Car Leasing Is A Cost-Effective Alternative For Post-COVID Motoring
As lockdown restrictions are gradually eased, the UK is starting to get back to business. In the automotive industry the ‘new normal’ is seeing plenty of change, but in reality, this is nothing new. Automotive manufacturers and marketers are used to a changing landscape, and even before the pandemic changed everything they were navigating a market moving towards car sharing, driverless cars and electric vehicles. These are huge shifts in manufacturing and consumer trends and the COVID pandemic has merely accelerated these patterns, but the easing of lockdown may also see an upsurge in car leasing as motorists weigh up their options to suit the new circumstances.
It is usually quite easy to see where the automotive industry is heading, and the move to car leasing over ownership is making more and more sense as we move gradually into a post-COVID world. People are further digitising the browsing and ordering processes and along with other factors, that can only help car leasing become the accepted way of securing the vehicle you want to drive.
Car leasing creates a post-COVID safe zone
With concerns over using public transport due to the threat of transmitting the virus, the motor car has become one of the ‘safe zones’ that people are turning to and are much more comfortable with. More people are looking to drive now than use other modes of transport. Of the 40% of the UK population that use public transport, 43% have now said they will change to another mode of transport post-COVID, according to a recent Google survey. For the majority this will mean the motor car.
Financial uncertainty over both the wider economy and our own job security and personal finances, means people are less inclined to purchase a car and make a long term financial commitment, and one which deteriorates in value. And so car leasing is again presenting itself as a leading alternative and a cost-effective means of motoring. With deals tailored to personal circumstances or to the fleet budgets of businesses, in an uncertain financial climate car leasing is the sensible choice.
Increasingly, in a post-COVID environment, people are wanting to shop online, and with car leasing this can involve the entire process. From browsing and selection, doing the deal and delivering the car, Pink Car Leasing can offer an entirely ‘contactless’ experience. Digital showrooms are the future and our extensive support information and technical help can offer you everything you need, to help you make a selection and secure your dream motor vehicle.
Contactless browsing, selection and delivery with car leasing
With car leasing giving you the option of changing cars more often and therefore keeping up with emerging trends and new models, you will be more interested in online events and shows. These will become more and more common, as events cancelled so far in 2020 begin to realise they can now be carried out online and to an even bigger audience. Many manufacturers, such as Hyundai, are turning to live streaming for their product launches, and this is ideal for the car leasing consumer coming to the end of their deal and looking for the latest models.
More and more it appears that car leasing is the future model for motorists; for safe driving but also for safe browsing, easy selection and cost-efficient motoring. Car leasing gives you the flexibility, freedom and now the personal safety and comfort that you need. Welcome to the ‘new normal’.
