Welcome to the Toyota Mobility Project

2022 mobility banner1


The Toyota Mobility Project Pilot is now completed as of 31st January 2024. Thank you to all involved for your support. We are now in the analysis phase as we evaluate the project and make a business case for a nationwide release.


The Toyota Mobility Project takes mobility and turns it into a service for everyone.
This exciting new payment for access model means you get use of the right vehicle, at the right time, for only as long as you need it.

Book a vehicle from your phone from the wide range on offer, for 30 minutes or several hours, unlock it via the App, and drive away. Fuel is included up to 70km on bookings 2 hours or less. Drive it further, or have it for longer, and the cost of extra fuel is deducted from your account unless you bring it back refueled.

Use the right car, for exactly the right purpose for 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours, 1 day or a weekend. The choice is yours to make. It is all about mobility for all, in the latest clean, safe and environmentally efficient vehicles one of New Zealand’s most trusted brand produces.

2002 bowater toyota team 

The Bowater Motor Group acquired the Toyota franchise for the top of the south back in 1990, and as such as welcomed onto the team a large number of the existing Wrightcars Toyota team.

That was 32 years ago, and we are proud to say that we still have a good number of those same individuals still with us and celebrating some significant work anniversaries over this past few months. 

We love celebrating success and excellence and there is something very special about a workplace where so many of the team have chosen to literally invest decades into moving BMG forward. We thank them all, and are very proud to take a minute to celebrate these fantastic people.

Bowater Toyota victorious again at annual awards

2022 Toyota Supreme Award winners

The team at Bowater Toyota were very excited and proud to have been crowned 2021 Toyota New Zealand Supreme Award winners in a virtual event held online last night.

This penultimate award was ontop of the award they had won moments earlier, the 2021 President’s Trophy for outstanding customer service.

Hilary Barry, Toyota NZ CEO Neeraj Lala, and Toyota NZ General Manager of New Vehicles and Product Planning Steve Prangnell, were on the set of the online awards to deliver the outstanding results to Tony Bowater and the management team that had gathered in the new showroom in Achilles Avenue.

It was the 5th time in the last 8 years that Bowater Toyota have won this Supreme Award, cementing their place as industry leaders amongst the dealer network of one of New Zealand’s most trusted brands.

The all new 2021 Toyota Highlander hybrid. Big SUV energy. Small car energy footprint.

2021 toyota highlander hybrid02

As we all look to the future it has become clear that our motoring needs are changing. You can make changes NOW that will have great impact on your energy footprint whilst not altering your day to day experience.

The all new ranges coming from Toyota are giving us all new options.
The new 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid for instance means no compromises for the busy family. It is still a 7 seater, still AWD, and it can still tow up to 2000kg braked, but only has the fuel consumption of 5.6L/100km, and an EV mode.

Drive Away from $63,990
Finance Weekly from $287.66
