FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) UK has become the latest manufacturer to launch a scrappage scheme to encourage the trade-in of the oldest and most polluting cars.
The company is offering up to £5,300 off a new, lower-emission car from across its range.
Running until September 30, FCA’s scheme applies to all Euro 1-4 petrol and diesel cars registered before December 31, 2009, regardless of make or model.
With today’s announcement, FCA is following in the footsteps of several other manufacturers who have gone down the same route such as Volkswagen, Renault, Kia and Toyota.
Ashley Andrew, managing director of FCA UK, said: ‘FCA has always been at the forefront of engine technology, so with this offer we plan to take the worst-polluting cars off the road while giving our customers the benefit of driving cars with lower emissions and improved fuel economy.’
Discounts of up to £5,300 will be available on eligible cars from across the group including a saving of £2,125 on a Fiat 500 Pop.
Other vehicles that feature include the Jeep Renegade, which benefits from a discount of up to £3,500, while customers can claim up to £3,000 off an Abarth 124 Spider. The top incentive of £5,300 is redeemable against the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
The scrappage offer is available to retail customers only and is not available in conjunction with any other offers across the FCA range.
