Cockram Motors is the South Island’s largest Nissan and Kia dealer with a staff of over 30 dedicated, professional and passionate people.  We have a company history that dates back to being one of the original six Datsun dealers in New Zealand.

At Cockram Motors we offer the full range of new Nissan and Kia Passenger and Light Commercial vehicles and consistently achieve new vehicle targets – something that only occurs by a clear understanding of our clients needs.

We have an excellent range of over 100 vehicles – cars, commercials and the popular 4×4 recreational vehicles – ideal for the ski field, family, towing or just enjoying the lifestyle these vehicles offer.
