Trade in request – CFAO Motors (Zambia)

CFAO Motors (Zambia) Ltd formerly Toyota Zambia Ltd. is the official dealer for Toyota vehicles and distributors for Toyota genuine parts and provides quality aftersales service across Zambia. Our branches are in Lusaka, Kitwe, Livingstone and Solwezi.

Further it has appointed independent Zambian companies as Authorized Service Centers in Mkushi, Kabwe, Kasama and Chipata. A Team Toyota garage was also appointed in Makeni Lusaka.

The company has been in existence since the 3rd of December 1963 when it was registered as Mobile Motors NR a member of the Lonrho Group of Companies, specializing in the trade of Motor Vehicles, Spare Parts and After Sales Service. And since then, has been a reliable and renowned dealer of motor vehicles in Zambia.

CFAO Motors (Zambia) Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of CFAO. CFAO was formed in 1852 and is present in 40 Countries in Africa and has a diverse portfolio ranging from Mobility, Infrastructure, Consumer and Health care products.

In 2012, Toyota Tsusho Corporation acquired a 97% stake in CFAO, and in 2016 CFAO was delisted and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Tsusho Corporation. To gain from efficiencies arising from the merger of TTC and CFAO at a global scale, TTC transferred its African assets, Toyota Zambia included to CFAO.

This has enabled the company to take on other brands such as LOXEA and many more that are yet to come. However, Toyota remains as our premium brand as Zambia Drives Toyota.
