Metro Green offers discount to encourage cleaner vehicle choices

Major commercial auto and equipment lender Metro Finance’s Metro Green initiative is working to increase the uptake of low emissions passenger and light commercial vehicles.

Metro Finance, which has an extensive broker network across Australia, is offering a 0.7 per cent discount on the standard rates offered to customers who purchase lower emissions passenger and light commercial vehicles that meet predetermined standards.

Metro Finance is providing its brokers with statistics on vehicles and equipment that qualify for the discount, so they can easily demonstrate to customers why a ‘green’ choice makes a good choice.

Brokers using the Metro Finance Metro Green website would be able to quickly identify if a vehicle qualifies for the discount. If not, the system would recommend alternate vehicles that do qualify.  

The CEFC has committed up to $50 million in finance for the program, which is part of its broader focus on reducing transport-related emissions through the Sustainable Cities Investment Program.
