Chrysler Creates Program to Help Drivers After Hurricane Sandy

Living in New York for the past week hasn’t been easy. The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is still being felt in neighborhoods that have been without power for well over a week and Governor Cuomo is putting the damage estimates near 33 billion. It’s been a long and rough road and some of the worst photos to come out during and after the storm was watching numerous vehicles washed away in the chaos. Thankfully, automakers like Chrysler have decided to step up and help the rebuilding process along by offering a helping hand to the drivers who need it most.

According to, Chrysler will be starting a new program for residents in FEMA designated disaster areas. Eligible drivers can get a 500 dollar cash allowance coupon to put towards the purchase or a least of the majority of 2012 or 2013 models for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Fiat. The program will be running up until January 2nd.

Along with hurricane aid, Chrysler has a new program for military vets in the Veterans Day Military Appreciation Bonus Cash. This will also offer $500 toward the purchase or leasing of vehicles in the Chrysler family. The program reaches out to inactive military reservists and vets who have been honorably discharged. It will run through November 17th.

Sandy left a wave of destruction in its path, and it’s good to know that there are companies out there helping people out in a time where any assistance is needed. It’s never easy to lose something like a car in extreme weather, but thanks to Chrysler and other automakers, there are options out there to help ease the pain.

Queens was one of the areas hit and has been designated a disaster area by FEMA. Go online to view our Chrysler inventory at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Be sure to also like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for more monthly deals on Chrysler vehicles.

Are Electric Cars in Chrysler’s Future?

Gas prices are back on the rise and so the conversation has shifted once again to what needs to be done to get off the dependency we have on oil. The Toledo Blade is reporting that Chrysler believes that an answer may just lead in electric cars.

“We believe in electrification, sparingly and for the right kinds of targeted applications,” said Bob Lee, vice president and head of engine and electrified propulsion engineering. “We’re developing technology for commercialization, preparing for the shift when consumers start pulling them into the marketplace.”

Chrysler has been trailing behind its competitors with the production of electric and hybrid vehicles. Sergio Marchionne, the chief executive officer of Chrysler and Fiat, sees this as a new opportunity for the company. Chrysler already has some plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles in the form of Town & Country minivans, but they are only available in California, Arizona, North Carolina, and Michigan. Ram pickups are looking at the possibility of making a plug-in hybrid of their pickups.

The future of the auto industry is unwritten in terms of what will be fueling the next generation. It’s good to see, however, that many are starting to try to figure out ways of getting drivers out of oil and adapting new and cleaner technologies.
