Which cars qualify as green?
Green cars come in all different colours, not just green! What they have in common is that they are good for the environment. To qualify as a green car, a vehicle needs to have significantly lower than average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions when compared to other cars of its size.
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change. When you drive a green car, you are helping to reduce impact of climate change and protecting the environment. As a bonus, green cars are very fuel efficient, so you are likely to enjoy lower running costs.
Your car is likely to be on the list if:
It is new or a demonstration vehicle
It is an electric vehicle
We offer both variable and fixed rate car loans. Fixed rate car loans give you the certainty of knowing what your repayments will be for the term of your loan, while protecting you against any rate increases. Whereas variable rate car loans offer more flexibility, such as the ability to make additional payments and withdraw them when you need.
Principal & interest and balloon payments
A Principal and Interest loan
We offer flexible principal and interest repayment schedules for our car loans, including weekly, fortnightly, or monthly options.
A "balloon" payment
A balloon payment option allows approved customers to opt for lower monthly repayments during the term of the loan, followed by a larger residual value - the balloon payment - at the end of the term
