First Tech CU Offers SmartWay Discount For Green Car Loans
BEAVERTON, Ore. – First Tech CU said yesterday it is offering members a .25% annual percentage rate reduction when financing a green car, as part of a partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program.
There are more than 1,500 emission- and fuel-friendly cars, including hybrid and hydrogen vehicles, on the SmartWay program list.
First Tech’s discount is good on all SmartWay certified cars with a maximum of 100,000 miles.
Before heading to the dealership, members can pre-qualify for the .25% APR discount by applying for a First Tech green auto loan at any one of the $2.2 billion credit union’s 17 branches in Oregon and Washington. Members can also work directly with their local CU Direct Lending dealership or Autoland representative and request First Tech financing and receive the same discount as in-branch.
