Mazda has introduced a discount to help those affected by Hurricane Ian. The new disaster relief program offers a $500 boost in savings for those looking to replace a car or truck. This marks the latest in a growing list of programs to help consumers in need of financial assistance with vehicle replacement due to Hurricane Ian.

According to a letter sent to Mazda dealers, the program began on September 28th and offers those in eligible states a $500 cash incentive on eligible 2023 and 2022 vehicles when buying or leasing. There are no major exclusions, which means the discount can be claimed on anything from a new Mazda Miata to a CX-9.

To get the discount, you'll need to be a resident of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, or North Carolina. You'll also need to show proof of residence and a copy of a valid insurance claim listing damage or a total loss occurring within the dates of September 28th and October 4th. The program is set to end on January 3rd, 2023.

A closer look finds that the $500 incentive can be combined with other offers like the brand's $500 loyalty discount or $500 military discount. While it's important to keep in mind that Mazda deals vary by region, those in cities like Miami may be able to take advantage of 1.9% financing for up to 60 months on a new 2022 CX-9.

As millions of residents in the Southeast continue to deal with the devastation of Hurricane Ian, other automakers are rolling out assistance programs. Today, GM introduced up to a $1,000 vehicle replacement incentive. In addition, Toyota is now offering payment extensions and deferred lease payments for customers.

Those forced to replace a car due to Hurricane Ian may face serious challenges. A chip shortage has resulted in limited availability for a wide range of vehicles, and low supply has compelled manufacturers to significantly cut incentives. For example, Mazda practically eliminated all rebates and is no longer offering 0% financing.
