Axis Bank Car Loan EMI Calculator
You can calculate the EMI you need to pay based on the following formula
EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^N-1];
where, P, R, and N are the variables, which means the EMI value will change every time you change any of the 3 variables.
What do the three variables mean?
P = Principal amount, which is the original amount lent to you by the bank. The greater your loan, higher the EMI you pay the bank
R = Rate of interest, which is the rate at which interest is charged on the principal loan amount. This value has a bearing on your EMI amount and it is important to compare rates of interest before opting for a loan
N = number of years for which the loan has been taken i.e tenure. Since the loan repayment is done every month, the tenure is calculated in months and not years. So, in case you have a 5-year period to pay off a loan, the tenure is 60 months.
When taking a loan to buy a car, one needs to know the amount of EMI one can afford. That would play a big role in selecting the car model and also deciding on the loan amount. To find out the EMI, you need to pay on a car loan, visit the Axis Bank website and go to the Axis Bank car loan EMI calculator. The Axis Bank car loan EMI calculator has sliders, which let you adjust the values. Here is how to calculate car loan EMI using the Axis Bank car loan calculator.
Step 1: Enter the loan amount either manually or use the slider bar.
Step 2: Input the interest rate.
Step3: Input the loan tenure (in months)
As soon as you put in these values, the calculator displays the EMI to you.
You can click on the calculate amortization button to get a monthly amortization schedule and also the total EMI payable.
As you select a longer tenure, the EMI goes down, but the total interest you pay goes up. For example, let us say you are availing a car loan of Rs 6 lakh at 9.5 per cent per annum interest rate and tenure of 3 years. The EMI will be Rs 16, 017 while you have to pay an interest of Rs 76,594. If you select a tenure of 5 years, the EMI drops to Rs 10,501, but the total interest payable is now Rs 1,30,056.
