Scrappage or no Scrappage – the finance deal car buyers get from Nissan is the same.

After criticism from the media of the total-cost benefit of the Government’s Scrappage scheme, Nissan can confirm that its finance offers deliver the same rates and incentives for those participating in the car buying incentive as for those who don’t have a scrapper to trade-in.

Trust and transparency are the key to any Nissan car purchasing plan, so the £2,000 Scrappage saving is always a full £2,000 discount** no matter how customers choose to fund their new car. In fact, with 0% finance offered on five Nissan models including the Qashqai, the savings on offer are greater in the second quarter of 2009 than they were in the first, when the Scrappage scheme had yet to be confirmed.

What’s more, there’s a Nissan offer to suit non-scappage buyers too. Deals include up to £700 off the list price of the British built Micra*, a free diesel upgrade for the Note* and 0% deposit on PCP finance packages for both the Micra and Note.

While only vehicles over 10 years old are eligible for the Scrappage scheme, Nissan’s Trade-in deal** also offers a £2,000 minimum trade-in against any of its Sunderland built models for owners of cars aged between 8-10 years old*.

* offers end on 30 June 2009
** All scrappage and trade-in savings shown are based on the manufacturers recommended retail list price.
