The new celebrity car

Hollywood Loves Hybrid Cars

LOS ANGELES - At a glittering Hollywood fundraiser for a noble cause Tom Hanks hosted, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. spoke, former president Bill Clinton pumped flesh. But the real news was in the parking lot. Celebrity after celebrity rolled up to the valet stand in small, snub-nosed, rather drab little cars. Director Rob Reiner, Seinfeld co-creator Larry David and agent Arie Emanuel all arrived in Hollywood's latest politically correct status symbol: the half-electric, half-gasoline hybrid car-the Toyota Prius at 50 miles to the gallon, nearly emission-free and only around $20,000. "Five Priuses drove up in a row," said Gail Reuderman Feuer, a lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council, who drove her own hybrid to the fundraiser. "I said to my husband, 'I don't know if we're going to be able to find our car afterward.' They were all lined up. It was very exciting."

The Prius Challenge

How Green are you?
Can you break free from your habits & Win a week in the new 2012 Toyota Prius?

Welcome to the 2012 Toyota Prius Challenge. A challenge where we ask you a simple question, how fuel efficient a driver are you? We will put you in the car, guide you around our course, and pit your eco score against those of other test drivers.

The all new 2012 Toyota Prius C offers the whole package - not only is it part of the the greenest car family there is, but it is also very affordable, and very easy to drive.
One of the differences with this car is the driver feedback you get from the car. There are a couple of new features here which will actually change your driving habits. It is these new features which immediately impressed us and got us thinking about how best to let you all know about it - and the 2012 Toyota Prius Challenge was born!

The toyota prius c - a car that makes it easy to save fuel, money and the planet!

The all new 202 Toyota Prius C is a turning point for hybrid cars and the mainstream car market. It is the first full hybrid that is actually cheaper to own than alot of non hybrids in the same urban, compact class. At a starting price of just $30,990 it is cheaper than NZ's favourite car, the Toyota Corolla (the range starts with the GX Hatch from $34,490) with a fuel efficiency that will blow your socks off. With some practice, and some tips you would be amazed at how quickly you can bring that already great fuel efficiency down even further!

In order to get as many people behind the wheel of this ground breaking new hybrid we have come up with the Prius Challenge - a competition to appeal to everyone's competitive nature, and the chance to trade half an hour of your time for perhaps winning the use of the Prius C for a whole week, complete with a free tank of petrol!
During June 2012 the Prius Challenge will be in Motueka.

Even though the chance to win the Prius C for a week has now past, you can still take the Prius Challenge and see how green a driver you can be, and see if you can get your score onto the Leader Board.

Honda gives local couple $2500 for test drive.

Written by BMG .

Local couple George & Irma Whittington were the lucky winners of $2500 cash in Honda NZ's March Honda Civic draw.
All they had to do was to come along to the dealership at the corner of Hardy and Rutherford Street and take the new 2012 Honda Civic for a test drive. Their names were then entered into a nationwide draw, which they won.
Not only did they get to experience the motoring masterpiece that is the 9th generation Honda Civic, they also got rewarded handsomely for doing so.

Bowater Honda salesman Nick D'evereux was on hand to present them with the cheque from Honda, which they were very excited to be receiving.
It is always fantastic to be able to share in these such events, and great to see big prizes going to local people!
