Volkswagen to introduce diesel trade-in scheme in UK

Volkswagen

BERLIN: The Volkswagen Group is to roll out a diesel trade-in scheme in the UK, the full details of which will be revealed “shortly”, according to a group spokesperson.

Volkswagen has just confirmed plans to introduce a trade-in scheme in Germany, revealing initiatives for the Volkswagen and Audi brands. More Volkswagen Group marques are expected to confirm similar schemes soon, before specific UK plans are confirmed – presently, the firm’s brands are considering its offers.

In Germany, owners of diesel cars through Euro 1 to 4 emission standards will be offered trade-in bonuses for new cars; the trade-in offer does not exclusively relate to VW Groups cars, owners of any brand of vehicle qualify for the trade-in incentive. It’s a similar scheme to the one revealed by BMW last week, and follows and announcement of a free software update to reduce emissions on Euro 5 and 6 cars.

Discounts of up to €10,000 (£9,022) on a new Volkswagen Group car are on the table for German owners who want to scrap their old vehicles, confirmed by both Audi and Volkswagen’s plans.
