Great to see some deals coming back to the new car marketplace after the pandemic related supply tightness.

Best deals are the price cuts on EV's and PHEV's which bring the price below the $80k rebate cap (might need to check on what ORC's are) Like the Ioniq 5 I put in the headline. (Frankly the Ioniq 5 Long range 2wd needs to be rebate eligible to compete with the Kia EV6 & Tesla model Y.

First pricing I have seen of the Ioniq 6. Base model will be under $80k so rebate eligible.

Remember as per my other post, government changes to the clean car standard are going to increase the effective price of most cars come July 1.

  • didnt realise staria has 4wd option, 17k a bit step tho

      Yeah, it was a new feature when the Staria replaced the iMax in the lineup.

      The AWD is only offered on the passenger variant, and only bundled with the Limited trim (which is not offered in the FWD), so we don't know how much of that cost is down to the AWD system.

      Limited gets quite a lot more than the base trim, so I suspect most of the cost / value is in that.

      • Bigger wheels and wider tires
      • Surround view
      • auto-dimming rear view mirror
      • Power doors
      • Duel sunroofs
      • Power tailgate
      • LED headlamps, Tailamps and DRL's
      • Leather
      • Driver power seat
      • heated and ventilated front seats
      • Flush sliding 2nd row windows
      • Prox key with engine stop start button
      • Bigger infotainment screen
      • Rear passenger view monitor
      • Bigger driver info display

      However AWD passenger vans are pritty rare in NZ. In the New market it is pretty much this or a VW Multivan 4Motion (From $109,000), so they have a captive buyer's market.

      We do have a bit of a better range in the used market (Delica, Alphard hybrid etc.)

    Anyone tried to pricematch at The Warehouse?

    I wish you posted this before I bought 5 Teslas

    • Hehe.

      This was only announced today :)

      And frankly I think the Inventory Tesla's are the best deal in the NZ new car market at the moment.

    I wish an awd electric, mainly for ski fields and gravel roads, was below 80K and we would get one pretty quickly

    • +1

      It's a pity that no auto maker has managed to bring an AWD ev to market under the $80k rebate cap yet.

      Subaru is hoping too soon though with it's Solterra (based on the toyota bZ4X). Should be a good offerign too with 210mm of ground clearance and a 71.4kWh battery.…

      If you are willing to look at used cars there are a few option's. Tesla model 3 is by far the most common, with a long range 2021 AWD in Napier priced at $62k. There are also Model S, Model Y, and an Audi etron, and at just $82k, a 2020 AWD version of the Ionic 5. Of course no rebates on the already registered used cars.

  • 73kW Ioniq 5 is now almost same price as model Y. Even though it has slightly larger battery, range is about the same. Model Y is probably still the better choice imho

    • +5

      If one is happy with a white inventory model Y, it can be had for $62,222 driveway after the rebate, so quite a bit cheaper. Tesla does omit two charge cords that Hyundai includes, and charges extra for colors other than white, so the gap can close depending on your tastes / needs.

      Personally I agree that the Tesla is a better buy. But of course some people don't like Musk, and some people don't want a car built in china…

      Tesla is more popular by far (given previously only the standard range Ioniq 5 got the rebate). Strengths are its strong acceleration, large frunk, access to supercharger network and tech like built in dash cam. Weakness is it's poor acoustic insulation, and not including conventional stuff like a drivers display / most buttons / keys.

      Ioniq 5 73kWh strengths are it's 800V fast charging, Its styling, it's boot space (when rear seats are slid forwards), 16Amp Vehicle to load. Weaknesses are is the poor spec level on that trim. No rear tints, heated seats, or power tailgate on an $80k car.

      One of the main issues for the Ioniq 5 is that the Kia EV6 Air Long range (77.4kWh). Kia is more expensive in most markets, but for some reason was previously much cheaper, and even with this discount is the same price. Kea is better specified, and has a bigger battery and a longer range (528km WLTP). Main issue with the EV6 is the boot is small for the size of the vehicle.

      On Range, note that Kia / Hyundai tend to get much closer to their rated range in real world conditions.

      "Against its 528km claim, the Kia was tracking toward 478kms of real-world range. Meanwhile, the Tesla, with its 455km claim, would run dry at around 334kms."…

      • Thats a pretty good summary. I get pretty much bang on 450km range on my Model Y though, after latest software updates.

        I like the styling on the Ioniq 5 but the base model has quite a small battery and the 73kWh model is still too expensive, even at the discounted price. It also has a fairly expensive service schedule which adds to ongoing costs which the Y doesn't have, and is frankly unnecessary on an EV. It just feels like the dealers are trying to claw back margin they loose after selling the base car to meet the 80k Clean Car Rebate limit.

        The Y also has a great stereo system and it's faster, so you can see why there are so many Ys around compared to 5s.

        • Amusingly the 73kWh ioniq 5 is now cheaper than the 58kWh version.

          But yeah, in the ioniq 5 one needs to step up to the Elite ($100k RWD) or Limited ($118k AWD) trims to get the nice sound system, with everything else getting a 4 speaker + 2 tweeter system.

          As to why there are so few Ioniq 5's around, up until now, only the 58kWh version was under the rebate cap (and with tesla's recent price cuts, is actaully quite a bit more than a model Y). Frankly the specs sheet on the 58kWh car are quite weak vs Tesla (and the Kia EV6 LR RWD which is basically the same price). Just a 125kW motor in a 1830+kg Kerb weight car (My BMW i3 had the same power and it's was 1315kg), Tow rating of just 750kg. And a Rated range of 384km falling well short of competition at it's price point.
