Subscription tenure options range between 26, 36, and 48 months depending on customer requirement. Monthly subscription charge starts at Rs 15,479/- (including taxes) for Swift Lxi in Hyderabad, and Rs 15,354/- (including taxes) in Pune for a 48 month plan tenure.
MSIL enjoys complete market dominance and offers vehicles across a wide range of segments. With its brand outreach something to buy for, new finance plans would be a great way to foster its ever growing customer base. As car ownership dialogues change, and more people in the country up for lease options rather than outright purchases, a subscription plans such as this will in time gain popularity.
The new finance channel is best suited for customers who require a vehicle for a predetermined period of time, which is why it works brilliantly for corporate clients, who are usually posted to a new city frequently. Upon completion of subscription tenure, a customer could choose to upgrade, extend lease tenure, or purchase the vehicle at market price.
