By now we’ve heard about the job losses, ever-increasing unemployment rate, new mortgage payment plans and more of how every industry is going to react to lessen the economic blow of COVID-19. Automakers from Ford Motor Company to Kia Motors America, to Nissan North America, and so many more are announcing new coronavirus car payment plans and programs.
Numerous car manufacturers are faced with slow or non-existing new sales, fear of people defaulting on cars loans, and an inventory that’s just not moving. In response, they’re working with their own financial institutions to counteract the economic impact COVID-19 is having on the automotive industry.
Ford Credit, Honda Financial Services, Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation, Toyota Financial Services and more are offering major financial help including delayed payments, payment relief options, and funding for new car purchases.
Aside from coronavirus payment plans, flexible payment arrangements and payment extensions, automakers are also offering programs. For example, Hyundai Capita is offering the Hyundai Motor America Assurance Job Loss Protection program. It will make up for up to six months of payments for new car owners who lose their jobs and purchased a vehicle between March 14th and April 30th.
