Mazda is offering customers buying a car before the end of 2019 the chance to save up to £6,000 when they trade-in an older car through its newly-launched Scrappage Scheme Upgrade Plan.
Any petrol or diesel model car registered before December 31, 2010, can be traded-in at a Mazda franchised dealership in exchange for one of a wide range of brand new sub 143g/km models as part of the scheme which could help reduce the UK’s CO2 emissions footprint.
All car purchases made under the scheme have to be completed in conjunction with a Mazda Conditional Sale or PCP offer with 4.5% APR representative on terms up to 48 months, however.
The brand said in a statement that the scheme served to highlight its “commitment to the environment and lowering CO2 emissions” as part of its Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030 vision.
Mazda UK sales director, Peter Allibon, said: “The Mazda Scrappage Scheme has grown increasingly popular since its introduction in 2017.
“Not only can drivers save up to £6,000 off their new Mazda on the Upgrade Plan, but they will also be able to benefit from lower emissions and improved economy thanks to Mazda’s clean and efficient Skyactiv Technologies.”
Last month, meanwhile, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan gave low income and disabled Londoners the chance to swap into a lower emitting new vehicle with the extension of the capital’s £2,000 vehicle scrappage allowance scheme.
While Mazda is yet to launch a hybrid of full electric vehicle (EV), its Scrappage Scheme Upgrade Plan will provide access to the all-new Mazda3 with the innovative Skyactiv-X engine, albeit with a saving of £3,000.
Featuring Mazda’s revolutionary Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) technology and Mazda M Hybrid mild hybrid system, the two-litre, four-cylinder Skyactiv-X 180PS engine claims CO2 emissions from as low as 96g/km.
