PSA Group has joined the scrappage scheme scrum with a range of discounts of up to £7,000 on cars and vans across its ranges until the end of the year.
The announcement that Citroën, DS and Peugeot brands would offer a scheme which will see traded-in vehicles taken off the road and scrapped, comes within 24 hours of similar initiative launched by Mazda and Suzuki.
Peugeot will offer a range of offers span £1,750 off a 108 supermini to £6,000 off a 508, with greater incentives in place for the commercial range, larger Boxer vans attracting £7,000.
David Peel, managing director at Peugeot UK said: “The announcement of a Peugeot scrappage scheme will put a new car within reach of many motorists driving older cars and we are confident that this enticing offer will help put safer, greener cars on the road.”
DS customers, who have owned a vehicle of any make registered before then end of 2010 for more than 90 days to become eligible for the PSA Group scheme, can receive a scrappage allowance of between £3,500 and £5,500.
All vehicles part-exchanged under the scheme will be scrapped and recycled by CarTakeBack™, the DS brand’s approved vehicle car recycling partner in the UK.
The range of offers spans £3,000 off a DS 3 to £5,500 off the range-topping DS 5 hatchback.
Citroën’s incentives present customers with up to £6,400 off new cars and up to £7,000 on selected new panel vans.
Consumer offers on cars range from £1,750 on a C1 hatchback to £6,400 on the C3 Picasso MPV.
Bek Hassan, Citroën UK’s managing director, said: “This important new initiative is fully in line with Citroën and PSA Group commitments to develop and promote latest-generation, more efficient models for the benefit of our customers and the environment.”
