RENAULT relaunched its scrappage scheme today, letting customers save up to £5,000 on a new car.
The scheme, which covers the full range of the French manufacturer’s cars, means customers can save £9,500 off the list price of a new all-electric Renault Zoe when the existing government plug-in car grant of £4,500 is added to the scrappage support of £5,000, bringing the cost of a new Renault Zoe down to £13,420. Retail customers will also receive a free wallbox to charge their Zoe at home.
Any car or light commercial vehicle, from any manufacturer, registered before December 31, 2011 is eligible for the relaunched scrappage scheme as long as it’s been registered to the owner for at least 90 days. The savings can then be put towards any of Renault’s cars.
The Twingo, Clio and Mégane are also eligible for savings through Renault’s scrappage scheme, as are the Scénic and Grand Scénic.
Renault’s SUV range – comprising the Captur, Kadjar and Koleos – is included in the scrappage scheme as well.
The allowances are as follows: Zoe (£5,000), Kadjar (£3,000), Clio and Captur (£2,000), Twingo (£1,500), Koleos, Mégane family and Scénic family (£1,000).
The scrappage scheme runs until January 7, 2019 and the new Renault has to be registered by March 31, 2019. It can be used in conjunction with Renault’s £500 test-drive offer but not with any other finance or cash offers. The scrapped car will be permanently taken off the road.
