Ford announces £2,000 scrappage scheme for pre-2010 cars
Ford is the latest car company to launch an incentive for UK consumers to trade-in cars over seven years old, by offering £2,000 off a new model. Unlike schemes by BMW and Mercedes, which are only for diesels, Ford will also accept petrol cars. "Removing generations of the most polluting vehicles will have the most immediate positive effect on air quality, and this Ford scrappage scheme aims to do just that." Ford said by combining the scrappage incentive with other standard offers, customers could receive up to £4,000 off a car or £7,000 off the cost of a van. The UK government has come under pressure to announce a vehicle scrappage scheme for diesel cars, after it was found that air quality thresholds in cities were repeatedly being breached.
