Model Toyota Camry – dual engine electric/petrol
Size: up to 4 passengers with luggage
Location: New Zealand wide
Hybrid vehicles offer the best of both worlds in terms of practicality. It takes conventional pump gas but thanks to the dual engine extends the driving range to 900kms+ per tank while at the same time, consumes half the petrol to normal gasoline engines. The latest model of the Toyota Camry is smooth to drive, powerful and loaded with the latest safety gadget to keep you and your family safe. Ideal for a couple or a family, the large boot allows up to 2 Large and 2 Small Bags.
Electric cars / Tesla
– Model Hyundai Ionic (200km+ range)
– Tesla S (480km range)
Location: Auckland and Christchurch
Greenz Travel is pleased to offer two models of Electric car, making clean travel convenient and accessible.
The Hyundai Ionic is ideal for short distances and day trip from Auckland or Christchurch. It’s stylish, easy to drive and has a 200km verified range. Currently, this vehicle is only available for pick up and drop off in Auckland or Christchurch (must be returned to the same location). Because of the limited kilometre range for this model, we do not recommend it for travelling around the country.
For cross-country travel, the high tech Tesla Model S, with its extended range of close to 500km per charge, is an excellent option for travelling longer distances! The country has currently 7 Tesla superchargers and numerous Destination chargers such as hotels and lodges making your journey easy to plan and charging up the vehicle hassle free. The Tesla S Model is sleek, efficient and sophisticated and will get you from A to B without a heavy conscience. Currently this e-car is only available from Auckland city and airport. Our Greenz Indulgence eco-tour is designed around sustainable and eco-friendly accommodation that offer charging facilities on-site or close-by.
