Leasing provides the opportunity to the lessee, to terminate the lease whenever required and to obtain a model that is equipped with the latest technologies.

The reduction in fleet costs has also made it an easy and cost-effective mode for the firms to provide vehicles to their employees,” says Amey Vikram, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive services research.

However, in the case of leasing, the vehicle manufacturer's warranty typically covers the entire lease period. This ensures that any issues are taken care of without any additional expenses. In addition, road tax is also covered by the leasing company. SMEs avail self-transportation in a convenient and hassle-free manner would drive the global car leasing market during the forecast period.

Increased demand for new and luxury cars

Leasing cars is emerging as the most feasible way to own an aspired luxury car with least commitment and most importantly less upfront cash. The main factor which is driving the leasing market in the luxury car segment is the increased interest and preference of the millennials,” says Amey.
