Shortly after the UK Government's vehicle scrappage scheme went in to operation, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has extended its participation to include vehicles of 5 through to 10 years old to maximise its already impressive success with the scheme.

Mitsubishi Motors' UK Director of Sales and Marketing, Toby Marshall said, "we have had immediate and resounding success with the Government's scrappage scheme, with over 21% of our dealers' May orders coming through the scheme. To help maximise on this momentum, we have decided to launch our own scheme, which means a customer can bring in a car as young as 5 years old to any participating Mitsubishi dealer."

With over 17% of new-car customer enquiries now coming via the scrappage scheme route, Mitsubishi has also confirmed that customers can choose from a range of finance plans to suit their pocket with loan periods of 12 months to 5 years, deposits starting at 10% and interest rates as low as 0%.

Furthermore, Mitsubishi has secured £100 million through its finance arm, Finance Mitsubishi, to help get customers into the car of their dreams - with or without the help of the Government's 'scrappage' allowance.
