Volvo is definitely taking steps to embrace new systems more aggressively than some of the peers, and that trend even reaches the way the Swedish automaker will marketplace its vehicles to drivers.
The company officially released the particular terms for its previously announced Treatment by Volvo service, which offers customers an all-inclusive lease on the brand new XC40 compact SUV. While vehicle leases are nothing new, Volvo’s program is notable for exactly how similar it is to how wireless businesses sell expensive smartphones these days. Â
Care by Volvo will cost $600 a month on a two-year-long contract (before local taxes and fees, that will is) with a 15, 000-mile yearly allowance. There’s a clear incentive can be to upgrade to a new design after just 12 months, exactly like their smartphones, although it’s not apparent if they’ll only be able progress to the next version of the XC40 or even select another model. Â
The deal includes more than just a sparkly new SUV; the program will also provide lessees access to customer service and roadside assistance, maintenance, and wear-and-tear substitutes for stuff like windshield wipers plus brakes. Most importantly, the Volvo may roll auto insurance coverage into the deal, with policies from Liberty Shared. Â
There’s also an option readily available for an extra $100 a month, which protrusions up the XC40 specs with functions like 20-inch wheels and a good enhanced sound system. Â
Customers may select their SUVs online, as well as the vehicles will make their way to ALL OF US showrooms next year. The XC40s may reach the first subscribers next springtime. Â
