Citroen is launching a trade-in incentive scheme which offers customers £2,000 for trading in vehicles registered before 2000 or £1,000 for vehicles registered between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2002.
The new scheme is available on orders placed between now and April 30 and registered by the end of June 2009. The trade-in deal is in addition to any existing cashback offers and the cashback can be used towards any deposit.
The deal applies to Citroen’s C4, C5, C6, C-Crosser SUV and C8 ranges. The deal will not be available on C1, C2, C3, C3 Pluriel, C3 Picasso or Berlingo First Multispace models.
The scheme at a glance
* £2,000 – to customers with a vehicle registered before 2000 (vehicles will be scrapped via an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF).)
* £1,000 – to customers with a vehicle registered between 1st January 2000 and 31st December 2002. (There is no obligation to scrap these vehicles.)
Xavier Duchemin, managing director of Citroen UK, said: “We have seized this proposed government initiative and extended its scope to launch our own scrappage incentive scheme.
“The Citroen trade-in deal allows us to pass on significant savings to new car buyers, and also helps reduce the number of older, more polluting vehicles on the roads.”
