For those who are keen to use a Mercedes-Benz, but do not want to be tied down by traditional ownership commitments, Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia (MBSM) now offers a new, zero downpayment financing solution, ‘Lease2Go’.

The operating lease option not only allows prospective customers to drive their preferred Mercedes-Benz models, it also allows them to upgrade to the latest models in the future. Customers will be able to 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.

Furthermore, costs such as the vehicle’s insurance premium and road tax are all included into the fixed monthly lease with Lease2Go. Tyre and rim coverage as well as 24/7 roadside assistance are also part of the package to provide further peace-of-mind ownership. Accounting-wise, the car legally belongs to the leasing company thus it remains off the books of the company that is leasing the car.

Those who are interested in the Lease2Go scheme will need to provide a two-month security deposit (refundable) and a one-month lease rental upfront. After that, they will only need to pay the monthly lease amount for the period the car is used, as stipulated in the agreed lease tenure. At the end of the lease period, the car will be returned, and customers can opt to upgrade to another Mercedes-Benz model of their choosing. Keep in mind that servicing costs will be borne by the customer.

“Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia 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 commitments to give our customers peace of mind, and make it as easy as ever to enjoy driving and upgrading their Mercedes-Benz cars,” said Mike Ponnaz, managing director of MBSM.

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