Scrappage registrations pass through the 250,000 mark

Wed, 09 Dec 2009

The SMMT has confirmed that 250,000 cars have been registered under the scrappage scheme, helping more than quarter of a million people out of ten-year-old cars into brand new ones.


Latest figures show that scrappage orders accounted for 21.6 per cent of all registrations in November, with superminis taking 72 per cent of all registrations under the scheme. The announcement comes the same week as the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) updated its scrappage orders statistics.


As we reported in late November, there were errors within the data and some sales had been double-counted. This has now been corrected and the BIS website now states that there were 282,898 scrappage orders to 29 November. The previous update (before the data was 'cleansed') stated that 268,841 cars were ordered by 2 November. Less than three quarters of the allocated funds have been used, which means that buyers should be able to benefit from the scheme well into early 2010.
