Introducing IMPERIAL AUTO

Our story dates back to 1947, with the opening of a motor dealership in downtown Johannesburg that became the first building block in the IMPERIAL Group. Our group now employs over 51 000 people and has the largest network of motor dealerships in South Africa, representing all the country’s major vehicle brands.

Our original dealership also laid the foundation for IMPERIAL AUTOMOTIVE retail division – now known as IMPERIAL AUTO.

Today, IMPERIAL AUTO's activities incorporate the sale of new and used vehicles, finance and insurance as well as parts and servicing for passenger and commercial vehicles.

As a decentralised organisation, we take great pride in our entrepreneurial spirit and remain true to our vision: to delight our customers in all that we do.

The list below provides you with an overview of all the brands we retail within our Passenger and Commercial divisions.

Support Initiatives

NOMADS GOLF

IMPERIAL AUTO is a proud national sponsor of the Nomads Golfers. The Nomads comprises 12 regional clubs in South Africa and, in typical nomadic fashion, the Nomads golfers move from golf club to golf club within their region rather than playing at the same club each month.

All the nomads share a common objective: the furtherance of golf through support for ladies’, disabled and junior golf. And, of course, supporting those less fortunate than others through the Nomads National Andrew Mentis Endowment Fund.
