Motus is South Africa’s leading automotive group, employing over 18 600 people. It is a diversified (non-manufacturing) business in the automotive sector with unrivalled scale and scope in South Africa, and a selected international presence, primarily in the United Kingdom (“UK”), Australia and limited presence in South East Asia, and Southern and East Africa.
Motus traces its roots back to 1948, when its founding company Imperial Holdings started as a humble motor dealership in downtown Johannesburg. Motus Holdings Limited (“Motus”) was listed on the JSE in November 2018, following its unbundling from Imperial Holdings Limited.
Motus offers a differentiated value proposition to original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), 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, Motor-Related Financial Services and Aftermarket Parts.
Motus has long-standing importer and retail partnerships with leading OEMs, 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.
