the industry and this change towards electric vehicles will have an impact on almost everyone. There is a government commitment to stop sales of internal combustion engine powered cars within 21 years and this means there truly is a technology race, particularly to produce a diverse range of options."

East Lancs CEO Miranda Barker said:
"We are all really looking forward to this event. Not only will it be fun, but I expect we will learn a lot too. Our Diamond Ambassadors are a group of successful and ambitious businesses who are ideally placed to act as spokespeople for their sector. In the past Diamond Ambassadors have been influential in shaping government policy, I'm sure there will be lots of lively discussion generated."

The exclusive, by invitation only event will take place at Hippo Motor Group, Wednesday 13th February from 12.00pm - 2.00pm at Unit 26 Trident Park, 3 Trident Way, Blackburn, BB1 3NU.

This event is free of charge and is available to Diamond Ambassador members only.
