I think car manufacturers incentivize shorter leases for several reasons: 1) the lease residual is easier to predict on earlier lease returns (and are therefore subject to less risk of uncertainty), 2) it helps the dealers' used car divisions by giving them more newer cars to sell, and 3) it reduces the average age of the leasing fleet.
