ALD Automotive launches corporate leasing for Tesla
ALD Automotive is now offering leasing services for Tesla in 16 European countries. Companies can take advantage of ALD Automotive’s full-service leasing packages for the Model 3, Model Y, Model S and Model X.
According to the leasing company, it is “Tesla’s preferred operating leasing partner throughout Europe”. ALD offers full-service leasing packages for companies and small to medium-sized businesses. In the short term, however, only the Model 3 and Model Y are available in practice – according to the Tesla configurator, the delivery deadline for the revised Model S and X is mid-2022.
In addition to the monthly instalment for the vehicle itself, the full-service lease covers tyre changes, roadside assistance, insurance and maintenance. For the latter, ALD Automotive mentions Tesla locations and mobile service in the announcement, but not independent workshops.
ALD Automotive does not specify the range of monthly rates for the full-service leasing of the four Tesla series in the communication, also referring to the flexible terms and mileages of the leasing. The full-service lease for commercial customers is not yet listed on the Tesla website. In the configurator, at the time of this article’s publication, there are still the familiar three options for business customers: bank transfer, business leasing and balloon loan – the latter two financing options are handled by Santander Consumer Bank.
The 16 countries are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In France, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands and Denmark, full-service leasing is also offered to private customers.
“We are proud to introduce this new and flexible leasing offer for Tesla’s electric vehicles to customers across Europe,” said John Saffrett, vice chairman of ALD Automotive. “This contributes to our sustainable growth strategy as a key player in the energy transition and supports our commitment to innovative mobility solutions.”
ALD Automotive is a subsidiary of the major French bank Société Générale. Worldwide, the company says it manages over 1.76 million vehicles in 43 countries. In the field of electric mobility, there is already a cooperation with Polestar, among others.
