DaimlerChrysler will begin offering “preferred” new-vehicle pricing to employees of Chrysler Group suppliers this month.

The programme, the DaimlerChrysler Affiliate Rewards Supplier Programme, gives US employees of Chrysler Group suppliers and their subsidiaries the opportunity to purchase or lease Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles at 1% below factory invoice cost.

The “preferred” pricing may be combined with most consumer incentives available at the time of sale for even greater savings. Eligible employees and their spouses may purchase or lease up to two vehicles per calendar year.

Supplier companies are required to complete an enrollment process which allows them to participate in the new vehicle purchase programme.
