Peugeot, Citroen, Suzuki, Mazda and DS Automobiles have all announced new scrappage schemes which plan to reduce the number of old polluting cars on the road.
Peugeot is offering motorists the opportunity to swap their car or van for a greener new model at a discount ranging between £1,750 and £7,000 across the range.
All petrol and diesel-powered passenger cars and vans registered before 31 December 2010 are eligible for the scrappage discount, which can be redeemed against any Peugeot from the 108 supermini to the award-winning all-new 3008 SUV and the Boxer Van.
All vehicles traded in under the scheme will be scrapped to help remove less safe, higher polluting vehicles from the roads.
Citroen is offering the owners of cars and vans of any make and model, which have been owned for over 90 days and registered before 31 December 2010, the chance to trade it in and receive a scrappage allowance of between £1,600 and £6,400 off the price of a selected newer, cleaner Citroen model.
The brand is also offering between £3,000 and £7,000 (excl. VAT) against the purchase price of selected new Citroën panel vans
To qualify for the Citroën Scrappage Scheme, all new Citroën 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 Citroën brand’s approved vehicle car recycling partner in the UK.

The incentive programme, which runs until the 30 September 2017, offers private retail new car buyers up to £2,000 off the price of selected brand-new Suzuki models when they trade in a car registered before the end of 2009. Any make of petrol, diesel or hybrid car can be traded in although they must be pre-Euro 5 emissions standard.
