Pay per use/subscription and full-service automotive lease trends.
Subscription-based lending and pay-per-use is already established offering for some financiers, especially in the equipment leasing industry; however, it’s still a new trend for many others. The pay-per-use model will not be around the traditional approach and the asset alone – leasing companies will need to bundle more services around the asset to get profits the same way the software companies created various services and product addons around the main product they sell.
Big data cannot stay out of sight either when talking pay per-use. Today the data is there but hard to retrieve and use for gaining insights. Closer cooperation with manufacturers to get data for further analysis and use it to make the right decisions would be inevitable for their business. E.g., getting information on the average usage of the car, non-driving time, and information on the asset independently from the customer could help create the pay-per-use metrics. This is where Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions analyzing driver behavior could prove helpful.
Changing automotive leasing environment with more electric cars sold – having a challenge on the asset depreciation, leasing the asset for several times.
Dozens of countries, from the UK to France and Norway, plan to phase out the sale of engine-driven cars by 2040 or earlier. Problems calculating residual values, or future second-hand prices, keep electric leasing prices high. This is because there is little data to base them on, unlike traditional leasing, where dealers use mileage and service history to give a car a future second-hand value. Reducing the amount that electric vehicles depreciate is, therefore key to making predominantly expensive battery cars more accessible to consumers.
