Audi scrappage to continue in 2018

Published 21 December 2017

Audi has confirmed the extension of its scrappage discount scheme to 31 March 2018. The news means buyers will continue to be able to claim up to £8000 off a new Audi when they exchange their existing pre-2010 diesel car.

Designed to boost car sales and reduce the number of older diesels on the road, the Audi scrappage scheme was initially due to end on 31 December; however, like Volkswagen and Ford, Audi has decided to extend the discount scheme into the first quarter of 2018. 

>> Your guide to all the scrappage schemes currently on offer

Audi’s scrappage scheme allows buyers to trade-in their old diesels to claim between £2000 and £8000 on a new petrol, diesel or e-tron Audi. The trade-in car can be any make or model - not just Audi - but must be registered before 2010 and fall within the EU1 to EU4 emissions categories. 

The offer is available on the majority of Audi’s new car range, with the only exceptions being diesel versions of the Q7 SUV, A8 saloon and high performance RS and R8 models. Under the terms of the scrappage programme all qualifying vehicles received in exchange are permanently taken off the road and scrapped.

The incentive is available to retail buyers only and the new vehicle purchased must be registered in the same name or at the same address as the vehicle being traded-in. The offer applies to new Audi orders placed up to and including 31 March 2018 and registered by 30 June 2018. Car buyers will not be allowed to combine the scrappage offer with any other deals or discounts.
