Nissan increases customer convenience with SignatureFLEX lease

Published

on

Program offers lessees a streamlined option to purchase additional miles online or via mobile app

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan Motor Acceptance Company (NMAC) announced today it is offering a new leasing option that provides more convenient, flexible lease terms for its customers. SignatureFLEX provides drivers the opportunity to easily add miles during their lease contract if they are approaching or may exceed their mileage limit – providing flexibility for those who drive lower miles annually and helping avoid potential penalties at lease turn-in.

The program reflects changing consumer driving habits and an increased proportion of lower-mileage lease contracts for NMAC customers, offering flexibility for lessees who are driving less. Leases with 10,000-mile limits now account for the majority of new NMAC originations, compared to 12,000-miles previously.

“Our data clearly shows that Nissan customers are choosing lower mileage limits for their leases, so we’re providing a more convenient, more flexible way for them to manage their needs,” said Jim DeTrude, vice president, NMAC Sales & Marketing. “SignatureFLEX allows drivers to pay for only the mileage that they plan to use, while having peace of mind they can conveniently buy more miles if their driving habits change.”

Customers can purchase additional mileage at any time during their lease. Vehicles with compatible connected car technology will provide automatic, personalized notifications to drivers about their current and projected lease mileage. Additional miles can be purchased through the NMAC web portal or mobile app.

SignatureFLEX is available on all Nissan lease terms and mileage limits, including Nissan’s recently introduced ultra-low-mileage, 5,000-mile/36-month term. Following a limited launch with select models in late 2022, the SignatureFLEX option is now offered on all vehicles across the Nissan lineup, including the all-new, all-electric 2023 Ariya crossover. Additional program details are available on the NMAC web portal.

Electric vehicles helping drivers to reduce their bills

Published

on

  • 90% of vehicle-owning US households could reduce their bills as well as their carbon footprint by switching to electric vehicles. 
  • 85 million households could halve their transport bills by going electric compared to just 25 thousand households if they switched to newer, gasoline-fuelled cars. 
  • Adopting an electric vehicle would more than double the number of US households with low transport costs, spending less than 2% of their annual income on transport fuels. 

Newswise — Drivers in Washington, California, and New York are set to see the greatest reductions in transport costs and greenhouse gas emissions due to a combination of cleaner power grids and low electricity prices in comparison to gasoline prices, among other factors.  

Over 90% of vehicle-owning US households could slash their greenhouse gas emissions as well as their transport costs by switching to electric vehicles. A study maps the change in annual income spent on transport fuels for vehicle-owning US households upon adopting electric vehicles.  

US households are highly dependent on private vehicles, with over 80% of journeys taken via personal cars. These journeys are not only bad for the environment and public health, but they are also expensive: around 67% of US households are currently considered to have medium-to-high travel costs, spending greater than 2% of their annual income on transportation. 

“Joshua Newell, co-author of the study and Professor of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan, says: “As the need for decarbonisation becomes increasingly urgent, it is crucial that we identify where and how we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, starting with assessing the long-term affordability of electric vehicles. Our results show that not only are electric cars better at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but in most cases, they are cheaper to run too.” 

Study evaluates the cost-effectiveness of switching to electric vehicles in comparison to new gasoline-fuelled vehicles, for different regions across the United States. The results show that 71% of US drivers could halve their transport bills by going electric. In comparison, just 0.02% of drivers would see the same reduction in fuel costs by switching to newer, gasoline-fuelled cars. 

Moreover, the team found that adopting an electric vehicle would more than double the number of US households with low transport costs, spending less than 2% of their annual income on transport fuels. Nationwide, this equates to over 80% of vehicle-owning households. 

“Our research contributes to the topic of energy justice, ensuring participation in the energy system is equitable, affordable, and accessible for all. We are hopeful that this study will inform people on where significant, affordable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions can be made. For the majority of people, the ongoing fuel cost of electric vehicles will be even lower than adopting newer, more efficient gasoline vehicles. However, the prominent differences across the nation emphasize the need for a regional approach to electric vehicle transitions,” concludes Jesse Vega-Perkins, lead author of the study.
