Electric Vehicles will be coming to our dealership
June Gibbons from Stevens Motors attended the recent EV World conference in Auckland in September.
There was a great turn-out with a range of speakers from the auto industry, electricity industry and government. It’s certainly an exciting time to be in the auto industry.
Ford are releasing their first hybrid Mondeo into the NZ market in November. Pricing for the 4 Door Sedan will be $55,990 RRP.
