$150,000

funding

boost

for new

museum

TE ŪAKA the Lyttelton Museum

has had a $150,000 boost to its

$9.9 million rebuild plans.

The money was donated by

the Lyttelton Port Company

and announced at the museum’s

Christmas party by the out-going

chief executive Roger Gray,

The total cost for the new

museum includes the cost of the

build construction, museum

fit-out, display design and installation,

professional fees, and one

year of operating costs.

It is anticipated that it will

take about four years to raise

this sum, but construction could

commence sooner, once 50 per

cent of the cost of the build has

been raised.

Lyttelton Historical Museum

Society president Peter Rough

said the museum is “extremely

grateful” for the contribution

that will go towards replacing the

museum that was destroyed in

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

GEORGE LOCKYER has a

thing about garages, so much

so he has written a great book

about them.

On pages 12 and 13 today we

look at Kiwi Garages – Inside

George, who lives in

Governors Bay, travelled

the length and breadth of

New Zealand, often on his

Kawasaki, to document some

of the country’s most eclectic

garages, where cars rarely

feature.

The avid motorcyclist relied

on friends, mates of a mate

and internet search engines

to source material for 28

chapters, including images.

The British goes up for sale

AS IS WHERE IS: The British Hotel has gone on the market, pictured in 2021 and before it was rebuilt in the 1940s.

• By Kristie Boland

THE ICONIC British Hotel in

Lyttelton is on the market.

The hotel overlooking the port

at 10 Oxford St is an ‘as is where

is sale’.

Ray White real estate agent

Mike Shine said there has been

strong interest in the building

both here and abroad. It will be

a deadline sale if not sold prior.

Shine said it was very difficult

to put a price on the iconic

building.

Currently, the hotel is home to

four local businesses – Arcana

Tattoo parlour, the Commoners

Bar, the Lost Property junk

shop, and Big Sam’s Tools.

The British was badly

damaged during the

earthquakes and is slowly being

restored.

Current owners Rebecca

Lovell-Smith and her partner

Christian Carruthers bought the

building post-quakes and applied

for a city council heritage

grant to assist with the cost of

building a new roof and parapet.

They could not be contacted

before Bay Harbour News

deadline about the sale but said

previously they had always loved

the building.

“We didn’t want it to

be demolished after the

earthquakes,” she said.

“We knew how important it

was to Lyttelton; it holds a fond

place in many people’s hearts.”

Rebuilt in the 1940s, the

British has a rich history with a

colourful reputation.

It was frequented by sailors

from all over the world, who saw

it as home whenever their ships

arrived in port.

‘Video just went crazy’

• From page 1

Abraham said Burt was a very

special sheep whom she had

raised since he was a lamb.

“My partner Tom works on the

farm we live on and he brought

him [Burt] to me one day because

he had lost his mum and

all the other lambs had already

left the farm and there was

this little newborn just floating

around with no home to go to,”

Abraham said.

When Burt started doing funny,

quirky things, such as acting

like a dog, she started filming

him. Burt’s TikTok profile now

includes videos of him frolicking

through the house, sleeping on

the couch in front of the fire and

getting into the neighbour’s rose

garden.

“My sister told me I should

start him his own TikTok . . . I

did and it went a bit crazy.”

The secret to Burt’s success

was partly down to the fact that

people were not used to seeing

sheep hanging around the house,

but his personality was also a

major factor, Abraham said.

“Burt’s also quite a character, I

live on a farm with a lot of sheep,

but there’s something different

about Burt.”

During the recent drought

in the area, Burt’s social media

presence declined because he

had to be shifted to a paddock

WOOLLY FAME: Burt the sheep has seven million followers

on TikTok.

PHOTOS: RNZ

further away to ensure he could

get enough food, she said.

“Now that it has started raining

again, we’ve brought Burt

closer to the house again . . . so

I just started re engaging with

his, with his followers again, and

his most recent video just went

crazy.”

She hoped some of his future

work on social media could help

promote the wool industry.

“Apart from that it’s just about

making people laugh, I love

sharing Burt with the world, and

I’m glad people enjoy him and

love him as much as I do.”

Collection reflects

port’s activities

• From page 1

“The Lyttelton Port Company’s

contribution will be a significant

boost towards realising a new

purpose-built museum to

safeguard and share precious

taonga of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour and tell stories, such

as those about epic voyages of

exploration to Antarctica,” Rough

said.

For many years the old museum

was a valued part of the

Lyttelton community, regularly

hosting schools and other groups

and providing much interest and

enjoyment to locals and

visitors. Lyttelton is integral to

Canterbury and the stories of

Lyttelton are entwined with

those of its port. The museum’s

collection reflects activities that

occurred in the port, especially

from times when it was a base for

famous voyages of exploration to

Antarctica.

Said Gray: “Lyttelton Port

Company is thrilled to contribute

to such a worthy and historic

project, in no small part because

so much of the area’s history is

shared. We hope LPC’s show of

support for the project will be the

foundation for the fundraising

effort and encourage many more

contributions.”

• Treasures from the past, page

21

A concept design for the new Lyttelton Museum. The bold

architecture is said to be an opportunity to create an iconic

image, which will attract both locals and visitors alike.

WE ARE ON THE

MOVE AGAIN...

MAX THE cat who trekked the

Port Hills from Hoon Hay to

Lyttelton is at the tail end of his

nine lives.

Mention Max to any resident

on Somes Rd in Lyttelton and

they will likely have a story to

tell.

Max plods up the street daily

in search of a meal and a spot

to rest his tired limbs. In the

evening, Max makes his way to

Alister Cresswell’s for dinner

and usually stays the night.

“He has a meal here then goes

to the other neighbours, if he’s

not happy with that food, he

goes down to Karen’s and eats

there,” said Cresswell.

It’s no surprise Max is weighing

in at over 10kg.

But Max hasn’t always been a

fat cat.

After the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, Max’s home in

Lyttelton was demolished. He

was left with a neighbour while

his owners looked for a new

home.

Max moved into his owner’s

new home in Hoon Hay but

the port-loving feline had other

ideas. A Lyttelton cat through

and through, he made his way

back.

It took Max about three weeks

to trek home. The journey took

a toll.

TO A NEW LOCATION IN

FERRYMEAD, DUE TO

EARTHQUAKE REPAIRS

Cresswell was shocked to see

Max had come back.

“I was quite upset when I saw

him because he was in such bad

condition, his paws were cut and

broken and he was starving . . .

he had been living very rough.”

But Max bounced back and

was soon up to his old tricks.

That is, until he fought with a

possum and had his eye ripped

from the socket.

Max’s visit to the vet cost

$1000. Word spread and the

to pay Max’s bill. Again, he

healed well.

Cresswell said Max later had

another incident and came

home “caked in mud and pond

weed . . . not in a good way.”

“We put him by the fire over

night expecting him to be dead

in the morning. Then he was up

at the fridge the next morning

waiting for his breakfast, 100 per

cent cured.”

Cresswell remembers after

the earthquakes, when buildings

had been demolished, rats scurried

from Lyttelton up the Port

Hills.

Max took to hunting.

“He used to catch a rat and put

it at the bottom of the clothesline

. . . I lost count at about 117,”

Cresswell said.

Cresswell wasn’t the only one

on the street to receive Max’s

offerings.

Betty and David Purdue would

come outside to find Max in

their backyard.

“For years he’s come to visit

CONTENTED: Tabby Max walked back to Lyttelton after being moved to Hoon Hay. He now ambles from home to home

searching for meals and eating treats.

Max sitting very proudly with an

offering,” said Betty.

“He’s such hoot, he really is. A

very independent cat.”

Max is old and frail now and

his good years of chasing rats,

dogs and possums are coming to

an end.

“He’s just about at the end

of his tether. But he still walks

around thinking he’s in charge

. . . it’s just amazing how the

community got behind him and

looked after him, put up with his

antics,” said Cresswell.

Inside the beloved ‘man’ cave: A spark plug

• By Chris Barclay

GEORGE LOCKYER seems

surprised to be asked to leave the

kitchen and wander down the

brick pathway to his garage, which

the part-time author admits, is

nothing to write home about.

And the Londoner is wellplaced

to downplay the appeal

of the building at the foot of his

Governors Bay property, a standard

structure that houses the

usual conglomeration of tools,

gym equipment and machinery,

including two motorbikes.

After all, the 62-year-old has

travelled the length and breadth

of New Zealand, often on his

Kawasaki, to document some

of the country’s most eclectic

garages for his fifth book: Kiwi

Garages - Inside New Zealanders’

happy places.

A brickie and stonemason by

trade, Lockyer grew up in a twoup

two-down Borough of Hounslow

council estate in Isleworth,

so garaging was a foreign concept

until he moved to Newtown in

Sydney’s inner west in 1988. It

still took another dozen years

until he had one at his disposal.

Back home, garages were reserved

for the privileged – those

up the Twickenham Rd in leafy,

well-heeled Richmond.

“You walk from the council estate

in Isleworth into Richmond

document others’.

and suddenly you’re in a different

world. I didn’t know anyone

who had a garage.”

He certainly does now.

About a year ago Lockyer, who

moved to New Zealand with his

Invercargill-born wife Karen in

2003, was encouraged by publisher

Bateman Books to access

garages not designed for car storage

– unless we’re talking about

Gavin Bain’s Bugatti collection

on Banks Peninsula.

The avid motorcyclist relied

on friends, mates of a mate and

internet search engines to source

material for 28 chapters, including

images.

“I took all the photographs

apart from two, the dominatrix

sent them to me. She wasn’t in

her full regalia when I interviewed

her,” Lockyer explained.

‘Red Fox’ was an anomaly

among the interviewees; she was

the only one who requested her

details stay under wraps, other

than to reveal the “unassuming”

garage/dungeon is at the top of

the South Island.

collector, a dominatrix and an electric chair

There is also a lack of specifics

about how Lockyer found

the former aquarium worker,

walking track guide and

veterinary nurse.

“It was a relation-of-a-relation,

of a friend-of-a-friend, she made

all these phone calls and put me

in contact with her,” Lockyer

said cryptically.

“I texted her, she sent me her

email address and she was all

for it.”

Each chapter was vetted by

the subject, mainly for security

reasons as the collections are

not just valuable from a personal

perspective.

“There’s a very expensive bottle

collection, you wouldn’t believe

some of them are so expensive,

some of them are 20 grand

each. I said to the guy (who was

reticent about his location being

publicised) ‘How about I just put

you live in rural Canterbury?’ I

always ask about names as well,”

Lockyer said.

One name stood out for

Lockyer: Raoul Lealand, the

‘mad’ inventor from Taupo.

“He was just fascinating, he’s

a genius really, the stuff he made

in his garage . . . everything he

made was from junk, just rubbish,

he made three steampunk

motorcycles and they all go. It

was unbelievable, the talent of

that guy.

“Right at the end he showed

me his electric chair. He put

the crown on, started pedalling

and he said it puts 30,000 volts

through you (at a low amperage).

He said school-kids love to have

a go.”

A fellow motorcyclist helped

link Lockyer up with Lealand.

Google was another useful ally.

“I found vintage car clubs, doll

clubs, sculptors, there’s pages for

artists. There’s always a president

of this or that so I email them,”

he said.

While that tactic worked to

track down David Smith’s radio

room in Havelock North, the

model railways community

weren’t exactly on the same

wavelength.

“The train collectors were very

cagey. I did speak to a few clubs,

they said ‘We’ll put it out on our

newsletter but don’t expect any

response because our guys are

very secretive’. They were right.”

The surprises were not limited

to Red Fox’s paraphernalia or the

shock factor to Lealand’s minimally

powered contraption.

Take Dennis Gooch’s garage in

Linwood, home to around 2500

spark plugs, the oldest is a rare

Boiron plug from 1899.

“It was amazing because a)

why? and b) you had no idea

about the complexity of spark

plugs, how many there are. Every

one had a story. He’d pick one

up and say ‘This is from the first

Mercedes Benz’,” Lockyer said.

He was mindful of including

women in the collection, though

it was a challenge, prompting a

disclaimer in his introduction.

“I have tried to include as

many women as possible in this

project, but the fact is garages

seem to be, for the most part, the

domain of a male,” he wrote.

Other than ‘Red Fox’, Nelson

sculptor Fiona Sutherland and

potter Many Garguilo provide

the female perspective.

There was another touchy subject

for Lockyer to explore: What

happens to these collections

when the owners pass on?

“I like to think I establish a

bit of a rapport after an hour

of talking. At the end you’d say

‘What happens when you

in his collection, while inventor Raoul Leyland has built an

pop your clogs?’

“I think most of them have

sons who want to carry it on. It’s

50:50 probably. Half of them,

their sons and daughters will

inherit it and they’re keen to

maintain it, the other half are

just going to flog it.

“With some of them, you just

get that vibe that you’re a bit too

personal by asking that question.”

COMMUNITY volunteers

Groups of volunteers

The Estuary Trust,

together with mana

were lost during an

They planted native trees and vegetables, and

Personal Pathways for Success

This year our Linwood College at Ōtakōro students have

received an unprecedented total of $83,000 in scholarship

funding from the University of Otago.

Jasmine Keating received the Māori Entrance

Scholarship of $13,000 over two years,

Phoenix Evans received the Māori Entrance

Scholarship of $13,000 over two years, Ranalia

Savelio received the Pacific Peoples’ Entrance

Scholarship of $13,000 over two years and

Becky Bennett received the Otago Pathway

Scholarship with a value of $5,000.

Linwood College at Ōtākaro has cultivated extremely

beneficial relationships for our students with our

local and other universities. This year our Careers

Department has been working alongside Otago’s

Liaison Officer, Prajesh Chhanabhai, resulting in an

unprecedented amount of scholarships being offered

to our graduating seniors. We have seen a wonderful

number of students offered a total of $83,000 towards

their study at the university. The majority of these

students are intending to study Health Sciences at

Otago, while Jasmine Keating will be focusing on

Education with a major in Māori. This is an exciting

result for our Careers Department in connecting and

advocating for our ākonga in their chosen fields.

Discovering, establishing, and staying the course

of a student’s pathway has always been an integral

focus of our school. It is fitting that the name of our

new rebuilt school, conceptualized and gifted to us

by Ngāi Tūāhuriri, will be Te Aratai College, meaning

Pathway to the Sea. We often use the allegory of

the braided river to inform our students of creating

their educational purpose, finding their own distinct

tributary through all that the riverbed can teach us.

Within our curriculum there is much we do to engender

our ākonga with their chosen futures. Both our junior

and senior school use Career Central to make

their subject choices. Career Central is software

developed here in Aotearoa that utilizes career

development theory based on input from schools,

businesses and institutions all over the country. It

manages a student’s subject choices, maps them

throughout their schooling, and offers classes that

align to their chosen career pathways. Students

make these choices in our Ako classes, LCŌ’s

version of a vertical form class. These classes have

students of every year level, enabling conversations

about subjects and experiences across the school,

junior to senior.

Paul Reyes, Kaye Maravilla, Rose Lim and Daniel

Nieuwenhuize all individually received a 150th

Entrance Scholarship of $13,000 over two years.

Students attending the Rotary National Science

and Technology Forum.

Student pathways are also discovered and explored

through our extensive EOTC (Education outside

the classroom) programmes. These knees-deep,

hands-on experiences send students beyond the

school gates. Among these are our Level 3 Business

students going to Ara to pitch ideas in a dragon’s

den-style competition and compete in the Lion

Foundation Youth Enterprise awards. Our Level 2

Tourism classes travel to Queenstown and Hamner

to visit tourism operators and locations. We send

our Year 12 Science students to the Rotary National

Science and Technology Forum for high achieving

Year 12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering

and Mathematics) students who are interested

in exploring where these subjects can take them

through to university and beyond. We have a tour

to the University of Otago where students meet

lecturers, deans and OU students to discuss courses

and varsity life.

It is in these excursions that our students and

faculty have created the connections and ongoing

relationships that have helped garner such an

impressive scholarship result for our seniors moving

into tertiary education. We watch, with eager eyes,

to see what possibilities and potential their pathways

may realize.

Traffic light system hits rock concert

• By Chris Barclay

David

Parlane

THE ‘TRAFFIC light’ system

has put a stop to veteran

Australian rockers Jimmy Barnes

and the Choirboys sharing the

limelight at next year’s Selwyn

Sounds music festival, frustrating

promoter David Parlane.

Organisers

have reluctantly

rearranged the

line-up for the

March 5 event at

Lincoln Domain

after the Government’s

Covid-19

restrictions

effectively

prevented Australian nationals to

enter the country before April 30.

“It’s the bane of the promoter,”

Parlane said of the Government’s

restrictions to combat the pandemic.

“I understand we’re in a

pandemic and we all have to live

with it. It’s just frustrating. The

logic (of the traffic light system)

doesn’t compute.

“How do we ever get to green?

We should be in green. Canterbury’s

at 97 per cent first dose

(vaccination), 92 per cent second

dose.

“There’s no community

transmission, there’s not people

in hospital. Does that not tell

you that we’re supposed to be in

green?”

KIWI HITS: Home-grown musicians like Automatic 80s will again dominate the line-up for the sixth edition of the Selwyn

Sounds music festival.

Los Angeles-based Kiwi singer

songwriter Gin Wigmore is the

key addition to the programme,

with her arrival home for a tour

in March perfectly timed as she

already planned to perform in

Hawke’s Bay, Leigh, Raglan,

Gisborne and Nelson.

Blam Blam Blam, renowned

for their 1980s hit There is no

and Christchurch covers band

Automatic 80s also bolster the

schedule.

Stevens of Noiseworks and INXS

fame does meet the criteria as

a Kiwi, as do US-based Greg

Johnson and London-domiciled

songwriter and BBC Strictly

Come Dancing vocalist Reitta

Austin.

Stevens was meant to perform

at this year’s rescheduled event

in April but was unable to attend

due to Covid-19 measures.

Gravelly-toned Barnes, who

performed at the second edition

of the day-long festival in 2018,

told fans he was disappointed

not to showcase his classics for a

second time.

“I’m gutted the traffic light

system in NZ has meant it isn’t

feasible for my team and I to

head over – Selwyn Sounds is

such an epic event, but I will be

back,” he said.

Wigmore and Stevens will be

backed by other home-grown

music scene stalwarts Ardijah,

and Stellar*.

Johnson, who has 30 years of

material on his song list, was

looking forward to making his

Selwyn Sounds debut.

“The people of Canterbury

have been very kind to me over

the years and I can’t wait to play

for them at this great event,” he

said.

Parlane said more acts would

be announced early next year.

Photographers combine for exhibition

THREE Sumner photographers

are showcasing their work at The

Rock.

Meet the photographers:

Rose Joy has always

had a passion

for photography.

She likes New

Zealand’s wild

landscapes and

portraiture. After

a decade of photographing

New Zealand landscapes

Rose now focuses on photographing

people in the landscape. Her

quest is to express beauty and light

of both people and landscapes in

graphic style images.

Jon Turner has

been taking photos

since he was a

child. He has used

multiple types

cameras in his

time. The images

on display are what

has become most special to him. “I

hope that through them you can

appreciate the wonders of God’s

creation in this beautiful land,”

Turner said.

Jan Taylor is a science educator,

he has a background in research,

loves the outdoors and is a keen

photographer. Over many years

of experience behind the camera,

he shows a penchant for wildlife

or the capture of interesting landscapes.

More recently, he has taken

time to explore local scenery. “It

amazes me just how lucky we are

living in this part

of the world and I

do hope that some

of my photographs

communicate this

sentiment,’’ Taylor

said.

Their work

will be on show during December

and January at The Rock in Sumner.

The Rock is a charitable trust

The First Four Ships

CANTABRIANS are familiar

with observing Canterbury

Anniversary on Show Weekend

each year, coinciding with the

agricultural and pastoral show

which has been running since

1862.

However, that observance (the

second Friday after the first Tuesday

in November) has only been

a convention since the late 1950s.

Prior to that, Canterbury’s

anniversary was marked on

December 16, the date that the

first two of the fleet of four ships

carrying the Canterbury Association

settlers arrived at Lyttelton.

After a journey of approximately

three and a half months

from England, the Charlotte Jane

was the first ship to arrive on the

morning of December 16, 1850,

followed closely by the Randolph

that same afternoon. The Sir

George Seymour arrived the next

day and the Cressy on December

27.

These First Four Ships carried

approximately 773 settlers;

a carefully selected crosssection

of society including

colonists like James Fitzgerald

the first Superintendent of

the Canterbury Province, the

architect Benjamin Mountfort

and others. Alongside them

were 200 single men and

women including domestic

servants, carpenters, bricklayers,

blacksmiths and a sole butcher.

In 1950, Lyttelton’s centennial

celebrations were extensive;

including but not limited to a

special service blessed by the

Archbishop of Canterbury,

speedboat races, a commemorative

walk, a sumptuous banquet

and ball and the outfitting of a

coal hulk the Darra to represent

the Charlotte Jane which then

took part in a reenactment of the

pilgrim’s landing.

Ongoing celebrations took a

terrible turn in January 1951

during the Canterbury Centennial

Race from Wellington

to Lyttelton. A huge southerly

storm caused the demise of two

yachts the Husky and the Argo

and tragically, the loss of 10 crew.

George Brassell and a volunteer

crew on the trawler MV

Tawera saved six men off the

yacht Astral; Brassell was awarded

a Royal Humane Society gold

medal for his dramatic rescue

efforts.

For a number of years from the

1980s until 2010, an appropriate

series of flags to mark the arrival

of the Charlotte Jane were flown

from the flagpole at the Timeball

Station. Although the Timeball

Station was not built until 1876,

a flagstaff was positioned on the

site as early as 1850 to give news

of the arrival and movement of

ships.

https://www.heritage.org.nz/

places/places-to-visit/canterbury-region/lyttelton-timeball

At 8am a square red flag was

flown on the southern yardarm,

indicating that a sailing ship had

been sighted off the heads.

In 1850, this signal would have

caused a flurry of excitement in

the nascent port. At 10.30am that

red signal was rehoisted to the

Ioniq 5 EV a step into the future

THE FUTURE is here.

Hyundai has launched the

Ioniq 5 in New Zealand. If you

are thinking from the outset that

it is just another electric sport

utility vehicle then you have

better think again. It is a car that

is almost out of this world.

Everyone who talked about the

Ioniq 5 when it was in my care

talked of space age and futuristic

– and it is, it looks like something

out of Star Trek, it’s a car that I

dreamed of as a child, the way I

thought cars would look in the

21st–century.

It’s not just the way the

matte-painted, nature-inspired

exterior is styled either, the

interior is nothing like I’ve seen

before in what would be deemed

a mass produced car, the bold,

spacious design is highlighted in

the evaluation car’s case by light

grey leather.

What’s more, the Ioniq 5 is the

technology champion, it’s engineered

with practicality in mind,

it has range and it has speed, not

withstanding that it is still the

practical car we have come to

expect from the modern SUV.

How Hyundai has rolled all of

these aspects into one model to

satisfy those who want an electric

vehicle kind of amazes me, but it’s

here with all those tempting elements

that will lure many buyers.

The Ioniq 5 arrives in a complicated

array of models – six in

total. The entry-level car with

two-wheel-drive and a 58kWh

battery pack lists at $79,990. It is

the only model in the range that

qualifies for the Government’s

$8625 clean car discount. The

rest of the range carry a 72.6kWh

battery pack and arrive in two or

four-wheel-drive form. The test

car was the range-topping 4WD

Limited at $112,990. If you wanted

to save $3k you could dispense

with the roof-top solar panels and

have a vision roof instead. The solar

panels are there to help charge

the battery pack and power the

heating and air conditioning.

Hyundai claims a driving

range of well over 400km for the

Ioniq 5 with the high capacity

battery pack, of course there are

many factors which govern that,

but I drove the evaluation car

quite sprightly and it didn’t lower

the capacity at any great rate.

Therein lies another surprise,

the Ioniq 5 has ultra fast charging,

you can boost the batteries

to 80 per cent from 10 per cent

in 18min, if you can hook into an

appropriate charge port, a 5min

boost will give you 100km of

range.

The evaluation car came only

with a three-pin domestic charge

cable and it’s fair to say I was a

little bit surprised to see it had an

estimated full charge time of 41

RADICAL: The shape of the Ioniq 5 is futuristic. The design

cues are carried through to the interior.

HYUNDAI IONIQ 5: Fully electric and available in a six-model range starting from $79,990.

hours when I plugged it in from

empty. But, in effect, an overnight

charge will easily take care of that

daily commute to the Canterbury

townships.

I mentioned the Ioniq is fast,

in Limited form it will lunge

to 100km/h from a standstill

in 5.2sec and will fly through a

highway overtake in 4sec (80-

120km/h). Hyundai also claim a

top speed of 185km/h.

The Ioniq 5’s four-wheel-drive

system comes through two

electric motors – front and rear

obviously. In terms of power output

the combined total is listed at

225kW, but the most interesting

figures are those of combined

torque – 605Nm in total – those

outputs available instantly and

everywhere in the speed band, it

is a quick car and one that feels

exciting to drive.

First, though, you need to familiarise

yourself with the controls,

there’s a wealth of technology in

the car and the layout is like nothing

you’ve seen anywhere before.

The display graphics dominate

the interior and the functions are

deep, the system is reasonably

intuitive, but you’ll need time to

remember the drive lever (gearshift)

is on the right hand side of

the steering column.

Other than that, the Ioniq 5

• Price – Hyundai Ioniq 5

Limited, $112,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4635mm; width, 1890mm;

height, 1605mm

• Configuration – Electric

motors, four-wheeldrive,

225kW, 605Nm,

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.2sec

drives much like the feel you

get in any EV, although there is

strong retardation through motor

braking that eases somewhat the

pressure you need to put on the

brake pedal. There are also individual

power preferences through

selecting the drive mode that best

suits your driving style.

I took the Ioniq 5 through to

Darfield and return, and drove it

vividly; of course, it is stunningly

quiet and swift, and covers distance

effortlessly. It rides on huge

20in wheels and there’s a lot of

rubber on the road, as a consequence

there is a lot of steering

feed and good loading on the

steering wheel.

A couple of challenging corners

near Burnham were met with

dignity and accuracy. The weight

of the batteries is contained sandwiched

in the floorpan which

keeps the centre of gravity low,

and even though it is tall (1.6m)

the Ioniq 5 doesn’t move over the

suspension, body movement is

all but negated. A sporty driving

sensation is constantly on offer if

you are tackling a long open road

journey.

The Ioniq 5 is also a car that

will suit all driving styles and all

journeys. You can’t market any

car as an SUV unless it meets all

criteria, and I’m pleased to report

the Ioniq 5 covers the bases in

that respect. It also has much kit,

column space doesn’t allow for a

comprehensive detailing but to

say it wants for little in terms of

comfort, convenience and safety.

The Ioniq 5’s in-your-face

design is well matched through

its ability. There’s no doubt

Hyundai has put research and

development into the vehicle.

It’s a bold statement, but it also

reeks of functionality and will

certainly satisfy those who want

to be in the electric revolution

early.

Hyundai is also building on the

Ioniq 5 concept, there is a sedan

looming and a larger SUV in the

manufacturing process.

These are exciting times and

the Ioniq 5 is certainly one car to

be very excited about.

280 MAJOR HORNBROOK ROAD

Capturing expansive views that glide over the city towards the

Southern Alps, this fully renovated home's premiere position enjoys

a vista that's simply paradise.

This shining star has the ambience of a luxury resort with a focus on

contemporary style, design and comfort. With its natural outlook that

provides an ever-changing canvas, this substantial 256sqm home

features three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a clever

design that provides shelter from the easterly winds.

Positioned on an approx 700sqm flat section with drive-on access and

plenty of off-street parking, as well as an internal access double

garage. The upper level comprises three bedrooms, both master and

the guest bedroom with walk-in robe & ensuite.

On the lower level, we have an open plan kitchen, living and dining

that sprawls out to the outdoor living area.
