The Assist247 directory provides a comprehensive listing of automotive manufacturers in South Africa to meet all your motoring needs and desires. The automobile industry accounts for 10% of South Africa’s manufactured exports, contributes to 7.5% of the country’s GDP and employs 36 000 people. Despite the recession, South Africa boasts one of the best performing markets for automobile manufacturers in the world, alongside China, India and Russia.
Historically, automotive manufacturing characterised the 20th century; the production of the very first affordable automobile, the model T Ford, changed the way we think about the world to such an extent that a car is now a must-have for every relatively affluent individual. All the major automotive manufacturers have invested in South Africa providing consumers and businesses with an extensive range of high-quality cars and automobile components to choose from.
Owing to rising oil prices and competition, automotive manufacturers are presently experiencing a downturn in sales. However, this is paving the way for emerging markets like South Africa to offer more economical and competitive vehicle deals. In fact, South Africa’s automotive manufacturers have performed tremendously in the last ten years; annual vehicle exports increased by over 150 000 units in ten years from 1997 to 2007. Local sales also increased tremendously from 2004 onwards, with 650 000 units being sold in 2006 generating a profit of over R100 billion for the country.
