This offering has been designed at an extremely attractive monthly lease rental starting at Rs. 13,499/- per month for KUV100NXT and Rs. 32,999 per month for XUV500.
The benefits of leasing to the customers include total convenience, lower or no down payment, zero risk on resale value of the vehicle and a fixed EMI inclusive of maintenance cost.

Our Leasing model is a category creating product offering, a ‘no-worry’ experience for customers who prefer convenience over ownership. It aims to bring a new class of customers, including professionals, small businessmen and millennials, into the M&M car experience – who were waiting on the side-lines.
