What a year this has turned out to be for the SA motor industry. Recovery from the Covid-induced domestic market collapse of 2020 has been robust. Exports have rebounded even better. A new motor industry policy was introduced on July 1 – the same day that motor companies and their dealers ordered to cede serve service and maintain work to independent workshops. Government finally announced its intention to encourage the manufacture and sale of electric vehicles (EVs). Movement towards a Pan-African free trade offered new opportunities for vehicle and components manufacturers. And Ford announced the biggest single investment in the history of the local industry. Too much to take in at once? Don’t despair. The Financial Mail’s 2021 Motor Industry Annual will make sense of it all.
