Experian Automotive announces industry’s first product to help successfully address the rapid influx of vehicles coming off lease

New Vehicle Lease Maturity Report(TM) provides insight into when, where and which vehicles are returning to market

Schaumburg, Ill., Feb. 25, 2016Experian Automotive today announced a new report that provides key information on vehicles that will be coming off lease. The first of its kind, the Vehicle Lease Maturity Report(TM) enables industry professionals to analyze vehicle inventory proactively and be more strategic in all aspects of the leasing market.

“Lease rates have continued to rise and set record highs. However, the result is an influx of late-model off-lease vehicles. In fact, lease maturities are expected to reach 3.1 million vehicles in 2016, which is up from 2.3 million last year,” said Melinda Zabritski, senior director of Automotive Finance for Experian. “We designed the new report to help industry professionals understand how many vehicles will be coming off lease by make, model and geography. This type of information helps to manage everything from inventory, resource allocations, incentives and valuations to overall marketing execution.”

The Vehicle Lease Maturity Report provides insight on the vehicles returning to market by year, make and model at a DMA or ZIP Code(TM) level. By leveraging Experian’s data resources, including vehicle lease registrations, the Vehicle Lease Maturity Report provides insight on the vehicles coming off lease. This level of detail allows users to better understand the impact these vehicles will have on the used vehicle market.

Experian® will discuss the leasing market and other auto finance trends in our quarterly State of the Automotive Finance Market Webinar on March 3.
