Hyundai New Zealand has donated a new Hyundai Tucson to St John for use in a regional operational response role.

The company has supplied St John with more than 300 vehicles – including a Hyundai Santa Fe, Tucson, ix35 SUVs, i30 and i40 cars and iLoad vans – for first-response operational duties, regional management use, education, First Aid training and service delivery.

Since 2005 – over its 11-year relationship with St John – the donated vehicles have travelled more than 34,000,000km, an average of 115,000km per vehicle.

Hyundai New Zealand general manager Andy Sinclair says the relationship is a way for Hyundai New Zealand to give back to the communities of New Zealand. “Our ongoing support of the Order of St John is important to both organisations and we are very proud to help St John’s dedicated staff and volunteers to assist and support New Zealanders,” he said.

He presented the keys to St John head of clinical operations support Murray Holt. “Hyundai have been great to deal with, providing reliable vehicles that meet our operational needs. We have appreciated Hyundai’s support which has contributed to a successful partnership and has helped us deliver care to New Zealand communities,” said Holt.

In addition to its commercial relationship Hyundai New Zealand has often loaned and donated vehicles to boost the organisation’s capability.

Sinclair concluded by saying the two organisations will look for additional ways to work together in future.
