Alicante, March 9, 2021
Leasys continues its internationalization process, driven by the mobility of the future. The company, a Stellantis brand and a subsidiary of FCA Bank, already a market leader in Italy and ranked among the top 6 long term rental players in Europe, has opened its first Spanish Leasys Mobility Store in Alicante airport, a physical point of sale where customers can access such innovative products as short/medium/long-term rental and electric mobility.
Mobility Stores are physical points of sale where customers can learn more, with the support of specialized consultants, about all of Leasys' rental solutions "from one minute to a lifetime" and recharge their electric vehicles. In Italy, there are already more than 400 stores in major cities, airports, ports and train stations, for a total of 1,200 new electric vehicle charging stations.
The opening of the first Leasys Mobility Store in Alicante airport - soon to be followed by more than 50 new locations in many other cities, including Madrid, Barcelona and Seville - is an important new milestone for Leasys Spain, which began operations in 2017 with the launch of Be Free, the most flexible long-term rental solution for individuals. Subsequently, in March 2020, Leasys Spain consolidated its standing in the country, positioning itself among the top ten car rental providers with the acquisition of Drivalia Car Rental, one of the most dynamic short-term rental companies.
In keeping with the pioneering nature of Leasys mobility, the Stores have been designed with technological innovation in mind, with interactive digital solutions and multimedia totems that help customers to learn more about the mobility products offered by Leasys. By the end of the summer new short term rental services will be launched together with the opening of many other Leasys Mobility Stores.
By the end of 2022, there will be 1,500 stores operating in the five main European markets (Italy, France, United Kingdom, Spain and Germany), for a total fleet of more than 450,000 vehicles, including 20,000 in Spain. In addition, Leasys, which is present in ten European countries, intends to expand its presence to three more by the end of 2021.
"We are proud of the opening of our first Leasys Mobility Store in Spain. This is a key step in our expansion strategy in Spain, which will further strengthen our leadership in 360-degree rental services in Europe" said Giacomo Carelli, CEO of FCA Bank and Leasys Chairman.
"It clearly shows our firm commitment to mobility and electrification. The mobility needs of all citizens are changing, the way they hire and their priorities. Our strategy of opening Leasys Mobility Store centers responds to this new mobility that is now electric, flexible, individual, safe and digital." added Raul Garcia, Country Manager Leasys and Leasys Rent Spain.
