Scrappage scheme

Which manufacturers are offering a UK scrappage scheme?

Some of the biggest manufacturers selling cars in the UK are offering incentives for motorists to scrap their old petrol or diesel models. We explain in detail what different brands are offering right now to help you choose the best scheme for you. Take a look at some of the car manufacturers getting involved in the UK scrappage scheme.

2017 UK Scrappage Schemes

Car manufacturers in the industry are keen to encourage motorists to move into new cars with modern, cleaner petrol and diesel engines.

There is particular interest in encouraging motorists to move on from older diesel-run cars in order to reduce the impact on the country’s air pollution, particularly in cities. Newer petrol and diesel cars for the most part also offer far better running costs anyway, which is attractive for motorists, but of course having the budget for such cars is another matter.

Quite a few car brands have now launched a diesel car scrappage scheme in the UK, to better persuade more motorists to trade in their old diesel (or petrol) car, in exchange for a substantial saving on a fresh replacement. Find out more about Euro emissions standards here.

Here we round up in alphabetical order which car manufacturers currently offer a UK scrappage scheme and summarise the details of what’s offered from each brand. Take a look at some of the best new car scrappage deals currently available in the UK.

Please check each manufacturer for the exact details of their scheme, as they are subject to change. Also, subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on the latest scrappage scheme news and guides.
