Our Bureau. Mumbai | Updated on September 16, 2021

The new vertical ‘Quiklyz’ is aimed at building a nimble model

Mahindra and Mahindra Financial Services on Thursday announced its entry into the leasing and subscription business. “The new vertical would operate under the brand name Quiklyz,” it said in a statement.

Under the leasing and subscription model, consumers would pay a monthly fee to access the vehicle of their choice across all car brands, at a lower price point compared to regular car ownership.

“Corporate and businesses are also looking for alternate ways to have access to vehicles which can match their requirements without the burden of traditional ownership models,” the company noted in the statement.

Making it convenient for consumers

Ramesh Iyer, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Mahindra Finance said, “With Quiklyz, we aim to make the process of ownership convenient for our consumers both for individual and corporate segments alike.”

The company expects that the changing millennial mind-set, asset light business models, car scrappage policy, rapid vehicle launches by automotive OEMs, emergence of EVs and sharply reducing average holding period of new cars will accelerate leasing and subscription.
