The programme features flexile loan terms with interest rates starting from 5.75 per cent per year.
Along with this, clients can opt for competitive fixed interest rates at only 5.75 per cent per annum in the first 12 months, 6.25 per cent in the first 24 months, or 6.75 per cent in the first 36 months.
“We believe in the power that finance can have to catalyse a positive impact on our communities and the environment. There is little question that environmentally-friendly vehicles are the trend of the future, particularly in the Vietnam context. Through the launch of this preferential loan programme, we hope to encourage the use of those vehicles and impacting the environment,” said Harmander Mahal, head of Consumer, Private and Business Banking for Vietnam and Asia Cluster Markets, Standard Chartered Bank.
