Ford – the U.K.’s top-selling passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle brand – is launching a new scrappage scheme to take older, less fuel- efficient vehicles off U.K. roads, replacing them with cleaner and more fuel-efficient new Ford models.
“Our last Ford scrappage scheme saw 25,500 customers trade-in their older vehicles for Ford models equipped with our latest emissions and fuel-efficiency technologies, contributing to reducing CO2 and other emissions on U.K roads,” said Andy Barratt, managing director, Ford of Britain. “We expect our new Ford scrappage scheme that we’re launching on July 1 to also have a positive impact on the environment.”
The Ford scrappage scheme enables customers to save £2,000 (including VAT) on selected Ford passenger vehicles and £2,000 (excluding VAT) on selected Ford commercial vehicles when they take their existing vehicle to a Ford dealership. The Ford dealership will then arrange for the vehicle to be scrapped at an Authorised Treatment Facility and a Certificate of Destruction issued.
To be eligible for the scrappage discount, customers must order their new Ford vehicle between July 1, 2019, and September 30, 2019, and have their vehicles registered between July 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020.
Any make of passenger vehicle or commercial vehicle is eligible for the Ford scrappage scheme provided it was registered on or before December 31, 2012, and must have been owned by the customer for 90 days or more before scrapping.
The scrappage saving can be used against the purchase of Ford commercial vehicles (excluding Transit Connect and Ranger Raptor), and Ford passenger vehicles (excluding KA+, Fiesta Trend, all Zetec derivatives, Mustang, and all ST derivatives (Fiesta ST-1, ST2 and ST-3; ST Performance Edition; and Focus ST).
“To help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of our vehicles, we are committed to making more efficient, lower-impact vehicles and technologies accessible at scale. Our new scrappage scheme not only helps to remove some of the oldest vehicles from the parc, but also introduces customers to the latest fuel-efficient technologies,” said Barratt.
*From 2018, vehicles classified as “historic vehicles” by the DVLA are not scrapped automatically.
