Skoda has launched ‘Clever Lease’ program for customers in India. The newly launched lease scheme will be available on the company’s Rapid and Superb models, with monthly rentals starting from as low as Rs 22,850.

It’ll be launched in other parts of the country in the coming months as part of Skoda’s INDIA 2.0 project.
For its lease services, Skoda has joined hands with Orix Auto, which has launched similar programmes with Volkswagen and Honda recently. Under the new lease scheme, customers can select from three plans – Wet, Dry, and Plain. The Wet plan includes the insurance, periodic maintenance, value-added services and accident repairs. In the Dry plan, insurance and accident repairs are included but maintenance and value-added services aren’t, while in the Plain plan, only the car’s lease rentals are covered. Everything else has to be taken care of by the lessee.
