Beginning of a new era as Honda NZ takes the wheel in Nelson

It’s fair to say COVID-19 has been the catalyst that has caused us to review all our operations. Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures.

Here is an announcement from Bowater Honda CEO & BMG Director Chris Bowater.

"Regretfully, after 47 years our partnership with Honda NZ will come to an amicable and mutually agreed, end. We will be a leaner organisation going forward but we will actually come through these changes in good shape, more focused and determined than ever to continue to successfully serve the Nelson / Tasman communities for many more years to come.

New Toyota Yaris Hatch is made of fun

The new generation 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatch stands above the rest in the small car segment with its fun to drive attitude combined with class-leading fuel economy, safety and advanced hybrid technology.

The 2020 Yaris Hatch is new from the ground up and has been designed with fun in mind. Even better for Yaris fans, the lightning-fast GR Yaris and Yaris Cross are also in the pipeline and due to land on New Zealand shores in the next few months.

Toyota New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Neeraj Lala, said the new fourth generation Yaris is the most premium small car ever built by Toyota.

“The new Toyota Yaris arrives at a perfect juncture in time when consumers are wanting a characterful compact car that is fun to drive with premium interior touches, while also happy in the knowledge they are driving an extremely efficient vehicle with state-of-the-art safety,” he says.

For the first time, a hybrid Yaris Hatch will be available in New Zealand. The Yaris Hatch will be available in two powertrain options - a petrol version utilising a newly developed 1.5L three cylinder engine and a full hybrid-electric version.
