Small car buyers can reduce emissions and save £3,500 with the Kia Scrappage Scheme
Kia is offering a £3,500 scrappage bonus at Westdrive Kia against any car over seven years old
The Kia Scrappage Scheme applies to the purchase of the latest, cleanest Picanto, Rio and cee'd models
Old cars will be destroyed and will not be sold on or traded
Kia Motors (UK) Limited is launching a Scrappage Scheme at Westdrive Kia worth £3,500 to motorists wanting to switch a car over seven years old – echoing Kia’s industry-leading warranty - for an all-new Picanto or an all-new Rio, or cee'd – the brand’s low-emission models.
Available immediately at Westdrive Kia the scheme guarantees the scrappage bonus on Kia’s latest small cars when any old car is traded in for destruction. The bonus is in lieu of all other offers on retail sales only.
Kia cee’d - New to the scheme:
Kia’s President and Chief Executive Paul Philpott said: "A number of scrappage schemes – many applying only to bigger models with higher emission levels - have been launched recently, but the Kia seven year switch scrappage scheme is simple and easy to understand. It applies to all versions of the low-emission Picanto, Rio and cee'd ranges and is guaranteed as long as the buyer of the new car is also the owner of the car being scrapped.
"Our small cars, Picanto Rio and cee'd, have dramatically improved emission levels compared to the previous models – by as much as 73 grammes per kilometre so owners of cars over seven years old can get the latest safety equipment, technology and comfort as well as helping reduce emissions generally and saving themselves a good amount of money in the process," he added.
Kia Rio - Increased saving:
Andy Phillips, Dealer Principal from Westdive Kia says "the Kia Scrappage Scheme is a simple and effective scheme for all of our customers to understand. We look forward to welcoming more people to trade in their cars for the low-emission Picanto, Rio and cee'd ranges."
With the brand expecting to sell at least 4,500 Picanto Rio and cee'd models in the last quarter of 2017 that could reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 1.6 metric tonnes over a similar period of ownership – and that is even if every Picanto, Rio or cee'd simply replaces a seven year old similar model! Older cars of any type are eligible for the scrappage bonus and could mean even better levels of emission reduction.
Kia Picanto - save £2,000
The Kia Scrappage Scheme requires no special measures by customers – as long as the details of the old vehicle owner and the new Kia buyer match the bonus is guaranteed. Westdrive Kia will complete all the paperwork and arrange for the old vehicle to be destroyed through regulated and established channels. The scheme runs until the end of January 2018.
