Purchase the Perfect ATV vehicle

Our ATV side-by-side vehicles (Electric & Petrol) are purpose-built for off-road traveling, designed specifically to be every farmer’s primary workhorse as well as for outdoor adventurers. Reliability and low maintenance are the name of the game and you need not look any further for the perfect side-by-side farm vehicle. Rugged, dependable, and powerful! And while the TUATARA is an ATV, it is more correctly a side by side ultra terrain vehicle (UTV) because the TUATARA will go where other ATVs won’t, and that’s a fact. The strength of the TUATARA is in its versatility, which also makes it ideal for beekeepers, hunters, agricultural contractors, horticulturists, and even for purely recreational use.

“New Zealand’s Best New ATV”

NZ's Best Side By Side ATV UTV All-Terrain Vehicle

Geoff Hill from Tuatara ATV explains the unique features of the vehicle.

ATV? UTV? Side-by-side? What’s the difference?

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are primarily designed for off-road use.
Ultra-terrain vehicles (UTVs) can handle even more challenging conditions.
And a side-by-side, or SXS, is an ATV with two or more seats, side by side.

So what’s the Tuatara? It’s all three: a side-by-side ATV with UTV vehicle capability.
Three times as tough and three times the fun!

Ultra Terrain Vehicle

The Low Maintenance ATV

The Tuatara has often been compared to the 1950s Land Rover or even the Willys Jeep, and we’re happy with those comparisons. In fact, in terms of where it will go, we’re sure that the Tuatara would be a match for either.

If it’s a steep climb to be tackled, there’s no need to get a run on. Just apply a low gear, and the Tuatara ATV vehicle will use its big fat high-grip tyres and differential lock on each axle, if needed, to casually climb to the top.

But it’s not just its capability and all-steel design that invites the comparison with these two off-road icons of the past. It’s also the simple engineering design of the Tuatara and its ease of access for servicing. You can do a lot of servicing or save big by taking the Tuatara straight to their local garage. There is no need to foot huge servicing and repair costs charged by the multi-national ATV suppliers.
