Michelle Winzer, executive banking at RACQ Group, said the green car loan is a key initiative aligned with RACQ’s 2030 strategy to help Queenslanders transition to a more sustainable future.

“At RACQ, we work hard to help our members adopt zero-emission vehicles and energy,” said Ms. Winzer.

“Earlier this year we launched RACQ Bank’s green home loan at a benchmark rate of 0.79% and acquired a majority stake in highly awarded solar company GEM Energy.

“RACQ also sponsors the Queensland Electric Super Highway, offers five tier roadside assistance for electric vehicles and insurance products.

“Buyers can also take advantage of the Queensland Government’s $3,000 rebate on new zero-emission vehicles up to $58,000 inclusive of GST and ongoing registration discounts, making the transition to electric mobility even more enjoyable. “
