Volkswagen Scrappage Upgrade Scheme

Get up to £6,000 off new car

What is the scheme?

The Volkswagen Scrappage Upgrade Scheme offers you the chance to trade in your old diesel car (registered on or before 31st December 2009) featuring a Euro 1 - 4 emissions standard engine, whatever make and model it is, and receive up to £6,000 towards a brand new 67 plate Volkswagen.

If you aren't sure when your car was registered, you can verify this here. You can also check the emission standard of your vehicle here to ensure that you are eligible for the scheme.


What happens to my old car?
