BMW Group New Zealand has recognised the outstanding achievements of its dealer network at the 2021 Dealer of the Year awards ceremony.


The gala event was hosted by BMW Group New Zealand at the Park Hyatt Auckland with attendance from senior executives including May Wong, CEO of BMW Financial Services, and management representing BMW and MINI dealerships from across the country.  


The award categories celebrated excellence across numerous areas of the dealership business and underlined the national dealer network’s ongoing commitment to invest in the BMW Group brands while also delivering a superior customer service amid tumultuous market conditions.


Adam Shaver, Managing Director of BMW Group New Zealand – attending his first dealer of the year awards event having started in his position earlier this year – paid tribute to the dealer network’s contributions over the past 12 months.


“Our valued dealer partners are the backbone of our business, and it is an honour to recognise and pay tribute to their efforts and ongoing support of the BMW Group brands,” Mr Shaver said. 


“2021 was a challenging year due to lockdowns and global supply issues, but our dealer network displayed great resilience, remained focused on our customers, and achieved outstanding success.”

Last year saw BMW Group New Zealand achieve positive sales growth across both the BMW and MINI brands and a triple digit percentage increase for electrified models. 


A total of 1,827 new BMW vehicles were registered in New Zealand 2021, marking a 15 per cent increase on the 2020 figure. MINI achieved record sales results with 848 new vehicle registrations – a 28 per cent increase on the same period last year – with 16 per cent of those sales represented by electrified models.


The outstanding growth in electrified models meant that every fifth BMW Group vehicle registered in 2021 was electrified, while every third MINI registered featured a form of electric propulsion.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at
