About Us

Email 2022 making a diference.jpg

Plugn Drive started out with a mission to accelerate the transition to zero emission vehicles. This is in order to co create a sustainable future for us and our children. We started by importing electric vehicles for sale and became NZ's first electric only car dealer. We realised after awhile we couldn't compete with the big guys and changed our plans. We purchased our first Tesla Model 3 in 2019 and began renting it out straight away. Since them many people have hired our Model 3, enjoyed travelling around our beautiful country and seeing whether a Tesla or other electric car would work for them,  many of our customers have gone on to buy an EV and many have model 3's. When the Model Y was released in NZ we were in there on the first day ordering our Model Y and are very excited to be receiving this in late September and offering it up for hire from October 2022.


Our business is run from our home in beautiful Pakiri which we share with the crew - our retradoodles. Our home is in tune with nature and incorporates food forests, regenerative farming practices and organic food. We are busy planting natives in our already covenanted bush in the beautiful Manunui Coastal estate and we run a glamping site so please enquire about our summer Tesla and Glamping packages soon to be released. 


The cars can be picked up from Central Auckland or the airport for an extra fee. Pick up or drop off anywhere else in NZ may be able to be arranged - please enquire for a quote for relocation.
