Škoda launches post-scrappage scheme

Škoda has announced details of its post-scrappage ‘Happy Swapping’ scheme.

Skoda dealers will target owners of vehicles with a 52 registration or older offering them the opportunity to "swap" their old vehicle no matter the make or model for a minimum of £2,000 off anew Škoda.

This will bring the cost of a Fabia down to £7,340 and the Superb from £14,165.

To be able to qualify, cars need to have a valid MOT certificate, with a minimum of three months remaining on it.

They also need to be taxed and insured, driveable and the owner must have a UK address and have owned the car for at least three months.

David Ovenden, head of Škoda, said: “The scrappage scheme was an extremely effective initiative, which gave drivers a strong incentive to replace their old and less efficient vehicles for a brand new one.

"Due to the fuel efficiency and excellent value of our cars, we found many new consumers which haven’t been in the market for a new car for many years, choosing a Škoda.

"With this in mind, we wanted to launch our own programme which would allow those who narrowly missed out on the scrappage scheme to still benefit.

"We are confident it will be a real success.”
