Targa Telematics has enabled Leasys Miles, a new business model applied to long-term rental, by Leasys, an Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Bank mobility company.
Leasys Miles is a solution based on a Pay as you Go concept. Users will be charged based on the actual miles carried out per month. After making an initial rental payment and paying a fixed monthly ‘subscription’, the balance of the lease is charged by the mile. This means that the balance is calculated on the use, allowing the user of the vehicle to pay only the miles driven during each month with no additional charge for the first certain amount of miles included in the offer.
Leasys Miles exists in the UK thanks to the technology provided by Targa Telematics. The new solution is made possible through the elaboration of data through Targa Telematics’ smart digital platform, able to elaborate the number of miles, helpful to monitor the costs of the use of the vehicle. Targa Telematics, providing its digital platforms in the various microservices used, in just three months allowed Leasys to launch this revolutionary new offer to the market, providing an immediate response to the product launch requirements. In fact, Leasys is always looking for new proposals to anticipate the evolution of mobility and the constantly and rapidly changing new consumer needs and habits.
Leasys Miles is available in the UK for Fiat 500 Mild Hybrid Lounge, with no additional charges for the first 500 miles. With this solution, drivers will also be able to pay less than 20 pence for every mile travelled. Communities of friends, colleagues or family members can thus have a valid alternative for their mobility needs. The pay-as-you-go solution is also available for Fiat 500X Sport, Tipo Cross and selected Abarth 595 models.
“This is a paradigm shift: the information on the use of a vehicles becomes the real value to implement a truly innovative commercial solution. – comments Massimiliano Balbo di Vinadio, Targa Telematics Vice President – Sales LA.

Sebastiano Fedrigo, managing director of Leasys in the UK, said: “We are very proud to be launching innovative products during this difficult period. We understand now more than ever that innovation is what is required to adapt our companies to a very rapidly changing market. Leasys Miles has reinvented the traditional car lease model by moving to something we’re all much more familiar with nowadays.
