As the official franchised local representative for MAN (Heavy commercial vehicles), HONDA (Passenger vehicles and motorcycles) and TATA (Light and heavy commercial vehicles) in Botswana, Commercial Motors remains an important and integral component of the Sefalana Group.
Commercial Motors started off with just a hand full of staff in 1998 with the objective of introducing the MAN and TATA range of vehicles to the Botswana market. Five years later in 2003, the entity took over the HONDA dealership in Botswana and became the official dealership of all three brands in the country, offering vehicle sales, parts and service.
The Company has impressive showrooms and workshops in the Broadhurst Industrial area of Gaborone and continues to offer its growing customer base a first-class service. Our dealership is now being relocated to a more suitable location with enhanced showrooms and improved visibility. This site is adjacent to our Group’s Head Office..
Commercial Motors historically placed its focus on supplying vehicles to Government through tenders placed in the market. This strategy worked well for the entity and has seen the business grow from just five staff members in 1998 to its current count of over 80 full time employees.
In the last few years, the entity shifted its focus from relying on tenders placed in the market and steered towards growing private sales as we noted a reduction in Government tenders. Through the use of latest technology, support from a well experienced management team and dealership principals in South Africa, Commercial Motors has succeeded to international service standards and extended its customer base.
