PASADENA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Southern California-based Wescom Credit Union has announced a Green Vehicle Loan discount for the purchase or refinance of a qualifying electric or hybrid vehicle. This 0.25% APR* discount is on top of Wescom’s already low auto loan rates.

“Wescom’s mission is to build better lives for Southern Californians and through this new Green Vehicle Loan discount initiative, we are able to promote sustainability while having a positive impact on our members’ wallets,” noted Jeff Smrcka, Vice President, Consumer Lending of Wescom Credit Union. “We know that many of our members – particularly our Millennial and Gen Z members – are concerned about the environment, so offering this corresponding loan discount is an additional way we can assist them in living their values every day.”

Anyone who qualifies to open an account with Wescom may apply for an auto loan with Wescom to take advantage of this 0.25% APR loan discount on the purchase or refinance of a qualifying electric or hybrid vehicle, with a minimum loan amount of $10,000. Wescom membership is also open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Southern California, family members of a Wescom member, and individuals affiliated with, or support, UCLA outside of Southern California. Additional key benefits of buying or refinancing vehicles with Wescom include:

  • No payments for 90 days
  • Up to a 7-year or 84-month term to help lower the monthly payment
  • An additional 0.50% APR discount by insuring the vehicle with Wescom
  • Contactless car-buying services offered through TrueCar or Autoland

Wescom is proud to be a forward-thinking lender offering a loan discount to help individuals afford the purchase or refinance of a Green Vehicle.
