In the year 2000, the original holding company of Market Square Volkswagen, Kelston Motors, incorporated Dirk Ellis Motors onto its stable and The NEW Kelston Motor Group was re-launched in the motor industry.

The Kelston Motor Group boasts one of the largest footprints in the Eastern Cape and employs more than 395 people (including B & M Autoworld staff), having employed less than 30 in the year 2000. The Group has grown consistently over the past thirteen years, having started with a small team of very passionate and dedicated people with years of experience in the motor industry.

The Kelston Motor Group is geared to deliver and service clients anywhere in the country, but especially in the Eastern Cape, with four of our dealerships out of eight based in the province. Our key focus is to champion Customer Satisfaction and to make sure that our customers are satisfied and happy people.
