Volkswagen offers scrappage scheme worth up to €6500

The scheme aims to get customers into newer, less polluting cars by offering them discounts if they turn in their older VW diesel vehicle from the Euro 1-4 classifications, which are typically seven or more years old.

Renault's scrappage scheme also sees cars traded in being destroyed and specifically targets Euro 4 vehicles registered by December 31, 2009.

"Owners of older vehicles typically don't have the money to spend on a new vehicle, even with these discounts - in normal circumstances it would be far more likely that they would trade up to another, less old used auto".

If drivers opt for its electrified models, they will also benefit from the government's £4,500 grant for low-emission vehicles, meaning customers could save as much as £10,000 on one of VW's new £32,000 e-Golfs.

The scheme starts from September 8. On Friday, the European Union announced tougher emissions tests across the continent, furthering the appetite for these schemes. "Motorists can dispose of their older vehicles and have access to our cleaner, more efficient model range".

Greenpeace UK clean air campaigner Anna Jones said: "Car makers have already proved they aren't trustworthy so to ensure the industry really does come clean Government should be taking charge of a scrappage scheme and forcing vehicle makers to contribute".

Carmakers are keen to promote their green credentials in the wake of the VW emissions scandal but sales in September, one of only two occasions each year when a new licence plate series is introduced to indicate the age of the auto, normally account for almost 20 percent of full-year demand in Britain.

The Kia scheme is open until the end of the year. Kia has committed to scrapping all of the cars it receives through the scheme, rather than selling them on.

Thousands of polluting vehicles will be taken off the road under plans for a major scrappage scheme run by one of the major carmakers in Britain.

Combined with existing manufacturer offers, buyers could save up to £3,600 off the all-new Micra hatchback, or £5,000 off the X-Trail large SUV, if the auto is switched between 1 and 30 September 2017, and the new vehicle is registered by January 2018.

Toyota confirmed that the scrapped vehicles will be handled at authorised treatment facilities, and at least 95% of the auto components by weight will be recycled. Combined with other savings, you could get £4,250 off a new Clio hatchback or £4,000 off the new Scenic and Grand Scenic MPVs.

Its scheme operates until 31 December 2017.
