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.

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.

It has been a huge year for Bowater Toyota.

Imagine the surprise felt by all at the Bowater Toyota table when Tony Bowater got the call to stage as winner of the 2015 Toyota Dealer of the Year at the annual awards held on Friday 19th February in Nelson at the Rutherford Hotel.

The surprise was justified. As reigning Dealer of the Year and current holders of the much coveted Yokoi Cup there was no expectation that the Bowater Toyota team COULD win it again, but there it was, on the big screen! Bowater Motor Group chairman Rodney Bowater and his wife Helen were lucky enough to be at the table as well, and could not help but be filled with pride. Imagine that. Toyota Dealer of the Year two years running, and awarded the prestigious title in our home town!

Being the reigning trophy holders as last years Toyota Dealer Of the Year there came with it a hefty responsibility and an obligation to perform as champions. At our celebration dinner last year we heard from 3 time Adventure Racing World Champion Nathan Fa'avae on what it takes to carry the mantle of World Champion and convert that pride and excitement into a motivation to built on the successful practises that got you there in the first place, so that you could better your performance and remain at the top of your game. This attitude to success has certainly paid off in a big way. 

 
Back to back winners of Toyota Dealer of the Year

Tony Bowater was very proud of the team and humbled to receive this recognition on their behalf on Friday Feb 19th at the annual Toyota Dealer awards that were being held right here in Nelson. With the spotlight already shining on us, and being the reigning Toyota New Zealand Dealer of the Year, Tony went into the awards with no expectations, imagine the excitement of winning the ultimate award back to back!
