An update from Hyundai New Zealand on COVID-19

 Last updated 31st August 2020.

Our COVID-19 operations

At Hyundai New Zealand we are committed to putting the health and wellbeing of our customers, our dealerships and our staff first. In response to COVID-19, we have put several steps in place to ensure everyone stays safe and supported across all alert levels.

We will keep this page updated with any new information we have relating to the virus, the impact on our staff, dealerships and customers and our involvement in local communities.

Our COVID-19 reponse

Hyundai's Online Showroom

Due to the current environment, we understand that many customers may be hesitant to physically view the Hyundai of their choice. Using smartphone technology we have found a solution and are excited to provide the opportunity to experience your desired Hyundai from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Staying safe at work is our number one priority which is why we have adapted our Online Showroom with stringent safety measures that exceed official requirements to ensure the welfare of our Hyundai Specialists whilst working.
