Nissan Americas is offering employee pricing and delayed finance payments to victims of the recent tornadoes and floods across the southeastern U.S. The latest gesture comes after the company donated $115,000 to the Red Cross to help with the relief efforts.

Qualified buyers, meaning those from the southeast who were left without a mode of transportation after the storms, will be offered Nissans at a price normally reserved for company workers and their immediate families. To be eligible for the program, you have to live in Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi or Alabama and be able to provide proof of damage to your primary vehicle.

NISSAN OFFERS EMPLOYEE PRICING, DELAYED FINANCE PAYMENTS FOR STORM VICTIMS IN SOUTHEASTERN U.S.
Offer follows recent cash donation to support disaster relief

Nissan Americas today announced that it will offer employee pricing and delayed finance payments to consumers who sustained vehicle damage or loss as a result of catastrophic storms, floods and tornadoes in the southeastern U.S.

Through this special program, eligible individuals will have access to offers that are normally reserved for Nissan employees or their immediate family members.

The offer follows an announcement of Nissan's support for storm-related humanitarian aide efforts. On May 2, the company said it committed $115,000 to the American Red Cross to help provide food, clothing and shelter for victims of the catastrophic storms.

"Because of Nissan's strong presence in the southeastern U.S., we've seen up-close the impact of recent devastating weather, which has left many area residents without personal transportation," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, sales and marketing, NNA. "We want to do our part to assist our neighbors, and are offering employee pricing to disaster victims as one way to help them return to normal."

Nissan Americas is headquartered in Franklin, Tenn., and operates manufacturing facilities in Canton, Miss., as well as Smyrna and Decherd, Tenn. The company also has parts distribution facilities and sales offices in the southeastern U.S.

Consumers in who live in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas or Kentucky in an affected county listed on the FEMA website (http://www.fema.gov/news/disasters.fema) are eligible for the program, which offers pricing of up to $1,500 off dealer invoice as well as all applicable incentives. Buyers will be required to show proof of damage and should work with area dealers to apply this offer. More information can be found by following a special link at www.InsideNissan.com.

In addition to special pricing, eligible individuals will be offered delayed financing through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s Payment Delay Plan. This program allows customers to delay three vehicle payments without extension fees, allowing disaster victims to focus on recovery without the added burden of a vehicle payment. Nissan's financial services division has been a leader in providing payment assistance to its customers in times of crisis.

Nissan has a long history of responding to humanitarian needs and disaster relief through organizations that include the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity and Second Harvest Food Bank.

          For the record, I'm assuming a Nissan George Costanza would be a Murano Convertible with wood grain and authentic teeth marks.

      I hope they do this for charity and not for publicity.

      I predict a run on the official used car substitute - the Nissan Versa. Nothing says I Love You like a $200 car payment. Buying new may be the easiest route since so many cars were either destroyed by flooding or tornados or beaten to death by baseball sized hail. Finding a $1500 beater in lower Alabama might be a real treasure hunt.

      As a car guy of 25 years, this is like me going to a funeral and handing the surviving spouse my business card and telling her to think of me when it's time for a new car. Or to be really cynical, when the life insurance policy pays off. Great thinking Nissan!

      This is total B.S. Anyone can negotiate a better deal then employee pricing anywhere in the country at anytime. Trying to sell new cars off the back of these disasters smells of exploitation. The only people who may benefit from advertised employee pricing are the dealers. The 115K to the red cross seems generous at first glance but...it obviously came out of the advertising budget.

      Curious to note, Autoblog has no mention of the 15 Silverado crew cabs donated or the $600,000 GM donated to the Red Cross for the people of the southern states.

        Why would an article on Nissan's offer mention GM? This article is put together mostly based on the press release and isn't intended to be a deep dive into charitable giving by automotive companies. The author is only alloted so much space and is using it to pass along what to some is helpful information. If it helps a few people find a deal on a desperately needed vehicle then that's great. If you don't care what Nissan is doing then I suggest employing that little wheel between the mouse buttons. It is quite handy for scrolling past things you have no interest in reading.

        Come on dude, ALL carmakers give trucks to Habitat, disaster relief, all kinds of stuff. GM's PR machine is the absolute best at making $1 sound like a million, so relax. GM is not special in the least among automakers when it comes to charity.

      Included at no extra cost, you glow in the dark after 1500 miles.

      Why the hell are people angry at this? You guys are just jealous. Yeah, they get PR out of this but so what ? They also give something to the people that are in need. They did it with Katrina too. Haters going to hate. Good job, Nissan.
