European auto major Volkswagen on Friday said it has partnered ORIX Auto Infrastructure Services for providing car leasing service in India. The partnership comprises retail leasing solution, which will offer a range of Volkswagen cars catering to start-up entrepreneurs, MSMEs, salaried individual and corporate professionals, the company said in a statement. The monthly lease rental for Volkswagen model range will start at Rs 17,647 and will be offered through the Corporate Business Centre (CBC) present in six metro cities -- Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, it said.
Gradually, the program will be extended to other CBCs as well in the country, it added. The company is offering customers car leasing from a minimum period of two years to a maximum period of four years. "With our partnership with ORIX, our customers will have the convenience and flexibility to drive premium mobility at a value for money proposition through a monthly rental," Volkswagen Passenger Cars Director Steffen Knapp said.
