The Toyota scrappage scheme has, since its launch in September 2017, taken more than 7,000 old cars registered up to June 2010 off the road. 40 percent of customers have chosen a fuel-efficient Aygo… and now Toyota’s making it even more appealing by upping the scrappage saving on the city car.
Toyota scrappage scheme customers now get an extra £500 incentive, which takes the total saving up to £2,000. Why the generosity? Because these are outgoing models; the facelifted one will be launched later this year. That’s why the saving is only available in June. Still, it’s a generous saving on a car priced from £8,995.
It means, if you’ve owned your old car for six months or more, a Toyota Aygo could be yours from £6,995.
Toyota has also introduced the Yaris Hybrid onto the scrappage scheme savings list. One of Britain’s most fuel-efficient cars, Toyota’s giving a £1,500 saving on this model; prefer a regular Yaris and you’ll get £2,500 off.
Other scrappage savings include £3,000 off an Auris Hybrid, £2,000 off the Prius and £1,000 off the popular C-HR. All cars must be ordered by 30 June, and delivery must be made before 10 September.
Toyota adds that this might not be the only savings on offer, either: qualifying customers can still access Toyota’s finance offers, including zero percent APR and finance deposit contributions.
65 percent of Toyota scrappage scheme customers have never bought a car from the firm before. Its GB operations director Mark Roden said: “The response to our scrappage initiative has been excellent, with many customers taking the opportunity to move into cleaner and more efficient Toyota hybrid electric models in place of their old petrol and diesel cars.”
