The Nissan QASHQAI and Nissan Micra

Helping the car buying public to help the British car industry, Nissan has extended its buy-British Trade-in offer for an extra three months.

Originally available until 30th June 2009, the offer provides a £2,000 minimum trade-in against any of its Sunderland built models for owners of cars aged between 8-10 years old. Following a significant boost in sales and a consistently high demand for the deal, Nissan has extended the offer until 30th September 2009.

As Britain's biggest car maker, Nissan has a diverse range of British built models to choose from, including any new Nissan Micra, Note, QASHQAI or QASHQAI+2. With the help of the Trade-in offer, anyone with a car that's 8 years old or older can take delivery of the chic British built Micra for as little as £5,995.

Nissan's UK MD, Paul Willcox comments: "We're delighted to be able to extend our Trade-in deal for an additional three months - and delighted the car buying public is taking advantage of the Nissan offer. Our £2,000 minimum Trade-in provides what the Government's Scrappage scheme fell short of offering: a real incentive to buy a British built car and a guaranteed trade-in value for owners of eight, nine and ten year old cars."

It's no surprise that 3,000 new Nissan Micra buyers have placed orders so far, benefitting from a £2,000 discount as a result of either the Scrappage or Trade-in offers.

With both the Trade-in offer and the Scrappage scheme in place, Nissan has seen a substantial increase in demand. Orders taken as a result of the schemes total more than 5,000, while the Nissan QASHQAI was the ninth best selling car in the UK in May 2009. By extending the Trade-in offer, Nissan hopes to further increase market share while also giving a valuable boost to the British car industry.
