About Bowater Hyundai

Proud to be Kiwi Owned

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. With an experience in the automotive industry stretching back to 1945, the knowledge and expertise that this brings also allows us 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! 7 years on, in March 2014 we completed the refurbishment of the new larger Bowater Hyundai Showroom on the corner of Rutherford & Hardy Streets and moved in. Bowater Hyundai has been going from strength to strength. The Hyundai range has been so well received here in the top of the south that we are able to engage in comprehensive support of several key community initiatives and organisations like Victory Boxing, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nelson, the Pinnacle Programme, and the Spirit of NZ to name just a few.
