Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease mar­ket­place, offers insight into which car and truck lease seg­ments are in demand based on year-over-year changes in inven­to­ry list­ings. Vehi­cles in the Green/Hybrid seg­ment led all cat­e­gories in Sep­tem­ber, ris­ing 66.7% from year-ago lev­els.

Swapalease.com is an online mar­ket­place that allows dri­vers to list their vehi­cle leas­es for the pur­pose of find­ing anoth­er indi­vid­ual to take over the remain­ing por­tion of the con­tract. The mar­ket­place can iden­ti­fy leas­es in demand by mea­sur­ing the amount of list­ings and trans­fer activ­i­ty com­pared with pre­vi­ous months and years.

Car man­u­fac­tur­ers have rolled out more options in the Green/Hybrid cat­e­go­ry over the last few years, and con­sumers have respond­ed with more inter­est. Man­u­fac­tur­ers and deal­ers have also intro­duced more attrac­tive lease pro­grams on these vehi­cles, which helps to explain the rise in trans­fer activ­i­ty for these vehi­cles.

Vans lead all seg­ments on the decline with a -37.5% change from year-ago lev­els. Con­vert­ibles are next show­ing a -7.1% change in the inventory/transfer lev­els, although this seg­ment usu­al­ly sees neg­a­tive shifts this time of year due to sea­son­al­i­ty pat­terns. Inter­est­ing­ly enough, trucks are third low­est with just a 4.8% change from a year ago, despite high­er over­all inter­est in con­sumer shop­ping for trucks.

“Since the reces­sion we’ve seen a steady rise in the num­ber of Green/Hybrid vehi­cles in the Swapalease.com mar­ket­place,” said Scot Hall, Exec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of Swapalease.com. “We antic­i­pate this trend to con­tin­ue in the near term, par­tic­u­lar­ly with the strong empha­sis on lease deals for these eco-friend­ly vehi­cles.”
