The Scrappage Scheme has been thrown a lifeline, and Nissan's Trade-in deal lives on too!
Buyers who thought they had missed out on the guaranteed £2,000 Scrappage discount have been given another chance to take advantage of the scheme following the news that the Government has extended the incentive to include an additional 100,000 cars. However, it's still of no use to any owner of a car that's less than 10 years old.
That's where Nissan's Trade-in scheme comes in, guaranteeing a £2,000 minimum trade-in against any British built Nissan for any car aged 8-10 years old.Launched to coincide with the Government's Scrappage Scheme in April 2009, Nissan's Trade-in offer boosts the car buying savings on offer and makes them available to a wider range of potential buyers. New Nissans eligible for the deal include any car built at Nissan's Sunderland Plant, giving buyers the choice of any new Nissan Micra, Note, QASHQAI or QASHQAI+2. As a result, anyone with an 8-year-old car can take delivery of the ultra-efficient Micra supermini for only £6,395.
Combined with the Government's lengthened Scrappage scheme, Nissan's Trade-in deal aims to sustain the uplift in sales enjoyed in recent months. Nissan's UK MD, Paul Willcox comments: "There's no doubt the Scrappage Scheme along with our own Trade-in deal has given, and will continue to give the UK car industry a boost. We're delighted that both incentives can carry on. Best of all, the Nissan Trade-in offer encourages people to buy British, providing vital support for the UK manufacturing industry."
