Google May Help You Finance Your 1st Electric Car

Originally published on EV Obsession.

Google’s extensive suite of online tools will soon include a new interactive car loan payment estimation tool, according to recent reports.

Google is testing a new loan interactive calculator for car payments. This was spotted by both Dr Pete Meyers and Kyle Sanders recently. It looks and feels a lot like the Google mortgage calculator feature that Google launched in February of this year. As you can see, you can enter the loan amount, the interest rate and the period of the loan, and then Google will show you your monthly payments. You can also toggle to see the maximum loan amount, as well.

Will we soon see car loans through Google or maybe a way to buy, lease or finance your new car through Google Comparison AdWords Ads? Maybe?
