Volkswagen extends scrappage scheme
Volkswagen is now running its scrappage scheme until 2 April 2018, providing drivers with incentives of up to £6,000 on selected new petrol/diesel and plug-in hybrid/electric cars.
Launched at the start of September, the scheme was originally due to run until the end of this year and enables drivers to trade in diesel vehicles of any make/model with pre-Euro 5 emissions standards and registered before 2010. To date, almost 5,000 vehicles have been scrapped.
The highest incentives of £6,000 are offered on the Sharan and Passat GTE while the Passat Saloon and Estate and Arteon qualify for incentives of £5,000.
New models need to be ordered by 2 April 2018 and delivered by 30 June 2018.
