Peugeot has signed the required agreement with BERR (Business and Enterprise Regulatory Reform) on the Car and Van Scrappage scheme announced in April 2009. Offers for customers that qualify for the Scrappage Incentive Scheme, and a number of example offers, including cars and vans, are available for consideration on Peugeot's website.
From 18th May 2009, owners of cars that are more than ten years old will be able to have them scrapped, thus qualifying for an extra £1,000 (funded by the Government) towards buying a brand new vehicle. Best of all, Peugeot's Scrappage Scheme contribution of £1,000 is extended to all customers, making the current incentives a substantial customer saving.
A good example of this new car offer is the Peugeot 207 - Europe's best-selling low CO2 car of 2008 (in both the sub 121g/km and 131g/km sectors) - which, in the well-equipped Verve specification, is available to Scrappage Scheme customers for just £8,740. This has a Scrappage Scheme customer saving of £3,300 off the original retail price of £12,040 - made up from current retail consumer offers of £1,300 and £2,000 (£1,000 from Government and a further £1,000 from Peugeot). Peugeot will also extend their £1,000 to customers without a car to scrap, making the Peugeot 207 Verve available at £9,740.
Other cars in the range are also available and, for individuals scrapping their ten-year-old car, examples include the Peugeot 107 Urban Lite, available at £5,945, while customers can also save a considerable £4,300 on the Peugeot 308 Verve
The scheme runs from 18th May 2009 to 28th Feb 2010, or until the £300 million Government funding for the scheme runs out.Published 14 May 2009
