Credit Union enhances “green” vehicle loans

RALEIGH ó(BUSINESS WIRE)ó State Employeesí Credit Union (SECU) is enhancing its “green” vehicle loan program to include vehicles that have a higher rated fuel economy. Beginning in September, SECUís green vehicle loan, which features a 1% lower interest rate than its other new or used vehicle loans, will allow the financing of new and used vehicles that have a combined city and highway miles per gallon rating of 28 mpg.
Previously, the Credit Unionís “green” vehicle loan program was limited to the purchase of a new hybrid or alternative fuel vehicle.
Vehicles with these advanced technologies are also still eligible as long as they meet the 28 mpg combined rating. This beneficial program change will encourage members to help the environment and save money.
SECU first launched its “green” vehicle loan program in December 2006. As fuel costs have dramatically increased, vehicles with a higher rated fuel economy are growing in popularity and are becoming the vehicles of choice for many consumers. Phil Greer, Senior Vice President of Loan Administration states, “SECU is constantly evaluating our products and services to stay current with member needs. Given todayís economy, fuel prices are playing a major role in the types of vehicles our members are choosing to purchase and finance. There are a number of vehicles on the market that have high fuel economy, but because a large percentage were not defined as hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles, they did not fit within the original parameters of our ígreení vehicle program. It was obvious we needed to revise our program and give members a better loan option to purchase a fuel-efficient vehicle. SECUís program now allows even more members to save on loan costs and ultimately keep their money where it belongs ó in their pockets!”
