Saab cars will return to leasing from today (1 April, 2010) as the company looks to attract new customers under the ownership of Spyker Cars.
The option will be offered on all of the auto maker’s 2010 vehicles, Spyker chief executive Victor Muller and Saab North America president Mike Colleran told Dow Jones Newswires on the sidelines of the New York international auto show.
The report noted that Colleran had hinted last week Saab could make the leasing move as it looks to re-establish itself after being purchased by Spyker from General Motors earlier this year.
Leasing is good news for Saab dealers since the majority of their potential customers use the option. A new shipment of Saab vehicles from the company’s plant in Sweden – the first for US dealers in nine months – arrived this week. Shipments had stopped as GM decided the company’s fate.
