The maximum term length is five years. 

RACQ allows weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments, with unlimited additional repayments. 

RACQ Group Executive Banking Michelle Winzer said the green car loan was a key initiative which aligned to RACQ’s 2030 strategy of helping Queenslanders transition to a more sustainable future.

“At RACQ we’re working hard to help our members embrace zero emission vehicles and energy,” Ms Winzer said.

“Earlier this year we launched the RACQ Bank green home loan with a rate of 0.79% comparison rate and acquired a majority shareholding in the highly awarded solar company - GEM Energy.

“RACQ also sponsors the Queensland Electric Super Highway, offers five levels of roadside assistance cover for electric vehicles as well as providing insurance products.

"Buyers can also take advantage of the Queensland Government’s $3,000 rebate on new eligible zero emission vehicles with a purchase price up to $58,000 including GST along with continuing discounts on registration, making the transition to electric mobility even sweeter."
