LEV Car Loan

Bank Australia’s discounted car loan rate for hybrid or electric vehicles.

Changes to personal lending applications from Monday 16 August

Personal lending applications for Bank Australia customers.

Bank Australia customers can now apply for personal loans and credit through their internet banking. To apply, log in to internet banking, click the ‘apply’ tab and choose the product you’re looking for. We'll be in touch to organise your application.

Due to high demand, we’re unable to take your application by phone right now. Please call us if you need help.

Not a Bank Australia customer? We’ll be able to help you soon.

Due to high volume of home loans, personal loan and credit card applications, we’re not accepting new applications from people who aren’t already a customer of ours.

We’re in the process of scaling up to meet this demand so we can resume online applications as soon as possible. We’ll keep you up to date on when applications will resume.

Why go greener?

The cars on our roads account for over 11% of all greenhouse gas emissions in Australia. By choosing an electric or hybrid car, you’re helping to lower emissions and protect our world. 

The LEV Car Loan is our way of saying thanks on behalf of the planet. We want to reward you for choosing an LEV (low emission vehicle) with a lower interest rate and no fees.

^Carbon emissions: We calculate emissions associated with each car loan based on average vehicle emissions figures and average mileage figures for Australian vehicles (sources: National Greenhouse Accounts Factors and Australian Bureau of Statistics). For each car loan, we use the average vehicle emissions factor multiplied by the share of the year that the car loan was active. To access this rate, we require a Goods Security Agreement on the car. The car must also be registered in the name of the borrower.
