SMALL CAR BUYERS CAN REDUCE EMISSIONS AND SAVE £2,000 WITH THE KIA SCRAPPAGE SCHEME
•Kia is offering a £2,000 scrappage bonus against any car over seven years old
•The Kia Scrappage Scheme applies to the purchase of the latest, cleanest Picanto, Rio, cee'd and Stonic models
•Old cars will be destroyed and will not be sold on or traded
Kia Motors (UK) Limited originally launched a Scrappage Scheme worth £2,000 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 – the brand’s low-emission models. Thi has recenty been extended by Kia to include the Stonic and the cee'd.
Available immediately at all Kia dealers 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’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, cee'd and Stonic ranges and is guaranteed as long as the buyer of the new car is also the owner of the car being scrapped.
“All of our small cars 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.
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. The Kia dealer 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 June 2018.
