Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has made a late bid to join the scrappage scheme scrum with the offer of up to £6,500 off a new Outlander PHEV.
Customers trading in a vehicle with EU1 to EU4 emissions specifications, registered before January 2010, are eligible to participate and will benefit from an allowance of £4,000 on the plug-in hybrid SUV.
In combination with the government’s existing £2,500 allowance for plug-ins and EVs its list price (from £34,304) falls to below £28,000.
Lance Bradley, managing director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “As we have demonstrated with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, we are committed to helping drivers enjoy more environmentally-friendly motoring without asking them to compromise day-to-day practicality and we’re delighted to offer a scrappage initiative that provides an enhanced opportunity for even more customers to enjoy the benefits of a newer, safer, cleaner vehicle.”
By choosing the Outlander PHEV Mitsubishi claims customers will benefit from CO2 emissions of 41g/km and up to 166 mpg (official combined cycle).
The Mitsubishi Mirage supermini benefits from a £2,000 scrappage allowance while Mitsubishi offers a £3,000 scrappage allowance against the ASX SUV and £3,500 on the practical seven-seat Outlander diesel.
Its scrappage offer - which stipulates that traded-in vehicles must be "permanently scrapped" - is available until December 28th.
