Jaguar Land Rover and BNP Paribas have launched a suite of new mobility financing services across nine European markets as part of their strategic partnership.
The collaboration is the first phase of a transformational plan to reimagine the role of financial services for clients of its Range Rover, Defender, Discovery and Jaguar brands.
Since partnering in February 2022, Jaguar Land Rover and BNP Paribas have been collaborating to innovate and develop a truly integrated offering that covers all aspects of mobility financing needs. This approach will deliver seamless end-to-end connectivity and facilitates personalised modern luxury experiences from website to showroom.
Jaguar Land Rover retail partner networks and clients now have access to a comprehensive suite of competitive retail financing solutions, insurance and services, as well as wholesale financing.
The retail range includes products such as traditional loans, lease-to-purchase, long-term lease, ‘buy now, pay later’, insurance and services products. BNP Paribas leverages on all its business involved in mobility products and services with support from its Corporate and Institutional Banking department: BNP Paribas Personal Finance supports the provision of wholesale financing, retail loans and financial leases, Arval delivers lease and fleet management, Floa provides ‘buy now, pay later’ services, and BNP Paribas Cardif offers insurance products and services.

The launch across nine markets with our European strategic partner, BNP Paribas, is an exciting first phase of innovating mobility finance to create a modern luxury financial services experience for our clients.”

Leveraging on the efficiency of its One Bank model, BNP Paribas is fully committed to building a truly integrated service covering all types of mobility financing needs, across nine strategic markets in Europe.”

Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy is delivering a sustainability-rich vision of modern luxury by design.
We are transforming our business to become carbon net zero across our supply chain, products, and operations by 2039. We have set a roadmap to reduce emissions across our own operations and value chains by 2030 through approved, science-based targets. Electrification is central to this strategy and before the end of the decade our Range Rover, Discovery, Defender collections will each have a pure electric model, while Jaguar will be entirely electric.
At heart we are a British company, with two design and engineering sites, three vehicle manufacturing facilities, an engine manufacturing centre, and a battery assembly centre in the UK. We also have vehicle plants in China (a joint venture), Slovakia, Austria (contract manufacturing with Magna Steyr), India (contract manufacturing with Tata Motors Ltd) and Brazil, as well as seven technology hubs across the globe.
