With Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) forecasting a revival in automobile sales post the decline of the second wave COVID-19, demand for car loans, too, is likely to go up. Low interest rates prevailing in the system will also further the automobile sector’s cause. Industry bodies say retail demand for vehicles in the month of June exceeded expectations. According to Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA), this is due to vaccination drives in the country, low auto loan rates and a forecasts of normal monsoon, among others. Automobile companies are predicting a sharp rebound as they expect pent-up demand to push up June 2021 sales.

Interest rates on a car loan with a repayment tenure of seven years start at 6.80 percent, which is comparable to home loan interest rates.
As in case of other loan categories, public sector banks dominate the list of top ten cheapest car loan deals, with Punjab & Sind Bank leading the chart.
