HYUNDAI Motor has extended and enhanced its scrappage and emissions reduction scheme that offers customers up to £5,000 off the price of a new car.
Originally set to end on December 31, 2017, it will now run until March 31, 2018, targeting older and more polluting vehicles with Euro 1-4 emissions standard, ie, cars registered before December 31, 2009. Regardless of make or model, Hyundai will offer owners the opportunity to scrap or trade in their old car for a new Hyundai, with a range of incentives available across the line-up.
As an example, the newly introduced Ioniq plug-in hybrid guarantees a £3,500 customer saving when using the £2,000 Hyundai scrappage offer combined with the government-funded £1,500 plug-in car grant.
The all-new Kona, pictured, which is Hyundai’s latest SUV offering, has also been introduced, with a £1,750 incentive available on all variants. Santa Fe and Tucson remain on the scheme, with savings of £5,000 and £3,500 respectively.
i10, i20, i30, i40 and ix20 continue to be available and all savings on the scrappage and vehicle emissions scheme will be supported by 3.9 per cent APR from Hyundai Finance this month and in February.
Under the terms of the scheme, the most polluting – those with Euro 1-3 emissions standard – will be scrapped, while owners of a Euro 4 model can trade in their vehicle for the vast majority of models across the Hyundai range.
Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: ‘Hyundai is fully committed to improving the efficiency of its product line-up and to lowering emissions.
‘Our scrappage and emissions reduction scheme has made the change into new, cleaner and more technologically advanced vehicles even easier for over 2,700 customers since we launched it back in September 2017, so we are very pleased to announce the extension of the scheme until March.’
He added: ‘The scheme has been enhanced to introduce not just our brand-new small SUV, Kona, but also the award-winning Ioniq plug-in hybrid. Alongside the Ioniq hybrid, it’s now even easier for customers to make that step from a conventional ICE vehicle into one with an electrified powertrain.’
