Does your car qualify? Ford offers at least £2,000 in scrappage scheme

Ford has become the latest manufacturer to unveil a scrappage scheme - but its offer extends to non-Ford and petrol vehicles.

Up to £7,000 will be available off the price of a new car or van in return for certain older vehicles.

The move follows similar scrappage incentives from Vauxhall, BMW, Mercedes and other manufacturers.

The Ford scheme aims to remove the most polluting older cars from roads, and of course dangle a sales incentive in front of potential ­customers.

Ford's offer is open to all cars registered before December 31, 2009.

It offers £2,000 off applicable trade-ins, plus up to an extra £5,000 customer saving depending on model.

The Ford scrappage programme will run to the end of the year and is effective for registrations from September 1 to December 31, 2017.

"Ford shares society's concerns over air quality", said Ford UK boss Andy Barratt."Removing the most ­polluting vehicles will have the most immediate positive effect on air ­quality, and this Ford scrappage scheme aims to do just that."

Alternatively-fuelled vehicles are growing rapidly.
