Ford introduces scrappage scheme
Ford has launched its ‘New For Old’ Scrappage Scheme where customers can save between £2,000 and £4,950 when trading in a car or between £3,650 and £7,000 off a commercial vehicle. Ford are promoting the fact that this will reduce CO2 emissions and improve fuel economy. Ford also assures customers that they will manage the scrappage of old vehicles responsibly.
Vehicles must have been registered before 1 January 2010 and have been owned by the customer for over 90 days; this covers all pre Euro 5 engines. The scheme includes both petrol and diesel engines, unlike some other recent schemes, and also all makes and models. New vehicles need to be registered between 1 September and 31 December 2017.
