Car subscription, also known as car leasing, is an alternative to traditional car ownership. It comprises various vehicle models and types, allowing customers to switch between different cars based on their needs and preferences. It offers individuals the opportunity to drive a vehicle without the long-term commitment or the financial burden of buying or leasing a car. It also allows customers to pay a monthly fee to access a fleet of vehicles, which covers the cost of the car, insurance, maintenance, and roadside assistance.

Global Car Subscription Market Report

At present, the growing demand for car subscription services, as they offer a convenient and flexible alternative to traditional car ownership, is offering a favorable market outlook. Besides this, subscribers can enjoy the benefits of having a car without the maintenance hassles and upfront costs associated with purchasing or leasing a vehicle. They can also typically choose the duration of their subscription and have the option to switch between different vehicle models as per their changing needs, which is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the rising demand for car subscriptions bundles the cost of vehicle ownership, such as insurance, maintenance, and depreciation, into a single monthly fee. This can be more cost-effective for individuals who do not want to bear the expenses of car ownership or those who prefer predictable monthly expenses.

Car Subscription Market Trends/Drivers:

Access to a variety of vehicles

Car subscription services provide subscribers with access to a diverse range of vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, luxury cars, and electric vehicles (EVs). This allows individuals to experience different car models and switch between them as desired, depending on their needs or preferences. It caters to those who appreciate variety and wish to drive different types of vehicles without the commitment of ownership. Moreover, subscribers can simply select a vehicle through an app or website that can be delivered to their doorstep. This convenience appeals to individuals who prefer a hassle-free transportation option without the responsibilities of ownership. In addition, car subscription services often provide access to the latest vehicle models equipped with advanced technologies and features.

Changing attitudes of individuals towards ownership of vehicles

Consumer attitudes toward car ownership are evolving. Younger generations, such as millennials and Gen Z, are showing preferences for access different vehicle over their ownership. They value experience and convenience over the responsibility and costs associated with owning a car. Car subscriptions align with this mindset, offering a more flexible and hassle-free solution. Moreover, traditional car ownership comes with several responsibilities, hence people are becoming more inclined to view cars as a service rather than a long-term commitment. In addition, subscribers can choose the duration of their subscription, ranging from a few months to a year or longer, depending on the provider.

Technological advancements in the automotive sector

Technology is playing a significant role in car subscription services, enabling users to complete the entire process online. Mobile applications and online platforms make it easier for individuals to browse available vehicles, compare subscription plans, and sign up for services. Additionally, there is a rise in the demand for connected cars and telematics systems enabling car subscription providers to offer features like remote diagnostics, tracking, and personalized settings, enhancing the overall customer experience. Car subscription services also provide advanced connectivity features, such as built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration, to deliver subscribers with access to connected features, entertainment systems, and navigation services.

Breakup by Service Providers:

Car Subscription Market

Independent/third party service provider dominates the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the service providers. This includes OEMs and captives and independent/third party service provider. According to the report, independent/third party service provider represented the largest segment.

Independent/third party service providers are not limited to a single brand or manufacturer, allowing them to offer a wide range of vehicle options from various manufacturers. This gives customers greater flexibility in choosing the car that best suits their needs, preferences, and budget. Since independent/third party service providers are not tied to any specific brand, they can offer unbiased recommendations based on the requirements of customers. Their goal is to find the right vehicle for the customer, rather than pushing a specific brand or model.

Breakup by Vehicle Type:

  • IC Powered Vehicle
  • Electric Vehicle
     

IC powered vehicle holds the biggest market share

A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the vehicle type has also been provided in the report. This includes IC powdered vehicle and electric vehicle. According to the report, IC powered vehicle accounted for the largest market share as people are more familiar with its operation, maintenance, and overall driving experience. Moreover, the infrastructure for IC powered vehicles is well-established in most regions, such as gas stations are abundant, making it convenient for drivers to refuel their vehicles. In addition, IC powered vehicles generally offer longer driving ranges compared to electric vehicles (EVs) and have shorter refueling times. This makes them more suitable for long-distance travel or for individuals who require a vehicle with extended range capabilities.

6 to 12 months account for the majority of the market share

According to the report, 6 to 12 months accounted for the largest market share as a shorter subscription period allows customers to have greater flexibility and adaptability. They can switch to a different vehicle or service provider sooner if their needs change or if they want to try out different cars. It provides an opportunity to experience various models and make adjustments based on personal preferences or changing circumstances. Moreover, opting for a shorter subscription period reduces the commitment level and gives customers the freedom to explore alternative options more frequently.

This predictable, fixed cost structure allows for better budgeting and cost control. Moreover, companies can choose from a wide range of vehicles and switch between models as per their needs. This flexibility allows businesses to adapt to changing requirements, such as different types of projects or client demands. Additionally, car subscriptions often have shorter terms compared to traditional leases, enabling companies to adjust their fleet size or composition more easily.
