FRANKFURT: German carmaker Volkswagen is launching a scrappage scheme for older diesel vehicles in Great Britain, the company said on Friday.
Through a new scheme designed to get older polluting cars off the road, potential buyers can get incentives of between £1,800 (SR8,691) and £6,000 for a new Volkswagen if they trade in an older vehicle.
For vehicles that are seven years old, or fitted with an engine conforming to the Euro 5 emissions standard, Volkswagen is offering up to £4,000 off a VW Golf, or up to £10,000 off an electric Golf when combined with a British government grant.
A similar trade-in scheme exists in Germany. Volkswagen has come under pressure to clean up emissions ever since it admitted two years ago to cheating pollution tests using manipulated engine management software.
