Mecu's GoGreen Car Loan

Here’s a curious marketing move. Take out a car loan with Mecu and on your behalf they’ll pay Greenfleet to plant and manage 17 native trees. These are calculated to absorb the 4.3 tonnes of CO2 your car will probably emit over a year. The plantings are also said to improve soil salinity and water quality issues. And should you select a car with a high greenhouse rating for its fuel consumption your loan percentage will also be lowered. (A used car older than 5 years would attract a loan rate of 12.75% . While a new car or demonstrater under 1000 kms, with an 8+ rating could see you paying only 7.49%). Good to see an up-front hip pocket reward, for making the move to fuel efficiency. ::Mecu
