Donlen Releases 36-Month Versus 60-Month Sedan Lifecycle Cost Analysis

Northbrook, IL, September 19, 2014 --( Donlen, the fleet industry's most customer-centric and technically integrated provider of financing and fleet management solutions, released today their “Lifecycle Cost Management: 36-Month versus 60-Month Sedan Lifecycle Cost Analysis” comparing costs associated with cycling a vehicle at 60 months versus the traditional 36-month cycle.

The analysis unveils the lifecycle costs associated with extending the cycle times for a typical sedan. "This analysis compares real data based on our Donlen portfolio and the findings identify how costs are impacted the longer you hold on to a vehicle. Our consulting team has published this analysis to help fleets understand the implications of extending their vehicle life cycles,” said Amy Blaine, Vice President of Consulting, Analytics and Sustainability. “Holding a vehicle longer to take advantage of declining lease payments and full depreciation may be viewed as a cost effective strategy, but the findings show that between the maintenance costs and missing the opportunity of higher resale values, along with lower fuel spend, the shorter cycle is actually more cost effective.”

This analysis provides informative charts and additional information including:
· What is lifecycle cost management
· Sedan lifecycle cost analysis
· Overall annual cash flow comparison
