Toyota scrappage scheme offers £4000 discounts

Posted September 02, 2017

The scrappage scheme follows similar offers from other manufacturers including Ford, BMW and Vauxhall as they try to patch up the industry's reputation in the aftermath of dieselgate.

With the Hyundai scrappage and emission reduction scheme, drivers can enjoy a discount on a new vehicle when they trade in a auto registered before 31 December 2009.

This offer can be used on top of any other offers from the dealer/manufacturer/finance company. Meanwhile, Toyota is providing to ₤ 4,000 off models over 7 years old.

"They are getting some of these older diesel vehicles off the roads".

The schemes cover the Volkswagen and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brands, as well as Audi, Seat and Skoda.

The full Golf range, for example, enjoys a £4,000 scrappage incentive saving, while the new Polo comes with a £2,800 saving.

The scheme marks increased efforts by the auto manufacturer to recover from the emissions scandal, where the software in cars manipulated emissions tests.

Available immediately at all Kia dealers, the scheme guarantees the scrappage bonus on Kia's latest small cars when any old auto is traded in for destruction. On Friday, the European Union announced tougher emissions tests across the continent, furthering the appetite for these schemes.

Volkswagen is offering discounts on new cars in return for taking older, more polluting diesels off the road.

All participating manufacturers under the VW Group umbrella will scrap traded-in vehicles and will not sell them on.

The offer covers nearly all Toyota passenger cars and light commercial range, from the Aygo city vehicle to Land Cruiser and Hilux. An Auris Hybrid qualifies for savings of £3,500, while customers will be offered savings of £2,500 off the price of a new Yaris Hybrid.

Scrappage vehicles must be registered by 31 December 2009 and be Euro 4 standard or older.

In the case of an electric Golf the grant sum involved swells to €14,000 when combined with existing SEAI grants and VRT rebates.

Renault's scrappage scheme is open to all cars and vans with a pre-Euro 5 engine registered before 2010 and owned by the customer for at least 90 days.

Customers will still benefit from Renault's generous customer offers of either 4.9 per cent April (for PCP deals) or 0 per cent April (hire purchase) along with two years' free servicing on cars.

The scheme runs until the end of September 2017, and Renault has committed to scrapping all vehicles it receives under it.
