– $300,000 Cash Donation, Employee Pricing for Flood Victims –

In response to the heavy rains and subsequent flooding that severely damaged Tennessee, Nissan North America Inc. (NNA) is taking several measures to help the community it calls home.

Nissan today announced an immediate $200,000 cash donation to the American Red Cross in Middle Tennessee and a $50,000 cash donation to Second Harvest Food Bank to assist with flooding relief efforts in Tennessee. Nissan also will match employee donations to American Red Cross and Second Harvest Food Bank, dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000.


“Nissan is proud to have a strategic partnership with American Red Cross,” said Bill Krueger. “The Red Cross is an agency that can act quickly to assess and react to disasters. Their first-response capabilities have made the difference in the lives of people in Middle Tennessee.”

Additionally, Nissan will offer employee pricing and delayed finance payments on Nissan and Infiniti vehicles to eligible individuals who lost their vehicles due to flooding. Employee pricing and payment delay will be extended through June 30 to any resident of Tennessee and bordering Kentucky counties whose vehicle was damaged by flooding. Customers are 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.

“Due to this devastating storm, many area residents have been left without a means of personal transportation,” said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, sales and marketing, NNA. “Nissan is offering employee pricing to flood victims as one way to help them return to normal.”

Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.’s payment delay plan, which will allow customers to delay three vehicle payments without extension fees, will provide flood victims the time needed to get back on their feet 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.

“The American Red Cross is incredibly grateful for Nissan’s ongoing support,” said Joel Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, Nashville Area Chapter, American Red Cross. “Whether it’s Rutherford County, Davidson County, Mississippi or across the world in Haiti, Nissan is always one of the first corporations reaching out to offer their support. Nissan’s culture replicates the values of the American Red Cross by always being a first responder, and we take pride in serving on their behalf.”

Nissan’s American headquarters are based in Franklin, while the company has a significant manufacturing presence in Smyrna, Tenn., both part of the greater Nashville area. In all, Nissan employs more than 5,900 people statewide.
