Renault offers £5k to scrap your dirty old car for a clean new electric Zoe

Renault ZoeRenault remains determined to get dirty old cars off our roads, so has relaunched its scrappage scheme with better-than-ever savings of up to £5,000.

Even better still, the hefty £5k list price discount applies to the zero-emissions Renault Zoe electric car, making it one of the most effective air-cleansing scrappage incentives out there right now.

Add together Renault’s scrappage saving and the government Plug-in Car Grant, and the price of a new Zoe drops down to from £13,420. That’s for the upgraded R110 model too, which has more power and a real-world electric range of 186 miles.

Renault chucks in a free Wallbox for home charging, although it doesn’t actually chuck in batteries – they still have to be rented, although buyers can pay more to get a Zoe with batteries included.

The Zoe is Europe’s best-selling electric car, but what if you’re not quite ready to go electric and prefer to follow today’s trend rather than tomorrow’s? Buy a Renault SUV: there’s £1,000 to be saved on a Koleos, £2,000 on a Captur and £3,000 on a Kadjar. Both the conventional Megane and Scenic offer a £1k saving.

City car fans can get £1,500 off Renault’s most affordable model, the Twingo, while the popular Clio supermini has a £2,000 scrappage discount.

All Renault asks for is that the old car (or van) was registered before 31 December 2011, and has been registered to the owner for at least 90 days.

The Renault scrappage offer runs until 7 January 2019, and all cars must be registered before the 19-plate registration kicks in – so, before 31 March 2019.

Scrappage savings can’t be used with any other finance or cash deal, although buyers are eligible for Renault’s £500 test drive offer – taking savings up to £5,500 on the electric Zoe, then. And the sense of doing a good deed is guaranteed, too: the scrapped car will be “permanently taken off the road,” adds Renault.

Sorry, classic car fans.
