Domestic Makers Place More Competitive Pressure on Foreign Car-Lease Brands

The largest online car leasing marketplace in North America, Swapalease.com analyzed current inventory levels for today’s most popular car brands and compared it to inventory levels in 2010. Lexus, Land Rover and Jaguar, all popular car leasing brands, have seen their inventory fall over the last few years. Lexus has faced increased lease competition while Land Rover and Jaguar changed lease companies. Increased sales activity at retail today should push Lexus levels back up in the future. A few additional notes of interest:
 

  • Most likely a result of increased overall lease activity, Buick has seen the largest rise in inventory, up 87% since 2010 levels. Other domestic brands such as Jeep (52%), Ford (27%) and Cadillac (4%) have all seen inventory levels increase since 2010.
  • The domestic makers have placed more competitive pressure on foreign car-lease brands, such as Mercedes-Benz (-10%), Infiniti (-18%) and BMW (-29%). All three have seen inventory levels slip in the Swapalease.com marketplace.
