We're Ayvens

A global leader in sustainable mobility.

Ayvens was born from the acquisition of LeasePlan (founded in Amsterdam in 1963) by ALD Automotive (founded in Paris in 1968), the global mobility player part of the Societe Generale group. By bringing together our complementary capabilities and expertise, we saw an opportunity to reimagine mobilty as we know it.

Mobility is evolving

From electrification to digitalisation, global megatrends are reshaping the ways we move around. New services and new market entrants are changing the mobility ecosystem. And there’s a shift taking place from vehicle ownership to usership – creating exciting growth opportunities for ambitious players like us.

As the undisputed leader in our sector, we’re uniquely positioned to unlock value in the new world of mobility. We purchase, fund and manage new vehicles for customers around the world, providing a flexible, hassle-free, end-to-end leasing service for a typical contract duration of three to four years. With our wide range of products, channels and brands, we deliver seamless solutions that unlock the freedom of mobility.
