WHAT DO THE RANGE, EMISSIONS AND REBATE VALUES MEAN?
Emissions are measured in grams/km of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Combustion of fuel in your vehicle’s engine emits CO2 so the more fuel efficient (or electric!) your vehicle, the less CO2 it will produce. These emissions values are based on data from Rightcar NZ: learn more about their environmental ratings system here.
Range indicates the maximum distance a vehicle can go on its full electric charge capacity. It is based on tests by each individual manufacturer under controlled conditions. Real-life range results will vary depending on factors such as vehicle usage and operating conditions. You should not expect that the exact driving range figure will be achieved in real world driving conditions.
Rebate eligibility: under the Clean Car Programme, a rebate may apply for low emission vehicles registered in New Zealand for the first time, if their purchase price is under $80,000.
Used imports eligible for a (slightly lower) rebate. Even if the new vehicle you are purchasing is listed as ‘not eligible’ here, if you purchase it for under $80,000 as a used import, the vehicle may qualify for a rebate.
