Citroen UK has launched a new scrappage scheme that encourages customers to replace their older, less efficient cars and vans with new, modern and more efficient Euro 6 Citroen models and Wilmoths Group is giving the initiative to drive British motorists towards greener travel its full support.
Customers who have owned a car of any make and model for more than 90 days, which was originally registered before 31 December 2010, can trade it in and receive a scrappage allowance of between £1,600 and £6,400 (incl. VAT) off the price of selected new petrol or diesel-powered Citroen cars. To qualify for the Citroen Scrappage Scheme, all new Citroen 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 Citroen 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 Citroen 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.
