AMG Mercedes Plug-In Hybrid Hearse Investment for Norman McBriar & Son

Family-run Norman McBriar & Son have expertly assisted families in the Saintfield area in County Down for many years. The supportive and well-trained team guides families through the difficult process to ensure the perfect farewell ceremony.

After more than two successful decades, the companyā€™s continuous improvement drive has recently seen a relocation to larger purpose-built premises which boasts a mortuary, beautifully decorated reception and viewing rooms, offices, and garage facilities. A brand-new AGM Mercedes petrol plug-in Hybrid Hearse is the latest investment boost for the business with a matching limousine on order.

Capturing the stately AMG elegance, this hearse not only impresses with its looks, but it also delivers significantly lower carbon emissions and saves on fuel costs. This high-performance vehicle operates in silence during the ceremony, adding a dignified presence.

The hearse is personalised with a Vogue Grey deck, integral cover boards, and illuminated signage and benefits from driverā€™s tech including a reversing camera, Satellite Navigation, and Bluetooth.

Norman McBriar commented:

ā€œPresentation and performance were crucial factors in our new hearse decision but also the ability to offer our families a more environmentally conscious choice. This AMG Hearse has exceeded all our expectations and offers fuel cost savings and reduced CO2 emissions.ā€
