Westpac launches new green car loan
More and more Australians are looking to buy electric vehicles and many car lenders are now offering competitive rates.
For example, Westpac announced a new Green Fixed Auto Loan for environmentally friendly vehicles.
The new car loan starts at a low 4.99% per annum (comparative rate of 6.21% per annum*) and comes with free additional repayments. You can borrow between $10,000 and $100,000, which is a good range when looking to buy an eco-friendly car.
To qualify for Westpac’s new green car loan, your car must be on its list of eligible cars, be for personal use, locally manufactured or imported by the manufacturer, and be less than seven years old at the time of application.
