Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched an attractive scrappage scheme encouraging the exchange of latest generation, lower-emission new vehicles, in tandem with the removal of older, Euro 1-41 emissions standards vehicles from the UK.
Owners of diesel vehicles that comply with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation qualify for the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles scrappage scheme2. They can trade-in their vehicles and benefit from incentives – ranging from £1,000 to £2,000 – against the majority of new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles vans and passenger carriers (see table below) that they order by 31 December 2017. The trade-in vehicle needs to have been owned by the customer for at least six months.
All new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles petrol and diesel models meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, currently the most stringent yet.
The majority of new models can be exchanged on this new-for-old basis, with the exception of Amarok, California and Transporter Sportline. The offer runs in conjunction with existing retail offers. For example, combine the £2,000 scrappage scheme incentive on the new Crafter with the current retail offer and there’s an attractive saving of up to £4,000.
Summary of offers on Euro 6 petrol and diesel models:
|Model||Scrappage Scheme saving|
|Caddy Panel Van & Caddy Life (SWB & LWB)||£1,000|
|Transporter Panel Van, Kombi & Window Van||£2,000|
California, Transporter Sportline (panel and kombi) and Amarok are excluded from the scrappage scheme
