Nissan Vehicle Purchase Program: The Answers
Q. Is there a waiting period for new employees, contractors?
A. Yes. NCI employees and contractors are eligible for the VPP after 3 months of continued service.
Q. Are there maximums for how many cars I can buy in a year?
A. Yes. Employees / Contractors are limited to an overall maximum of 8 vehicle purchases per fiscal year. Purchases under Plan A are limited to 2 per fiscal year. Once an employee or retiree has reached their Plan A maximum, additional VPP sales will be at the Plan B rate. NCI's fiscal year runs from April 1st to March 31st.
Q. I want to know how much the car I want will cost. How can I get a price quote?
A. VPP vehicle pricing can be obtained only through a Nissan or Infiniti dealership. When you present your VPP claim form, you are entitled to see the invoice pricing of the vehicle you are intending to buy.
Q. Now can I find out what my VPP discount will be?
A. VPP discounts are determined by Nissan Canada and will change from time to time. For full pricing information you must visit a participating Nissan or Infiniti dealership.
Q. What if I want to purchase accessories? Will I get a discount?
A. There is no pre-negotiated VPP price for dealer-installed accessories. Prices for accessories are negotiable between you and the dealership. Nissan Canada Inc. employees should refer to the Employee parts Purchase program for current information.
Q. How can I find out if incentives are being offered on the car I am interested in?
A. For information on current VPP incentives, click on the Incentives Tab at the top of this page. Nissan and Infiniti dealers will also be able to provide current incentive information.
Q. Can the value of my trade-in be used to further reduce my purchase price?
