LEASYS’S EXPANSION IN EUROPE CONTINUES WITH GREECE
Rome, 26 April 2021
After attaining leadership in long-term rental in Italy, Leasys continues to pursue its growth plans in Europe, announcing the opening of a new branch in Greece. With its entry into the Greek market, which recently announced the reopening to European tourists from mid-May, the Company, a Stellantis brand and a subsidiary of FCA Bank, carries on the internationalization process started in 2017, which will lead Leasys to be operational in 12 European countries by 2021.
Thus, Greece becomes the eleventh market in which Leasys is operational, together with Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Spain. Leader of the Greek branch, based in Athens, will be Dionisis Xanthakos (reporting to Alberto Grippo, CEO of Leasys SpA), who will be tasked with taking business opportunities in a country whose car market has returned to pre-pandemic levels, and where the long-term rental sector currently has a 17% share, ready to face the challenges of new mobility, particularly in the hybrid and electric areas.
Leasys will bring its "from one minute to a lifetime" solutions also to Greece, involving the country in the sustainable mobility revolution that will materialize, on the one hand, in the electrification of the fleet and in the extension of the network of Leasys Mobility Stores (by 2022 there will be 1,500 across Europe) and, on the other, in the offering of cutting-edge, green and digital services.
With the arrival on the Greek market, Leasys launches the following offers: FIAT500 1.0 HYBRID 70HP POP at €174.00 per month/excluding VAT, with an advance payment of €2,500 and Jeep 1.0 Gse T3 120hp - S&S Sport FWD at €242.00 per month/ excluding VAT with an advance payment of €3,500, in both cases for 48 months and 20,000 km.
At a time such as this, characterized by cautious optimism and hope for a gradual recovery of the rental market, entry into the Greek market is an important step", said Alberto Grippo, CEO of Leasys. "Not only with a view to strengthening our international positioning, but also to position ourselves as protagonists of eco-sustainable mobility in a country like Greece, which holds much promise in this respect.“
