Two more lucky Motus customers each bagged R100 000 as part of the listed group’s rebranding of former Imperial Select used car dealers into Motus dealerships.
Imperial Select was recently renamed Motus Select, and as part of the rebranding, customers who bought vehicles from Motus Select dealerships from December 2020 to February 2021 were automatically entered into a monthly draw for a chance to win one of three R100 000 cash prizes.
The first of the three winners, a Mr Hartley, bought a Suzuki Celerio from Motus Select in Brackenfell, Cape Town during December 2020.
As luck would have it, the second winner also bought a car from Motus Select Brackenfell, one of five Motus Select dealers in the Western Cape. Michael Becker’s name was drawn from hundreds of Motus Select customers who purchased vehicles during the month of January. He bought a Renault Sandero Stepway and said he would be using the cash windfall to pay off his student loan and invest the remainder.
The third and final winner of R100 000 was Monique Delport, who bought a Renault Kwid with only some 8 000km on the clock from Motus Select in Edenvale, Johannesburg in February.
“When they called me, I thought it was a hoax, winning R100 000 was a huge surprise and the cherry on top of an already pleasant experience,” Delport said.
Motus last year launched motusselect.co.za, which gives online shoppers access to more than 1 500 cars at 22 Motus dealers in five of South Africa’s provinces.
The Eastern Cape will benefit from a major expansion drive by Mahindra in the province with three new dealerships waiting in the wings.
Volvo Trucks & Buses Johannesburg scooped up the top award as the 2023 Mega Dealer of the Year during the truck manufacturer’s Dealer of the Year awards.
