The Tata Xenon Single Cab 4×2 Pick-up project had commenced in November 2015, when POS Malaysia decided to lease the pick-ups through DRB-HICOM EZ-Drive Sdn Bhd (EZ-Drive), leasing facilities. The leasing period is for 36 months, with an option to renew for another 24 months. In recent years, POS Malaysia had opted for operating lease over outright purchase due to lower ownership cost, lower upfront capex, better tax benefit and higher worker productivity where fleet management is now being taken care of by EZ-Drive.
