Bowater Hyundai is an exciting and dynamic place. The Hyundai philosophy of new thinking and new possibilities is one very attuned to our own BMG core values. Hyundai is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing automotive companies, with a very visible presence in New Zealand at the moment.

What makes the Hyundai cars so good is the care at every stage of the process. Hyundai's reputation is built on the fact that they are totally dedicated to exceptional quality, driving performance, safety and customer care. And like the everything we do, we only offer vehicles that are ideal for our conditions, our local New Zealand conditions that are quite unlike anywhere else in the world.

So enjoy the journey with us. Your Hyundai vehicle will be right at home on your favourite roads.

Covid-19 in uncertain times. We have your back.

We hope that you and your family are staying safe. It is great to see that our collective response to COVID-19 is working but we are aware that the future is still uncertain.

Here at Bowater Hyundai, we believe in protecting our family and making things better for our community. So, in response to the effects of COVID-19, we are introducing Hyundai Assurance, a programme designed to help you worry less in these uncertain times. This programme offers financial support for new and existing Hyundai customers.

With Hyundai Assurance, new customers can receive a 6-month payment break in the event of job loss due to COVID-19. And we'll cover the interest incurred during this time. We also have options for existing customers requiring financial support.

Hyundai Assurance

In uncertain times, nothing is more important than family. In response to the effects of COVID-19, we’re protecting our family with Hyundai Assurance. Watch the video and find out more here:

The all new hyundai kona EV is winning awards and smashing expectations. It's also seductive.

Seriously. You need to drive this all electric vehicle to see what all of the fuss has been about. 

This week Bowater Hyundai have had an early release Hyundai Kona EV for test drives. Congrats to all those on the list that got to experience the future. Very seductive and alluring.

New Vehicles in the Bowater Hyundai Showroom right Now - come and test drive!

2016 hyundai elantra

The range of Hyundai's is in a serious update cycle, so there is an almost constant stream of facelift and next generation models to explore. The fluidic design of the body shape is something to behold in itself, especially on the highly reflective floor of the showroom on the corner of Rutherford & Hardy Streets. New generation models like the Hyundai Elantra (pictured above) look stunning. Click here to read the official press release of this car in our news section.

Bowater Hyundai - the story so far

990 hyundai 2018 hero 03

The Bowater Motor Group sought out and purchased the Hyundai Dealership back in March 2007 when Hyundai was relatively unknown in the New Zealand market. The knowledge and expertise our long history in the automotive business brings us is the ability to recognise an opportunity when we see one - and this was the case with the Hyundai franchise. At the time Hyundai was emerging as a strong performer, now it is a world leader, and we are excited to be able to offer these vehicles to the wider Nelson community. We set up shop in Hardy Street and started selling Hyundai's like hotcakes! Now we have the main showroom on the corner of Rutherford & Hardy Streets and another sales yard directly opposite across the road on Hardy Street.

Our Service department, located at the rear of the showroom, is state of the art, with a long serving team of technicians that know all of the ins and outs of the Hyundai range. Their knowledge is not limited to Hyundai's however, they are comfortable servicing all makes and models. Come and see the Parts & Service team, there is plenty of parking on Kerr Street, as well as our own Bowater Hyundai parking accessed off Kerr Street.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Its all about the classics for Sean.

2019 hyundai sean 500

Sean joined the team in the early autumn of 2019, and comes with a local automotive industry pedigree stretching back a number of years. He is passionate about cars and customer service, and is very knowledgable in the aftersales space, so look forward to some excellent customer service!

Sean is one of the lucky few to own a Honda s2000. He is very enthusiastic about original state classics, infact his s2000 still has a cassette player in it even though he doesn't have any cassettes - lets see if we can rememdy that!

Come on down and have a chat, bring an old cassette tape, and have a fresh brewed coffee or cup of tea whilst getting your vehicle sorted.
