List of Uber Approved Cars in Johannesburg, South Africa (90 Vehicles)

 

 

Are you at the point where you want to buy a car for Uber, but can’t seem to get the list of approved Uber vehicles? In response to numerous requests for the List of Uber cars (UberX, UberVAN and Uber Black) in Johannesburg, South Africa, we put together an unofficial master list  containing 90 Uber approved vehicles in Johannesburg,South Africa.

The list below contains the following – Uber Approved Service, Make, and Model of the Vehicle. For some of the data we marked it as N/A – meaning we could not find it, or it does not exist! Assume all cars listed in the table below, as at the time of this posting to be at most 4 years old (in order to be approved for Uber use)- I.e. For any car on this list to be approved, they need to be a 2012 model or newer.

Note – if a car is approved for Uber Black, it is generally automatically approved to make UberX pickups (if the driver desires). For Uber Johannesburg, South Africa note the key difference(s) between UberX, UberVAN and Uber Black:

  1. Hi, an employee at Uber did not want to register my car ( Renault Duster) because he says it is an SUV. But it is not- it is also on your list of Uber Approved cars in Johannesburg. Can I get a confirmation email from you please so I can take it to Uber.

    1. You can book an uber in advance with our app Kommen (www.trykommen.com) or with your Uber app (depending on if scheduling is available in your location).

    1. Hatchbacks are generally not accepted. However,you can contact your local Uber to verify if it is approved for your city

  4. Hi I recently registered to add a car on the Uber platform. I haven’t received any confirmation via email or any way. I tried checking via the Uber waiting list but I got a response saying “the form does not accept responses anymore”. Can you please confirm if this is an error or there’s another channel to use to make sure I’m on the waiting list. Thanks

    1. Per your question, I think your best bet is to go into your local Uber office and make your issue known.

  8. Good Day.

    I`m thinking of becoming an Uber driver. I currently own a Mercedes Benz C-Class, (W204 08` C220 CDI). Does that qualify and if at all, would it fall under Uber Black or UberX?
    The list of accepted vehicles is a bit controversial to me

    Many Thanks
    Vaz

        You say generally hatchbacks do not qualify, but you say a Renault clio is fine for uberx. I mean if a clio is good enough then surely an Audi A3, VW Golf or mercedes A class easily qualify?
