Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC) has become the latest auto finance company to sign up to the automotive shopping and financing platform AutoGravity.

The collaboration will enable consumers to select any Nissan vehicle and source finance offers from NMAC within minutes on their mobile device.

Consumers looking to purchase a Nissan can access personalized retail and lease pre-approval offers through their smartphones.

Kevin Cullum, president of NMAC, said: “NMAC wants to provide consumers the most seamless automotive financing process possible.

“We use smartphones to manage many aspects of our lives, so it’s only natural for digital to be the next evolution in automotive financing.

“With our participation on the AutoGravity app, we are able to utilize this cutting-edge technology to connect with digital-savvy consumers and provide them with NMAC loan and lease preapproval options.”

Andy Hinrichs, founder and CEO of AutoGravity, said: “Our collaboration with Nissan is another great example of how AutoGravity is bringing technology to the forefront of the car-shopping experience.

“As the ‘digital glue’ that brings buyers, dealers and finance providers together through one convenient smartphone app, AutoGravity is enhancing the way consumers find and finance a vehicle — right from the palm of their hands.”

More than 1,000,000 consumers have downloaded the AutoGravity app since it launched in the summer of 2016, collectively requesting over $1 billion in financing.

The AutoGravity platform is available across the US, and NMAC financing options will be rolled out during 2018, starting with California. A nationwide roll-out should be completed by the middle of the year.
