What’s so good about our green car loans?

We care about the environment. We encourage you to care too. That’s why we offer a great discount on our car loans if you choose to buy a more environmentally friendly car like a qualifying hybrid or electric car, so we can work together to lower the emissions in the environment.

We offer loans of 3, 4, or 5 years for new and used ‘green’ cars from a car dealership on either a low variable or fixed rate loan.

Our loans have no ongoing, monthly or annual fees. If you choose a variable green car loan, you’ll also have the option to make extra repayments to your loan fee-free, or redraw from the loan. If you choose a fixed green car loan, you’ll have the option to reduce regular repayments by adding a balloon payment to your loan.

Get started

Apply online today. Or, one of our friendly lending specialists can do the hard work for you and manage your paperwork over the phone.

Either way, we can settle your green car loan quickly so you can start saving thousands (and saving the environment) sooner.

Green Car Loan FAQs

Green cars are usually very fuel efficient and often have lower running costs. At this stage, loans.com.au will only consider hybrid and electric cars to be eligible for the green car discount. To check if your car qualifies for the Green Car discount, chat to us on Live Chat or 13 10 90.

There are many benefits to going green when choosing your next car. Whether it be fewer carbon emissions, fewer trips to the petrol station or potential tax and rego benefits, it’s certainly worth considering a Green car.

You certainly can! A balloon payment is a one-off lump sum that you might agree to pay your lender at the end of your car loan’s term.

This one-off final payment will account for a large proportion of your car loan so your regular car loan repayments can be reduced as a result.

It’s important to note - the balloon repayment option is only available if you get a fixed car loan, and will not be available for the variable car loan.

Green cars are usually very fuel efficient and often have lower running costs. A green car loan is a different type of car loan product which we offer at loans.com.au at a discount to encourage borrowers to opt for a more environmentally efficient choice of car.
