Eco-Friendly Vehicle Loans

When it comes to the environment, we all need to do our part. But often times, doing the right thing can be cost prohibitive. So we’re doing our part by helping you do your part in lowering your carbon emissions.

If you’re buying a new vehicle and thinking green, you’ll be seeing more green in your pocket with Lake View Credit Union’s Smart Drive loans!

You scoop your loan at incredible rates (Prime to Prime plus 2) when you buy “Tier 1” (those specifically designed for superior environmental performance such as Toyota Prius, Honda Insight and Civic Hybrid and the Smart CDI) or “Tier 2” (those that emit significantly less CO2 than the average car, such as the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Toyota’s Corolla and Yaris, the Ford Escape hybrid and several Volkswagen diesel-equipped models.  Not sure if what you’re looking at qualifies?  Just come in and we’ll talk.

Looking after your bottom line and the environment – just another way Lake View credit Union is “enriching your life.”
