All South African cars brands list
At drivingyourdream we bring you a complete list of South African car brands, since we study almost all car brands in the world. We're dedicated to low volume car brands and to offer free automotive design courses.
In 2016 we did the world largest list of all car brands in current production; maybe you didn't know how many car brands are there in the world, but there are currently more than 3.300, and now we try to keep it updated. It is a rather laborious work, of constant investigation, for which we greatly appreciate the collaboration of others, since it is hard for us to follow all sources of information.
South Africa has traditionally been the main player in the African automotive industry and now produces more than 500,000 vehicles of various types every year. South Africa is in the 21st position of the countries with a greater number of cars produced annually, and in the 16th place between countries with the highest number of local car brands.
Although trucks and military vehicles are being developed in the country, cars with foreign brand licenses are the mainstream.
The automobile industry in South Africa ranks third in the South African economic sector, after the financial sector and mining.
Thanks to trade agreements with the European Union and the Southern African Development Community, companies producing in South Africa can take advantage of low production costs and opportunities to enter new markets.
Today, major global manufacturers—including General Motors, Ford, Fiat, Diman Chrysler, BMW, Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen—are concentrated in the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, and KwaZulu-Natal.
