About Motus

Our brand:

Motus Group is South Africa’s leading automotive group, employing over 16 700 people. 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 started as a humble motor dealership in downtown Johannesburg, Barney’s Super Service Station. Motus Holdings Limited (“Motus”) was listed on the JSE in November 2018, following the unbundling from Imperial Holdings Limited.
 
We are renowned for our long-standing importer and retail partnerships with leading automotive manufacturers. Our nationwide footprint of strategically located dealerships in growing urban areas underpins our leading market share. We represent 28 vehicle brands and 6 commercial vehicle brands through 23 OEM's in 340 vehicle dealerships. Read more on Motus.

Who is motus.cars?

Motus intended on shaking up the new and pre-owned car buying experience with the launch of motus.cars in November 2020. This website ties together all the Motus business entities in one digital location, simplifying the online shopping experience considerably. motus.cars is not only a recognisable URL, but it’s also the digital brand for the Motus Retail Division.

We also offer a host of other functionalities such as the ability to apply for finance and a regularly-updated blog featuring the latest news and reviews from independent automotive experts.

Another useful filter for you, the more discerning car shopper, is to search by car features, making it easier to find your dream car. You can even apply for finance online, with finance applications sent to all major banks ensuring that you get the best deal in terms of repayments and interest rates.
