S90 T8 Deal Closed


#61

Yes, but like I said - 3k is for VIP a-plan. So it is 9k.


#62

I don’t know what that means (VIP) but it is a screen shot of my account from our company. Do I have to buy the excellence to get it or something?

It looks like “theoretically” I would have 12K + 5.1K in rebates on a T8. Between that, a discount on MSRP, and the 1500 rebate, I could get in the mid 4’s for a monthly with just drive off’s and max MSD in the 77K range for this vehicle.

Just want to make sure I am not crazy before I look research any further.

Thanks @Ursus


#63

VIP is for Volvo employees, I think. You will get 3k a-plan + 6k Volvo cash + 5k Volvo


#64

These swings in discount on the T8 are interesting. Then went from having 3k A plan to removing it and now having the possibility of 6k from A plan.


#65

Although still expensive, it brings the car into buying range for sure.


#66

My bad - 20k is on XC90 T8 Excellence.


#67

SoCal


#68

Not sure what I will get back as far as an accurate answer from a dealership, but never hurts to ask, so I did. I am guessing you are right though. There is always fine print, and in this case, I can’t even find that. The extra 3K would put that T8 into a very good deal category.


#69

Here is the lease quote from the local dealer on the T8 inscription. They are saying only $5500 in rebates, not $6000. Also, not sure how they are accounting for the 5002 credit , but it looks like it is outside of the deal quoted, and would come back as a credit at tax time?

Either way this would be a lot of work to get in the “great deal” range.

77,190.00 MSRP

12,193.00 Savings

64,997.00 Sale Price

If Volvo shows 6k for your zip ($6,750 in NE), it is 6k. Show it to them. $5,200 credit is passed to you and should be applied to the lease. And I suggest just getting the sales price before any incentives, don’t ask for the lease payment. Then you can bring them to the correct payments based on valid incentives.
Should be $612/mo with 10 MSDs + tax, fees, etc on 24/7.5 (6,000+3,000 a-plan+5,200 and 6% off a-plan)
$584/mo on 36/7.5 same as above


#71

Thanks @Ursus.

I emailed this dealer only to get clarification on what the “VIP” 3K addition was. I could not get a straight answer out of her on this, which tells me, I do not qualify. She was, however, willing to provide the ridiculous quote.

If I decide to go unicorn hunting, or my first deal falls through, I will look up the T8.


#72

A-Plan VIP is rare (and includes non-Volvo employees) and the Elite or VIP amount is $3,000, not $6,000.

The $5,002 is a rebate towards your drive-off (including MSDs), which represents the pass through of the Federal tax credit.

You get $1,500 from CA if as a single person your gross income is <$150,000. If married, it needs to be <$300,000.

@Jesuscookies - that chart you posted is screwed up. Base MSRP does not equal Base A-Plan. Base A-Plan is invoice (the way they show it, not including advertising).

You’ll likely get around $500 from PG&E or whatever utility you’re using.


#73

Don’t mislead. It is for Volvo USA employees and their family members.

Wrong, again. It is non-cash lease credit and shown on line 6b of the lease contract.


#74

The chart came straight from the Volvo A-Plan site when I logged in and created the account.

I never did get a straight answer from the salesperson on who qualifies for the magical elusive “VIP” status, but willing to bet @Ursus explanation is closest to the truth.


#75

My explanation comes straight from the horse’s mouth :slightly_smiling_face:
BTW, @KD6-3.7 - check out T5/T6 a-plan price. It’s exactly 6% off, so you can put to bed freight and advertising a-plan “adjustments”.


#76

I don’t doubt you, was hoping to hear it from a salesperson, but realize that was a lesson in futility. :blush:


#77

Yeah, it’s always better to hear from a dealer than from strangers. But sometimes they are clueless, including GMs.

Saying it’s rare is “misleading?” Most employee deals I’ve seen are the 1 year leases and we just act in a courtesy delivery fashion. An A-Plan VIP PIN can be gifted by Volvo Cars employees and retirees- I’ve had a few of those. How about you? Or employees or family members with VIP PINs?

Yes- non-cash lease credit on line 6b along with rebates. Please illuminate us on the difference functionally between “non-cash lease credit” and rebate.
@Ursus

Wrong. Please refer to attached image of invoice including $500 advertising and $10 for Alex’s Foundation donation. A-Plan base price is the same as the invoice. Have you looked at your invoices? Please illuminate us on how the base A-Plan price is “exactly 6%.”


#79

Yeah this advertisement and freight charge he keeps talking about is adding too much complexity. The A plan website lists the expect price, the end.


#80

@Jesuscookies - I don’t doubt you, was hoping to hear it from a salesperson, but realize that was a lesson in futility. :blush:

Name the employer that qualifies you for A-Plan and I can tell you if it’s Elite or VIP. Or Ursus can. Maybe.
