Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia introduces ‘Lease2Go’ option

Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MBSM) has introduced “Lease2Go”, its latest financing solution as the local unit of the German carmaker seeks to boost its customer base.

“Lease2Go” allows Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to purchase their Mercedes-Benz vehicles and upgrade to the latest models with ease later.

“MBSM is constantly developing new ways to translate our customers’ needs into relevant and innovative financing solutions. ‘Lease2Go’ is another perfect example of innovative and flexible solutions we offer customers in Malaysia.

“When you think of ‘Lease2Go’, think simplicity. We are removing all the unnecessary ownership commit- ments to give our customers peace of mind, and make it as easy as ever to enjoy driving and upgrading their Mercedes-Benz cars,” said MBSM MD Mike Ponnaz.

With “Lease2Go”, customers can customise their lease packages by selecting a preferred lease tenure (one to four years) and anticipated mileage usage (20,000, 25,000 or 30,000 km) per year.

“Lease2Go” also conveniently packages all costs, like insurance premium and road tax, into a fixed monthly lease.

Customers who opt for “Lease2Go” will begin their financing with a two-month refundable security deposit, and a one-month lease rental upfront.

After this initial set-up, the customers only pay for the duration that the car is used, based on the agreed lease tenure.

At the end of the lease period, the car will be returned and the customer has an opportunity to upgrade to another Mercedes-Benz model through “Lease2Go”.

Keep in mind that servicing costs will be borne by the customer.

The company, in a statement, said tyre and rim coverage is also included in the “Lease2Go” package, besides 24/7 roadside assistance.

“By developing a financing solution focused on usership, we have created another easy way for our customers to fully immerse themselves in theMercedes-Benz experience.

“The zero commitment of ownership feature is also an advantage, particularly for companies, as it translates into an off balance sheet item.

“Customers are also protected against the risk of asset depreciation and the hassle of disposing their vehicles,” Ponnaz said.

MBSM is confident the competitive lease payments as well as the simple to understand and user-friendly nature of “Lease2Go” meets the evolving needs of its growing fan-base in the country.

MBSM was established in July 2012. It offers its financing and insurance services for Mercedes-Benz and Fuso vehicles. — TMR
