One of Toyota's most iconic vehicles hits major global milestone

2019 Toyota rav4 adventure

Like or lump the advent of the SUV, one has to pay applause to the vehicle that kicked off the trend. And that's the humble Toyota RAV4. 

While sales of the RAV4 have never necessarily dipped since it hit the market in 1994, they reached new heights last year with the worldwide launch of its fifth generation. 

Lauded worldwide for its affordable hybrid option, space, and vast improvement over the fourth generation, the RAV4 scooped up a bunch of awards (including our AA Driven New Zealand Car of the Year People's Choice and SUV of the year awards). 

It also sold in high numbers, with Australian and New Zealand hybrid buyers in particular forced onto a lengthy waiting list as global demand surged. And, that surge in demand has resulted in the RAV4's global sales ticking over 10 million units; 10,080,834 sales recorded at the end of February 2020.

The super green hydrogen powered Hyundai Nexo has arrived.

There are exciting glimpses into the future happening right now down at Bowater Hyundai.

This year we have the honour of presenting the brand new Hyundai Nexo to those attending the Golden Bay A&P Show on Saturday 18th January.

For a couple of days only you can take a look at the future of our personal transportation with NZ’s first hydrogen powered mainstream vehicle. It’s going to be the centrepiece of Bowater Hyundai’s stand at this Saturday’s Golden Bay A&P Show. In the meantime you can see it at Bowater Hyundai on Rutherford Street. It is well worth a look.

Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Wednesday, 15 January 2020

The All-New Hyundai NEXO strengthens Hyundai Motor’s commitment to a cleaner future, taking the lead in fuel cell electric vehicles, offering the most advanced technology on the market with autonomous driving capabilities and the strongest powertrain on offer in that range. 

We are building a new future at Bowater Toyota's store in Richmond. We believe that a better tomorrow starts today.

You may have noticed some big changes are happening at our store in McGlashen Avenue in Richmond. The builders are here but we are still open for business.

We have great faith in our region, and our future, so we have embarked on upgrading our facilities in McGlashen Ave. This will allow us to continue to deliver outstanding service now, and into the future, as changes to automotive technology makes an greater impact on how we all move around.
