Arnold Clark has promised to deliver “market-leading car leasing deals” to businesses as part of its newly-launched free employee car plan solution Affinity Cars.
A product of the AM100 retail operation’s Arnold Clark Vehicle Management division, Affinity Cars allows businesses to sign up for the free service which delivers online access to a range of leasing offers.
The group said in a statement that the solution was “a great way for businesses to reward employees who aren’t eligible for a company car but still want to drive a new car every two or three years”.
Arnold Clark Vehicle Management managing director, David Cooper, said: “It’s a really exciting time for Arnold Clark Vehicle Management to bring such an innovative new product to the market.”
Arnold Clark acknowledged in a statement for the Vehicle Management operation that leasing is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to buying a car due to its financial benefits.
Employees who receive a cash allowance for the vehicle requirements will take out a personal car lease as part of the Affinity Cars solution.
Arnold Clark Vehicle Management asserted that customers “don’t need to visit a showroom” as the process can be completed wholly online.
Cooper added: “The automotive industry is evolving and we’re proud to be blazing a trail with the launch of Affinity Cars.”
