Save pocketbook green when you "go" green. Columbia Credit Union rewards members who
drive environmentally gentle autos by reducing their approved auto loan rate by up to 0.50% APR*.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scores all vehicles based on calculated greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy. The most environmentally friendly vehicles receive SwartWay or SmartWay Elite designation. But it's not just hybrids, many conventional cars, like the Volkswagen Jetta and Chevy Tahoe, can qualify for SmartWay designation.
Your rate discount is based on your vehicle's EPA designation at the time your loan is approved.
To qualify for the E-Go loan discounts, you must opt for electronic statements instead of paper, which extends the environmental impact.
Save 0.25% APR more
Lower your rate even more when you opt for automatic loan payments from a Columbia Credit Union checking account.
Plus, take a 90 day break from payments!
Make a difference
According to the EPA, nearly one third of the pollution in the U.S. is caused by tailpipe emissions from cars and trucks. But you can reduce your impact by choosing a SmartWay or SmartWay Elite vehicle.
