Find it and DRIVE it - new car online lease service launched

Car leasing journey can be complete in under 30 days! 

Key Points

  1. VWFS DRIVE dramatically speeds up the new car finance process
  2. Access to hundreds of vehicles readily available from across the Volkswagen Group UK
  3. Introducing a simple online search and finance application method, with convenient car collection from a local Volkswagen Group retailer

We are proud to share the news that VWFS has launched an innovative car leasing platform which can put drivers behind the wheel of a brand-new car, direct from the manufacturer, within just 30 days.

The new service called VWFS DRIVE provides access to a range of competitively priced stock vehicles online across our Volkswagen Group brands, including Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, thanks to a quick and easy online process.  All the cars are leased from available stock meaning no waiting around for factory lead times.

“DRIVE is an exciting addition to the range of options we provide to connect buyers with the cars of their dreams.”

Hanna Reiger - Product Owner

Buyers can choose their preferred choice of a new car or van from the extensive range by going online and visiting drive.vwfs.co.uk. Once buyers have chosen their vehicle, they can obtain a personalised quote. The order is then placed and the owner can select a local franchised Volkswagen Group retailer from which to collect their new vehicle – all within 30 days.

Our site also includes a straightforward online finance and credit application process for Audi. This means personal Contract Hire customers can now apply for finance and credit from any device, anywhere, at their own leisure. All before being introduced to a retailer for contract signing and fulfilment of their vehicle. This feature will be rolled out to remaining brands on VWFS DRIVE in the coming weeks and months. 

Product Owner of eCommerce, Hanna Reiger, says: “DRIVE is an exciting addition to the range of options we provide to connect buyers with the cars of their dreams. DRIVE makes use of the speed and access provided by online platforms so that consumers can make their car choices at a time and place that is convenient to them. All the available vehicles come directly from trusted brands within our Volkswagen Group, are competitively priced and, best of all, can be in the hands of a new owner within 30 days.

We are continually seeking to provide new and innovative ways to support consumers on their car buying journey and the online experience is a familiar one for many. DRIVE is another example of that support in action, enabling consumers to quickly find the vehicle they want, arrange finance without any delay and collect the new car from a retailer of their choice within a month of starting the process. Essentially find it and drive it!”
