Volkswagen is leasing vehicles with a variety of leases for the second quarter, including a $1,400 annual payment, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The company will pay the first $500 in lease payments upfront.
The vehicle leasing program is aimed at those who want to buy a used vehicle, or want to lease a car, the person said.
VW is selling its leased vehicles at $1.7 million per vehicle in the first quarter, according a VW spokesman.
In addition to leasing, VW will sell some of its cars online and on-line.
Its car dealerships have been expanding into new markets, including in China, where they have opened up sales in recent months.
The first car in the Chinese market, the C-Class sedan, sold for $839,800 in China in October.
The second vehicle, the A6 sedan, is priced at $858,500.
The car-rental program is also being rolled out in Europe, with about 200 new vehicles available for lease in the continent, according VW spokeswoman Carina Wiederholz.
Volkswagen said last week that it expects to have 1.8 million vehicles available worldwide for leasing, with the majority in the United States.
The VW leasing program offers a wide variety of options, from monthly payments to leases, the spokeswoman said.
The lease payments can range from $250 to $5,000.
VW leases its leased cars at lease rates of $1 to $3 per month.
The company has a $7 billion loan with a rate of 5 percent that is backed by the U.S. government, the company said in a statement.
Volkswagen will pay off its loans at market rate, Wiederslueger said.
