Mazda Contract Hire launches sub-£200 rental rate

Mazda says corporate demand for the Mazda6 is set to accelerate with the model now available for £199+VAT monthly rental through Mazda Contract Hire.

The £10 per month improvement in monthly contract hire rates, compared with the final quarter of last year, is available to all business users until 31 March 2014 across the Mazda6 range thanks to a significant residual value enhancement.

In the last two months residual value forecasters at CAP Automotive have given the Mazda6, which was launched 12 months ago, an average three percentage point uplift to 34 percent across the range.

That  support for the Mazda6 range, the marque’s best-selling fleet model, has resulted in Mazda Contract Hire further improving lease rates across the line-up for the first quarter of 2014.

It means, for example, that on a standard industry payment profile of 6-0-35, the Mazda6 Saloon 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 150ps SE is available for just £199+VAT per month on a 10,000 miles per year, non-maintained package.

Mazda head of fleet Steve Tomlinson said: “Irrespective of which Mazda6 derivative businesses choose through Mazda Contract Hire they will benefit from an extremely competitive monthly rental.

“These improvements further strengthen Mazda6’s position at the forefront of the C/D segment in regard to contract hire rentals and this can only build on the sales momentum we are experiencing on the car, up 280 percent year on year, and deliver increased showroom traffic for our dealer network.

Tomlinson said: “Model waiting times can be a major issue for fleet managers and company car drivers. However, our production schedule and stocking policy means that any businesses that have an immediate vehicle requirement should contact Mazda as models can typically be delivered within two weeks.”
