NZ Offshore Powerboat Series - Gills Sponsorship


This year Gills are getting right behind the NZ Offshore Powerboats by sponsoring one of the Superboat entrants, Team3!

Team3 have come over from Australia to take on the Kiwis in the ANZAC Trans-Tasman Cup. Gills have provided their Demonstrator SINOTRUK unit to tow their boat.

Team 3 Beachlands

Round 1 got underway this weekend (Auckland Anniversary) on Lake Taupo with some fierce competition. It was great to see the racing from the lake terrace as well as soak up the atmosphere! Unfortunately the boys didn't place however they are looking forward to Beachlands on the 13th February where the open ocean will be their forte.

100% Kiwi- owned

The Hyundai brand has grown rapidly into a global auto industry powerhouse. But first and foremost, Hyundai New Zealand is a New Zealand company.

All our dealerships – and Hyundai’s head office – are 100% owned and operated by New Zealanders. That’s something we’re pretty proud of.

This structure gives you the best of both worlds. The benefits of global resources and the huge investment in Research & Development that Hyundai makes, combined with our local commitment and understanding.

Hyundai World- wide

 Hyundai and the Environment

new thinking environment placeholder 01

Minimising our environmental impact to protect the world we live in is central to everything we do at Hyundai. It starts right at the design-stage, where we work to ensure our vehicles are as efficient as they can be. By designing lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles, we reduce emissions and resource use.  We are also developing hybrid, electric, and hydrogen vehicles. Our aim is to reduce vehicle emissions in our models by 50%, with the ultimate goal being the production of vehicles that burn no fossil fuels at all.

You can see our commitment to the environment in other ways, too, including increased recycling and our support of Sustainable Coastlines.
