Scot Hall
Exec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent

Leas­ing has been tak­ing the hit on soft­en­ing used car prices by a num­ber of indus­try author­i­ties. While off-lease num­bers will be increas­ing this year and beyond, the blame has been over­stat­ed. Trade-ins will be see­ing near­ly five times the return vol­ume as leas­ing, with eight-to-nine mil­lion antic­i­pat­ed trade-ins and 2.1 mil­lion lease returns this year.

Leas­ing Will Account for Just 22.5% of Vehi­cles Com­ing Back in 2014:
Lease return vehi­cles (three years old) are actu­al­ly help­ing to fuel the CPO recov­ery.

It’s Easy These Days to Point a Fin­ger at Leas­ing with Falling Car Prices:
Sim­ply because there has been great resur­gence in lease deals since the reces­sion.

With New Vehi­cle Sales Jump­ing from 10M to 16M there’s Resur­gence All Around:
Dif­fi­cult to con­grat­u­late leas­ing on fuel­ing sales growth then also say it’s hurt­ing indus­try
by forc­ing falling prices.
