Preferred Pricing and EVA
How is the discount pricing changing?
The employee and supplier discount programs will share the same formula price called Preferred Pricing. Employees, retirees and eligible family members will be able to reduce this price further by deducting an exclusive new component called the Employee Vehicle Allowance (EVA). As in the past, you can also take advantage of most current incentives and available bonus cash.
What is the effective date for this change?
Preferred Pricing took effect January 5, 2010.
What is the Employee Vehicle Allowance (EVA)?
EVA will give you additional savings on nearly every eligible, new GM vehicle. It will be reviewed periodically and adjusted based on market conditions. Beginning in December, you will be able to view current EVA amounts for each eligible vehicle at gmfamilyfirst.com.
What is the difference between bonus cash and EVA?
EVA will only be available to GM employees, retirees and their eligible family members. Bonus cash is separate from EVA and may extend to other programs.
Can I combine EVA with other offers?
Yes, you can combine EVA with your Preferred Pricing, most current incentives and available bonus cash.
How do I find out what the current EVA is?
In December, you will receive an email that includes a link to a chart displaying EVA amounts. You will also be able to view the current EVA amounts for each eligible GM vehicle at gmfamilyfirst.com. Please be sure the email address listed in your profile on gmfamilyfirst.com is your current email address.
Will EVA amounts vary by dealer?
No, EVA amounts will take effect nationally and will not vary by dealer.
Which vehicles are eligible for EVA?
EVA will be available on nearly every new and unused 2009, 2010 and 2011 GM passenger car, SUV, crossover and light-duty truck. From time to time, certain vehicles will not get EVA. The EVA amount will vary on eligible vehicles.
Are authorization numbers for the current program still valid?
Yes, authorization numbers obtained under the current employee discount pricing will be valid for six (6) months from the date they were obtained. Vehicles delivered beginning January 5, 2010, will be priced with Preferred Pricing and EVA regardless of when they were ordered. Vehicles delivered before that time will be priced under the current employee discount formula.
Are family members eligible for EVA?
Yes, eligible GM employees and retirees can sponsor their spouse, children, stepchildren, grandchildren, stepgrandchildren, grandparents (including in-law and step), parents, stepparents, siblings (including full, half and step), mother-/father-in-law, sons-/daughters-in-law, brothers-/sisters-in-law and same-sex domestic partners (SSDPs) where applicable. (Note: Eligible SSDPs are treated the same as spouses, and therefore, their eligible family members are also included.)
What is the difference between Preferred Pricing and Supplier for Friends?
Preferred Pricing and Supplier for Friends pricing will share the same formula price; however, Supplier for Friends is not compatible with EVA.
Will I be able to see Preferred Pricing on the dealer invoice?
Yes. Preferred Pricing will appear as PREFER on the dealer invoices. However, EVA amounts will not be included. In order to view the current EVA amounts, please visit gmfamilyfirst.com.
Does Preferred Pricing affect QRD (formerly known as PEP)?
No, QRD pricing will remain the same. EVA will not be compatible with QRD pricing. However, you may continue to combine QRD pricing with most current incentives and available bonus cash.
