The Green Vehicle Loan offers lower rates and extended terms to help make financing that hybrid, electric, alternative fuel or high fuel economy rated vehicle easy. With so many options for green vehicles available, we designed this loan to fit every make and model that fits your lifestyle. At VSECU not only do you get one of the lowest rates in Vermont, but you can earn even better rates by taking advantage of relationship discount pricing. Whether you’re home on the computer, or at the dealership, VSECU makes it simple to use our online application. To make things even easier, we also work with participating dealers who can take your loan application on the lot and determine if you qualify for a vehicle loan from VSECU.
Burlington Electric Department (BED) Customers: Buying an electric vehicle? Boost your savings by taking advantage of a partnership between VSECU and BED. Apply for a rebate from BED and finance your car with a low-interest Green Vehicle Loan at VSECU. We will apply your BED rebate up front to reduce your monthly payments and overall financing costs so you won’t have to wait for your rebate in the mail or refinance the loan later. We will also apply funds you may receive from the federal tax credit to your loan principal and re-amortize your loan for free. Learn more.
Fixed rates give you easy to manage, predictable payments that can help make getting into a green car even easier.
Discounted rates make it easier for you to buy a hybrid, electric, or other high fuel economy vehicle.
