MITSUBISHI Motors in the UK has become the latest company to extend its scrappage scheme.
Now available until March 27, 2018, it aims to encourage customers to scrap their older, higher-emission vehicle and buy a new, low-emission Mitsubishi.
In addition to giving motorists extra time to take advantage of its scrappage scheme, Mitsubishi Motors has also increased the scrappage allowance on the seven-seat Mitsubishi Outlander diesel, pictured, to £5,000.
A scrappage allowance of £4,000 is also available to customers wanting to buy the ultra-low-emission Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. By choosing the four-wheel-drive SUV, customers not only benefit from CO2 emissions of 41g/km and up to 166mpg but also the £2,500 plug-in car grant for a total saving of £6,500.
The scheme offers a £2,000 scrappage allowance on the low-emission supermini Mitsubishi Mirage, which has CO2 emissions from only 99g/km, and a £3,000 scrappage allowance on the ASX – Mitsubishi’s compact SUV.
It is open to vehicles of any make and model registered before January 2010 to their current owner for at least six months before the customer’s new car registration date.
All cars traded in under the scheme will be permanently destroyed.
