This offer is in addition to all the current incentives when purchasing or leasing a new Volvo through the A-Plan program.

A-Plan By Volvo Program Customer Eligibility

Corporate Employees

The A-Plan by Volvo Corporate Partner program is offered to active employees of selected US and Canadian business partners, fleet partners, and special organizations, all having a unique relationship with Volvo. Additional purchase eligibility will be extended to eligible employee’s spouses and members of their immediate households only.

Through the A-Plan by Volvo Corporate Partner portion of the program, eligible individuals can generate up to two (2) personal identification numbers (PINs) per year that may be used to purchase or lease new vehicles. Eligible users should register and login to learn more about the program, including vehicle information, plan pricing, and to generate a PIN certificate. Eligible users will need to contact their Human Resources Administrator, in order to acquire the appropriate “Partner Code”, which is required to access the site.

Volvo Cars Dealer Employees

An eligible active Volvo Cars Dealer employee as noted below may sponsor up to two (2) PINs per calendar year, to be used towards the purchase or lease of a new vehicle.

  • Dealership employees, and their immediate household family members only. (Immediate Household is defined as residing at the same address as the PIN Sponsor)
  • Employees must be employed at least 3 months, and be currently listed in Dealer Master, at their Volvo retail facility.
  • Dealership employees may not act as a broker, by requesting a PIN for a customer.
  • Dealerships, or anyone connected with or acting on behalf of the dealership, cannot purchase or solicit PINs.

The Dealer may charge the customer any price negotiated (at or above cost) for accessories, dealer installed options, extended service contracts, and other items or services, that add value to the vehicle, provided such items are priced separately, and listed individually on the retail buyer’s order and the A-Plan by Volvo Pricing Agreement.

Volvo Dealers will notify the customer as soon as the vehicle has been prepared for delivery. A-Plan by Volvo customers must accept delivery and make final settlement within five working days of notification by the Dealer that the vehicle is available for delivery. Unless otherwise agreed to by the Dealer and the A-Plan by Volvo customer, vehicle disposition becomes the sole responsibility of the delivering dealership on the sixth day.

What is a PIN?

A Volvo PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a unique code required for each transaction under the A-Plan Elite program. This Volvo PIN must be generated by the eligible A-Plan member. When a Volvo PIN is generated, the A-Plan member will receive their Volvo PIN delivered in an email. The A-Plan member will need to provide their PIN to an authorized participating Volvo Car retailer to secure the A-Plan Elite pricing and bonus offer.

A-Plan eligible members can use their Volvo PIN for:

  • New Volvo purchase*
  • New Volvo lease*
  • Volvo Overseas Delivery program purchase

*Excludes Demonstrator vehicles and Courtesy Vehicles/Service Loaners

Pin Generation

Click on the “Generate PIN” button.

You will receive an email containing your Volvo PIN or you can access your Volvo PINs at the bottom of the PINs page.

The A-Plan program requires the name/address attached to your Volvo PINs to match the name/address of the purchaser identified on the sales transaction. Please ensure the address listed on your profile is accurate and verifiable using appropriate personal identification (i.e. driver license). In addition, your Volvo Car retailer will ask you to provide proof of eligibility, which must match the company or organization associated with your A-Plan account. See eligibility guidelines below for more details.

The PINs must not, under any circumstances, be provided to any other person except the Volvo Car retailer at the time of purchase or lease. Providing a PIN to any other person is a violation of the A-Plan by Volvo Terms & Conditions.

A-Plan participants are required to provide their Volvo Car retailer with proof of eligibility documents at the time of sale. These documents will substantiate that the A-Plan user is eligible to receive the A-Plan offer. Below is a list of the required documents for program eligibility.

Program Policies

Customer/Sponsor Obligations and Rules

A PIN Sponsor is defined as the eligible A-Plan participant. Sponsors may purchase the vehicle themselves or generate PIN numbers for eligible immediate family members. Sponsors are responsible for managing their PIN allocation, and helping to ensure that customers follow the rules. If a customer fails to follow the rules, (including the length of ownership requirement) the sponsor’s plan eligibility may be at risk. Vehicles purchased or leased by customers sponsored by an employee, retiree, or surviving spouse, will count against the total number of vehicles that may be sponsored during a given calendar year. If after ordering a vehicle under the terms of the new vehicle purchase program, the customer cannot take delivery from the designated Volvo Dealer, the customer must promptly advise a sales representative.

Dealership Obligations and Rules

Participating Volvo Dealers agree to comply with all of the terms outlined under this A-Plan by Volvo program. Authorized Volvo Dealers are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the A Plan by Volvo program. All customers will receive an A-Plan by Volvo “Pricing Agreement” which will identify the A-Plan purchase price, the price of each dealer-added option, any negative equity on the trade-in unit, gifts, and any other allowable fees and taxes. A copy of the factory invoice, showing the vehicle purchase program price will also be provided. The A-Plan by Volvo Pricing Agreement must be signed by the Dealer and the customer, and a copy provided to the customer.

Referral Fees

A-Plan by Volvo sponsors may not accept referral fees, under any circumstances.

Document Fees

Volvo Dealers will be permitted to charge up to $100.00 in documentary fees, on each delivery to an eligible purchaser, under the terms of the A-Plan by Volvo program unless otherwise prohibited by state and local laws, or statutory regulations. Each Dealer is responsible for complying with their respective applicable laws or regulations.

Financing, Insurance, Titles and Taxes

Purchase/lease financing may be obtained at the customer’s discretion from any source. Each vehicle purchased or leased, will be covered by the same warranty as those sold to retail customers. The customer is responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes, license and title fees. Non-eligible family members may appear as co-signers or co-makers of the loan or other financing agreement, and may also appear as co-owners on the Vehicle Title or Registration. However, the primary user of the vehicle must be the A-Plan eligible member. A-Plan program customers are required to provide their own liability and collision insurance for both purchases and leases.

Titling eligibility is as follows

Vehicles must be retained in the customer’s possession and registered as provided above for at least six months from the date of purchase or lease.

Individuals:

Vehicles must be registered or titled to the A-Plan eligible individual. Non-eligible members may appear as co-signers or co-makers of the loan or other financing agreement, and may also appear on the Vehicle Title or Registration. However, the primary user of the vehicle must be the A-Plan by Volvo eligible member. Vehicles also may be registered in the name of a customer’s trust provided that the customer’s name is included in the name of the trust, i.e. “John Smith Trust.”

Commercial:

A-Plan vehicles may be registered or titled in the name of a business (excluding automotive dealerships and their leasing companies). A-Plan vehicles may be purchased or leased for commercial use.

Process and Documentation

Sales and Delivery Requirements

The dealership may require the A-Plan customer to make a deposit when placing a vehicle order. Some or all of this deposit may be retained by the dealership, if the customer declines to accept delivery of the product as ordered. An agreement in writing should be reached with the Volvo Dealer, concerning the amount of the deposit, and the conditions under which it may be retained by the dealership if the transaction is not completed.

Lease transactions may require a refundable security deposit. The security deposit is held until the end of the lease and is refunded, provided that the lease terms have been satisfied.
