A new initiative showing commitment to protect the environment by developing and promoting a range of cleaner vehicles and sustainable mobility solutions is getting the full backing of Wilmoths.
The scheme from DS Automobiles incentivises the replacement of pre-2011 registered vehicles with new DS Euro 6 petrol and diesel models. Up to £5,500 (including VAT) scrappage allowance will be offered to purchasers on selected new DS models – and importantly, all qualifying DS Scrappage Scheme trade-in vehicles will be recycled.
Backing up the DS clean credentials is the PureTech 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine, “International Engine of the Year” in the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre category while BlueHDi engines feature the most effective technologies for reducing the emissions of diesel vehicles, including Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and particulate filter technology.
Customers who have owned a vehicle of any make for more than 90 days, which was originally registered before 31 December 2010, can trade it in and receive a scrappage allowance of between £3,500 and £5,500 (including VAT) depending on the DS model selected. To qualify for the DS Scrappage Scheme, all new DS vehicles must be ordered and registered by 31 December 2017.
All vehicles part-exchanged under the scheme will be scrapped and recycled by CarTakeBack™, the DS brand’s approved vehicle car recycling partner in the UK.
Vehicles recycled by CarTakeBack™ are treated in an environmentally friendly manner, with all hazardous materials such as oil, batteries, and tyres being disposed of responsibly. Processing by CarTakeBack™ will ensure that a DVLA Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued for every vehicle recycled through the scheme.
The DS Scrappage Scheme cannot be used in conjunction with any other existing customer offer, however, retail customers will be able to benefit from dedicated Elect 3 PCP finance at 6.9% APR over 37 or 48 months.
