The privilege of partnership: NBB recognized by OEMs

By NBB | August 16, 2011

As a result of ongoing OEM outreach programs, National Biodiesel Board members can participate in partner vehicle pricing plans with Chrysler and Ford.


The Chrysler Affiliate Rewards program and the Ford X-Plan offer deep discounts to members of partner organizations. Because of NBB’s relationship with these two OEMs, NBB members, as well as company employees and their spouses can receive discounts on the purchase or lease of eligible vehicles. Plans include most models of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ford and Lincoln vehicles including diesel and gasoline models.


“The reward programs with Chrysler and Ford really show the strength of the relationships built by the National Biodiesel Board with the OEM community,” said Jennifer Weaver, NBB OEM outreach and education specialist. “It is exciting to see that these relationships translated into direct savings for NBB members, above and beyond the benefits of having major engine manufacturers backing biodiesel.”


The process for using the rewards system is as simple as logging into the OEM’s website to provide some personal information and a partner code provided on the NBB members only website, and then taking a print-out to your local dealer along with identification and proof of NBB membership. The no-haggle, preferred price is typically below factory invoice and is available in addition to most consumer incentives available at the dealership.


Weaver added that currently more than 60 percent of manufacturers in the U.S. market have approved the use of B20 or higher blends in their equipment. The B20 support spans the light-, medium- and heavy-duty sectors and includes agriculture, fleet and over-the-road applications.
The U.S. auto industry and OEMs continue to show their support for biodiesel in a number of ways. In the past several years, we have seen companies increase their support by warrantying B20, designing drivetrains with biodiesel in mind, and integrating biodiesel into marketing campaigns, to name a few.
Additional information on OEM support for biodiesel can be found at www.biodiesel.org/resources/oems/ including an OEM statement summary, listings of available diesel vehicles in the U.S., biodiesel standards and more.
