Audi extends scrappage incentive into 2018

Time 4 years ago

AUDI has extended its UK scrappage incentive into the first quarter of 2018.

Originally redeemable for orders taken up to and including December 31, 2017, the scrappage offer will now include orders placed up to and including March 31, 2018.

Diesel vehicles from all manufacturers registered before 2010 that fall within the EU1 to EU4 emissions categories have been eligible since September for an exclusive scrappage contribution towards the purchase price of a new Audi EU6 TFSI petrol, TDI diesel or e-tron plug-in hybrid model. Under the terms of the Audi programme, all qualifying vehicles received in exchange are permanently taken off the road and scrapped.

The majority of new Audi models can be exchanged on this new-for-old basis, with the exception of Q7 TDI, A8, R8 and RS models. Customers will receive a scrappage contribution of between £2,000 and £8,000 towards the purchase price, allocated on a sliding scale based on the category of their chosen model. This replaces any part-exchange value for the vehicle being traded in.

In the case of the A3 Sportback e-tron PHEV, the total contribution is £7,500 if the £2,500 OLEV grant that is separately available for this model is also factored in. In all other cases the incentive isn’t available in conjunction with any other offers.

The scrappage incentive is available to retail customers only and the new vehicle bought must be registered in the same customer name or at the same address as the eligible vehicle being traded in.

Orders have to be registered by June 30, 2018 and are subject to stock availability. Customers can fund their purchases using a finance agreement, but can’t combine the offer with any specific supported Audi Finance promotional rate.
