Australia has seen an increase in electric vehicle sales over the last few years, especially now that increasingly affordable options are available. According to ABS data in 2021, electric vehicle registrations increased by 62% from the previous year.

To match this rapidly growing demand, Community First Credit Union has launched a Green Car Loan, specifically designed for brand new electric and hybrid vehicles.

The Community First Green Car loan offers a competitive rate of 3.99%p.a. (4.99% p.a. comparison rate*), a low $5 monthly fee and a $295 application fee. The loan also offers terms of up to seven years with the option of fixed or variable rates, offering consumers flexibility.

John Tancevski, chief executive of Community First Credit Union, said of the loan, “We have introduced our Green Car Loans when governments in Australia have started recognising the value of electric and hybrid vehicles.”

NSW leading the charge with electric car revolution

In July 2021, the New South Wales Government passed the Electric Vehicles Bill that provides almost a half a billion-dollar investment in tax cuts and incentives to NSW motorists to switch to electric vehicles.

As part of its Electric Vehicles Strategy, the NSW Government aims to have electric vehicles making up more than 50% of the new car market by 2030. Additionally, in September the NSW Government launched the strategy by waiving stamp duty for eligible EVs under $78,000.

“For families looking to upgrade their car to retirees planning a road trip around Australia, these government incentives will make electric vehicles accessible and more affordable for all NSW residents,” said Tancevski.

“By introducing our Green Car Loans with a competitive rate of 3.99% p.a. (4.99% p.a. comparison rate*), we are providing affordable funding for motorists to take advantage of electric and hybrid vehicles.”

*WARNING: The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a personal loan. The comparison rates displayed are calculated based on a loan of $30,000 for a term of 5 years or a loan of $10,000 for a term of 3 years as indicated, based on monthly principal and interest repayments, on a secured basis for secured loans and an unsecured basis for unsecured loans. This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
