Lincoln adds more pre-owned vehicles to its subscription service pilot
Lincoln announced this week that it's expanding the pilot of its subscription service. The company said late last year that it planned to launch such a service and while a small selection of 2015 models have since been available through Ford's Canvas platform for those in San Francisco and West Los Angeles, Lincoln is now including a much wider range of 2017 pre-owned vehicles for customers in West Los Angeles. Monthly payments depend on the mileage package a user wants, but they also cover insurance, warranty, maintenance and roadside assistance.
A number of automakers have embraced subscription models, though most of them offer new vehicles through their services. Lexus and BMW both announced subscription services recently while Cadillac, Volvo and Ford launched theirs previously.
Lincoln, which unveiled its Aviator SUV earlier this week, also includes its Pickup & Delivery service with subscriptions of its 2017 vehicles. If the vehicle needs service, Lincoln will send someone to pick up the car and drop off a loaner. And post-service, the car is returned in the same manner.
