First significant delivery volumes are expected to begin in the first half of 2024 and continue throughout the year, according to the car manufacturer’s press release. Ayvens could add up to 500,000 Stellantis vehicles to its European leasing fleet by 2026. Specific order quantities and delivery dates beyond the volume already planned for 2024 can be flexibly agreed between the two companies, taking into account fleet requirements and demand.

“Stellantis vehicles will cover a wide range of iconic brands, vehicle classes and powertrain types to support the gradual transition of Ayvens’ customer base towards more sustainable mobility,” the letter states. The partners leave the share of electric vehicles unspecified, but with the focus on sustainable mobility, their share is likely to increase with the individual orders from the framework agreement.

Officially, Ayvens will have access to models from brands such as Alfa Romeo, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall – in other words, virtually the Group’s entire European passenger car range. The orders will also cover all vehicle classes, from city cars to SUVs and vans. The latter also come as seven- and nine-seaters; these models are aimed at professional providers of passenger transport. And: they are also sold in electric versions.

Ayvens was created in 2023 with the acquisition of LeasePlan by ALD Automotive, one of the world’s leading fleet management and mobility companies. Ayvens is a multi-brand and multi-channel vehicle leasing provider that primarily targets business and private customers and SMEs, according to the founding companies.

For Stellantis, this is the second significant order in just a few weeks. In mid-January, the multi-brand Group reportedly signed a framework agreement with the German car hire company Sixt. This gives Sixt access to up to 250,000 Stellantis brand vehicles, including electric vehicles. As with the Ayvens deal, no specific electric share was mentioned for Sixt.

“With our renowned and electrified brands, we offer a vehicle tailored to meet every need, budget and lifestyle,” says Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. “This collaboration empowers both current and prospective Stellantis brand customers to experience our latest innovations first-hand, from advanced propulsion to seamless connectivity and unparalleled comfort.”

“This commercial partnership will allow us to work closely together with Stellantis to ensure more competitive pricing for our clients and perfectly illustrates our capacity to leverage our new scale and buying power to achieve better value and synergies for all of our stakeholders,” adds Tim Albertsen, CEO of Ayvens. The mobility industry is structurally a high-growth market which is underpinned by clients’ shifting from ownership to usership, their requirement for full-service leasing solutions, their need for visibility over their costs and their commitment to reduce their carbon footprint.”
