Green Cars and Hybrids - Car Buying Service

The Union Plus Fuel Efficient Auto Rebate Difference:

Purchase a new union-made car that’s EPA-certified, and claim $200 in rebates
 

Union members and their families are already eligible for a $100 rebate toward the purchase of a union-made vehicle through the Union Plus Auto Buying Service.

Now you can receive an extra $100 rebate if you purchase a new, union-made EPA-certified green car – saving you a total of $200.

Benefits include:

  • A wide range of union-made vehicles in all sizes and styles
  • Save fuel by driving an EPA-certified vehicle
  • Get $200 in rebates from Union Plus, including the new Green Vehicle Energy Rebate
  • Support your fellow union members when you buy a new, union-made vehicle

If you've used this benefit, would you recommend it?

Claim your $200 in auto rebates

If you purchase a new union-made car that’s EPA-certified through the Union Plus Auto Buying Service will automatically receive a rebate check within six to eight weeks of purchase, from Union Plus.

Fuel-Efficient Auto Rebate Features

Union members and their families are already eligible for a $100 rebate toward the purchase of a union-made vehicle.

Now, when you purchase a union-made, "Green Car” that’s EPA-certified, claim your union-made Green Vehicle Energy Rebate of $200.

Don’t think all "green cars” are small. Many larger and family-sized union-made vehicles also qualify for the rebate. View a list of all union-made, EPA Green Cars here.

Benefits of using the Union Plus Auto Buying Service to purchase union-made green cars include:

  • No-hassle help in purchasing a new vehicle
  • Pre-negotiated fleet pricing on most new vehicles purchased through the program, typically 2 to 3% over dealer invoice
  • A wide range of union-made vehicles in all sizes and styles
  • Save fuel by driving an EPA-certified vehicle
  • Get $200 in rebates from Union Plus, including the new Green Vehicle Energy Rebate
  • Support your fellow union members when you buy a new, union-made vehicle

Gas-saving tips

No matter what kind of car you drive, there are strategies you can use to save gas, and save money, every single day. Here are some ideas:

  1. Drive less. Walk, ride your bike, take public transportation and consolidate trips whenever you can.
  2. Follow price, not brand. Despite what the ads say, all gas is pretty much the same. If you fill up a 20-gallon tank once a week, saving 10 cents a gallon could save you over $100 a year.
  3. Maintain your vehicle. A few simple procedures like changing your oil and filters, checking your tire pressure and removing heavy items from your trunk can improve your mileage and save you money.
  4. Ask about flexible shifts. If your union employer allows for four-days-a-week work schedules, instead of five-days-a-week, you could start saving 20% immediately on the fuel you use for commuting.
  5. Drive smart. Maintain a constant speed. Don’t rev your engine needlessly. Don’t warm up your engine for longer than necessary. And, during the summer, park in the shade.
