Southeast Toyota Finance Expands College Grad Rebate Program to Include Prius c

For college graduates, Southeast Toyota Finance just made the car-buying experience a little greener. The Prius c, a hot-selling choice for trend-setting urbanites on the go, was recently added to the list of Toyota vehicles eligible for the $1,000 Southeast Toyota College Graduate Rebate Program. 

Other vehicles also available in this program are the Toyota Camry (non-hybrid only), Corolla, Matrix, RAV4, Yaris and Tacoma. 

“The Prius c has been very popular with savvy young adults, so we are excited to offer this rebate to college graduates as they begin the next phase of their lives,” said Mike Tiufekchiev, vice president of Sales and Dealer Services, Southeast Toyota Finance. “The Prius c merges the dependability and economy that is a trademark of Toyota with exceptional fuel efficiency and a head-turning design.”  

The all-new Prius c is the ideal ride for the recent college graduate in the market for a fuel-efficient and tech-savvy solution to their transportation needs. It’s an urban-friendly vehicle that is accessible in price, has a city fuel economy rating of 53 mpg, offers available advanced electronics such as Entune™ technology, and an engaging driving experience. The Prius c, along with its Prius family members the v wagon and the third-generation liftback, have been recently named as the “Best Green Car to Buy 2012” by GreenCarReports.com. The letter “c” in the Prius’ name represents “city” and it was designed specifically with city-dwelling millennials in mind.

In addition to the $1,000 rebate, qualified college graduates are eligible for special incentives, such as:

• No money down when financing and no monthly payments for the first 90 days on select finance programs on all new Toyota vehicles
• Competitive APRs on all new Toyota vehicles and Toyota Certified Used Vehicles
• Waived security deposit on leased vehicles
• Toyota Care: a two-year/25,000-mile complimentary maintenance plan with roadside assistance

To qualify for the rebate at the time of vehicle purchase, customers must graduate from an accredited four-year college or university in the upcoming six months or have graduated in the last two years. The program is also available to graduates of accredited two-year colleges, nursing schools and other programs. Students enrolled in an accredited graduate degree program, such as law school, a master’s or a doctoral program, may qualify.

This incentive is being offered through January 2, 2013. Interested customers should contact their local Toyota dealer or visit www.setf.com/specialoffers/college
