The company mentions, "The benefits of leasing to the customers include total convenience, lower or no down payment, zero risk on resale value of the vehicle and a fixed EMI inclusive of maintenance cost. As a result, leasing is gaining increasing acceptance in the market and offers greater convenience compared to actually owning a car. It also makes the entry easier with no initial down payment. Customers also have the flexibility to upgrade their models. Once the lease scheme is over, the person can return the vehicle to the company without the hassle of reselling it, and get a new vehicle."
The leased vehicle will be available for period of up to 5 years depending on the city and model selected, states Mahindra and Mahindra
In its first phase, Mahindra has launched the scheme in Pune, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi. The leased vehicle will be available for period of up to 5 years depending on the city and model selected, mentions the company. The second phase will see the addition of the above mentioned vehicles along with extending the program to 19 more cities across India. The lease services will cover insurance, end to end maintenance, on road assistance, accidental repairs, 24 hours replacement vehicle, etc.
"Our leasing model is a category creating product offering, a 'no-worry' experience for customers who prefer convenience over ownership. It aims to bring a new class of customers, including professionals, small businessmen and millennials, into the M&M car experience who were waiting on the side-lines. Going forward, I am confident that leasing will gain more currency and the penetration levels will move in line with global trends, commented V S Parthasarathy, Group CFO & Group CIO, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd
