Drive your dream with Bowater Hyundai

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.

With an estimated driving range of up to 666 km (under WLTP testing) Hyundai NEXO customers benefit from the longest hydrogen-powered capacity currently available, which is comparable to that of cars with a combustion engine. 

The NEXO is characterised by a pure and calm design with optimised features for aerodynamics improving the air flow and reducing air resistance, and State-of-the-art connectivity and navigation system with 12.3-inch colour LCD touchscreen featuring seamless LCD cover glass and split-screen function for high customer usability. 

The Next-Generation fuel cell vehicle shows what future driving will look like and lets customers experience the future with autonomous driving capabilities like Remote Parking and other innovative convenience features such as Blind Spot View Monitor, as well as other advanced active safety features – the Lane Following Assist, a Hyundai first, automatically adjusts steering to assist the driver to keep in the centre of the lane.

With the ix35 Fuel Cell, Hyundai Motor was the first car manufacturer to commercialise hydrogen in a production model with more fuel cell cars on European roads than all other brands combined.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Daryl Pritchard. A depth of experience & the voice of reason.


Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm.
