Motus is South Africa’s leading automotive group, employing over 16 000 people globally. We are a diversified (non-manufacturing) business in the automotive sector with unrivalled scale and scope in South Africa, a selected international presence primarily in the United Kingdom and Australia, as well as a limited presence in South East Asia and Southern and East Africa.
Motus traces its roots back to 1948, when its founding company Imperial Holdings Limited started as a single motor dealership in downtown Johannesburg. Motus was listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in November 2018, following its unbundling from Imperial Holdings Limited.
Motus offers a differentiated value proposition to Original Equipment Manufacturers, customers and business partners with a fully integrated business model across the automotive value chain through four key business segments namely: Import and Distribution, Retail and Rental, Financial Services and Aftermarket Parts.
Motus has long-standing importer and retail partnerships with leading Original Equipment Manufacturers, representing some of the world’s most recognisable brands. We provide automotive manufacturers with a highly effective route-to-market and a vital link between the brand and the customer throughout the vehicle ownership cycle. In addition, we provide motor-related financial services and the sale of accessories and aftermarket parts for out-of-warranty vehicles.
To be fair, accountable, driven and ensure that we operate in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner.
We create value for customers and build market share through relevant, innovative products and exceptional service at competitive prices. We deliver returns to shareholders through operational alignment, collaboration across the supply chain, and the reduction of complexity, duplication, expenses and capital employed, while mitigating currency risk.
Our progress and performance are delivered by a diverse complement of highly competent and experienced individuals and teams.
