loans.com.au slashes their car loan rates

family at the beach cheering for new low car loan rates

Online lender loans.com.au has just announced new rate cuts to some of their variable interest rate car loans. 

The new rates came into effect this morning:

  • New car loan rate: The car loan new rate starts at 2.99% p.a. (3.53% p.a. comparison rate) for homeowners looking to buy a new car.
  • Electric car loan rate: This electric vehicle exclusive loan rates start at a low 2.89% p.a. (3.43% p.a. comparison rate) At the time of writing, this car loan is amongst the lowest in Mozo’s database.

loans.com.au’s managing director, Marie Mortimer says that the lender wanted buyers to have the opportunity to finance a car or an electric vehicle under 3%.

“Buying a car has been difficult for some in the past few years given supply issues and some lenders tightening restrictions. We want to help make it easier for borrowers to buy a car and get their keys as soon as possible, and our new 2.99% variable rate [3.43% p.a. comparison rate] does just that,” she says. 

This announcement comes in hand with their recent car buying service, OnlineAuto.com.au, which helps people buy new cars from a dealership

How does loan.com.au’s new rates compare?

For starters, both loans are well below the 5.92% average variable new car loan rate in Mozo’s database. They are both the lowest new car loan and electric vehicle car loan available in our database.

Perhaps even more relevant though is the fact that the new rates are among the very lowest on offer from lenders being tracked in our database. At the time of writing this, no other lender offers car loans below a rate of '3'.

It’s important to note that the 2.99% p.a. (3.53% p.a. comparison rate) car loan is a discounted rate for people who already own a home and are looking to buy a new car.

* 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.
