Leasing at Daimler Mobility, using instead of owning: Leasing with the Mercedes-Benz Bank Group and Mercedes-Benz Financial Services enables real flexibility. With leasing, the customer pays for the use of the vehicle – in manageable leasing installments.
Daimler Mobility AG makes leasing more flexible than ever. When you lease a vehicle, you maintain your financial flexibility, yet still always drive a car that best meets your current needs. With leasing, you pay a monthly amount for the use of the vehicle. This amount is defined before you sign your leasing agreement.
Before the start of the leasing period, you estimate your annual mileage and decide how long you want to lease the car of your dreams. You can also reduce your monthly payment by making an initial payment at the beginning of your leasing agreement. Leasing periods generally range from 24 to 48 months. After the term is up, you return the vehicle, and you can lease a new model with a new agreement, which means you can benefit regularly from new technologies and design innovations.
Used-car leasing with new vehicle quality
Private and business customers who choose Daimler Mobility can lease new vehicles of all classes from Daimler AG — everything from cars and vans to trucks and buses. Daimler Mobility works closely with Daimler vehicle production units and a partner network of special vehicle-body manufacturers, and can therefore offer business customers complete leasing packages for special-purpose vehicles that have already been modified. These include vehicles that can be used by municipal and government authorities or put into service as rental vehicles.
Our subsidiary Athlon, which is one of Europe’s leading providers of vehicle leasing and fleet management services, has a fleet of passenger cars and vans from multiple brands available for leasing.Private, business, and fleet customers can also lease late-model used vehicles from Daimler Mobility for attractive monthly payments. These vehicles offer the quality of a new vehicle for lower monthly payments. You can also supplement your leasing agreement for your new or used vehicle by adding a wide range of services that include everything from automotive insurance to warranty and service components. In addition, Athlon offers fleet customers full-service leasing packages that include additional features especially designed for vehicles that are to be used as company cars.
New car purchases put a strain on the budgets of private households and also prevent companies from investing in other areas. When you lease a vehicle, you maintain your financial flexibility and can act accordingly.
The annual mileage, the leasing period for your vehicle, the initial payment, and thus the monthly payment are defined in your leasing agreement. You therefore know exactly how much you will need to pay each month. The leasing period, which is generally between two and four years, is defined in advance, thus giving you a reliable basis for planning.
A sporty coupe for singles and young couples, or a larger vehicle for families — not everyone wants to be pinned down, and sometimes it’s good that way. That’s not a problem when you lease, however, since you can change vehicles as you plan for your life and your family. The limited duration of leasing agreements enables you to react quickly to new circumstances.
Because you generally only keep a leased vehicle for a few years at most, you can benefit from the technological innovations that are constantly being incorporated into new vehicles. Whether it’s the latest drive system technology, safety features, or improvements to infotainment systems — when you lease, you’re always up to date with the latest developments.
Supplementing your leasing agreement with additional service components such as maintenance and warranty packages means never having to worry about anything when you’re on the road. That’s because our service packages cover all costs associated with inspections, vehicle servicing, and wear and tear. You can also take advantage of the insurance packages from Daimler Mobility to make sure you’re fully covered. The charges for services and insurance are included in your monthly leasing payment, which means you maintain a clear and transparent overview of all your costs. We also offer service leasing and insurance packages for used vehicles.
Daimler Mobility offers you carefree mileage leasing. When your leasing period ends, you return the vehicle to the leasing company, after which you can simply lease a new model with a new agreement. The leasing company is responsible for the resale of the vehicle, which means you don’t have to worry about the car’s residual value. What’s more, drove less than agreed at the beginning of your leasing agreement, we will refund part of your leasing costs. If you drove further than was agreed in the contract, a follow-up payment will be due.
Business owners and companies also benefit from leasing because tax laws allow them to deduct their monthly leasing payments as a business expense. The amount of any optional one-time payment you might make at the start of your leasing agreement can also be deducted in the year that you make the payment.
