Five more carmakers launch United Kingdom scrappage schemes as sales falter

Volkswagen scrappage scheme announced

The firms join Ford, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Vauxhall, who have all announced similar schemes in recent weeks, together accounting for around two thirds of the new vehicle market in Britain. However, it's not available in conjunction with any other offer.

Toyota said it was offering up to £4,000 for buyers of a Land Cruiser, adding: "We go to great lengths to make sure [the old] auto is scrapped in the greenest possible way, with everything which can possibly be recycled being extracted by experts".

Nissan is referring to its offer as a "switch scheme" as it doesn't guarantee that all older vehicles traded in will be destroyed.

Volkswagen-owned brands Audi, Skoda and SEAT are also participating in the program.

The scrappage scheme offers for new Audis meanwhile range between £2,000 and £8,000.

The investigation was conducted by the law firm Wachtel, Lipton, Rosen and Katz. Anyone, even a player, can tamper and can be punished.

The scheme is being launched as new regulations over emissions testing come into force on Friday, updating a system that has not been updated for two decades.

Rivals BMW, Mercedes, Hyundai, Vauxhall and Ford have also brought in schemes in the last month offering incentives to buy new, clean cars and replace older, dirtier models. On Friday, the European Union announced tougher emissions tests across the continent, furthering the appetite for these schemes.

"Owners of older vehicles typically don't have the money to spend on a new vehicle, even with these discounts - in normal circumstances it would be far more likely that they would trade up to another, less old used auto".

Provided they have owned their vehicle for at least 90 days, customers could get £5,000 off a new Santa Fe SUV or £2,000 off an Ioniq Hybrid.

Available immediately at all Kia dealers, the scheme guarantees the scrappage bonus on Kia's latest small cars when any old vehicle is traded in for destruction.

All participating manufacturers under the VW Group umbrella will scrap traded-in vehicles and will not sell them on. Orders must be placed by the end of September, with cars registered by January 1.

The scheme is open to all pre-Euro 5 engine cars registered before 2010.

You must be the owner of the part-exchange vehicle and the buyer of the new auto (same name and registered address). Combined with other savings, you could get £4,250 off a new Clio hatchback or £4,000 off the new Scenic and Grand Scenic MPVs.

Dates have not yet been issued by Renault, but most rival offers run until 31 December 2017.
