New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses – that of the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life. The country’s varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand’s capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.
As the boys defend our nation’s title, Uber New Zealand wants to give all the loyal supporters at home something special and make sure the next generation have what they need to achieve their dreams. For a limited time, Uber New Zealand is introducing the definition of riding in style, UberBLACK, in partnership with Hyundai. Available for all your business needs, date nights and celebratory requirements for the next seven weekends, so you can arrive with confidence and leave in style. By riding with UberBLACK you will be supporting our nation’s future stars, with 10% of every trip going towards KidsCan’s mission to help give disadvantaged Kiwi kids the opportunity to recognise their dreams. UberBLACK is the the original version of Uber and the pinnacle of riding in style. Uber New Zealand has partnered with Hyundai, so you can request a brand new 2015 Hyundai Genesis to take you to your front row seat or a night celebrating on the town. When you open the Uber app in Auckland between Friday 18th September and Saturday 1st November, you will see a new option on the slider, UberBLACK, right beside UberX and UberXL. Slide across between 12pm and 12am, Thursday – Saturday, and request just before you are ready to ride!
