From job loss protection to ‘buy now, pay in 2021’, Nissan has announced several such finance schemes and offers to lure customers. Nissan will also offer sanitised and safe pick-up and drop service to its customers
With the novel coronavirus having as big an impact on the economy as personal health, the motivation to buy cars during this time has expectedly lessened. Thankfully, car manufacturers are taking steps to up the sentiment. While Hyundai, Renault and a few other carmakers have already announced some interesting finance schemes and offers, Nissan is the latest manufacturer to join the bandwagon.
Nissan has launched a ‘buy now, pay later’ finance option. As per this scheme, customers who purchase the car right now can opt to commence the EMIs starting January 2021. This should ensure that customers don’t have to eat into their savings during this time of crisis. Nissan only has this offer on select models. The Japanese carmaker has also announced ‘Job loss protection’ on EMIs for loss of employment and medical emergencies.
Speaking about the initiatives, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said, “With innovative financial schemes and initiatives including ease of financing and convenience in getting their car serviced, Nissan India will enrich the customer experience at each step, which is especially important in such challenging times.”
Along with these initiatives, Nissan has also announced a pick-up and drop service for its customers in view of the prevailing COVID-19 situation. For the safety of the customers, cars will be sanitised at all frequent touchpoints of the vehicle including door handles, steering wheel, gear lever and more. As of now, this service is only available free of cost in all the ‘major cities’, in other locations it will demand a marginal charge.
Nissan has already shared the details of the 2020 Kicks, which will come with two engine option – a new 1.3-litre petrol turbo motor and the same 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol from before. The Chennai-based carmaker is also expected to enter the compact SUV space in the near future.
