NEW MITSUBISHI SCRAPPAGE SCHEME ENCOURAGES GREENER MOTORING WITH £6,500* OFF THE OUTLANDER PHEV OTR PRICE

Sep 25, 2017

CIRENCESTER – Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is encouraging customers to scrap their older, higher-emission vehicle and purchase a new, low-emission Mitsubishi by launching a new scrappage scheme with immediate effect.

Customers trading in a vehicle with EU1 to EU4 emissions specifications, registered before January 2010, are eligible to participate and to reinforce Mitsubishi’s commitment to a more sustainable future, the largest allowance of £4,000 is given to customers wishing to buy the ultra-low emission Outlander PHEV.

By choosing this advanced 4x4 SUV customers will not only benefit from CO2 emissions of 41g/km and up to 166 mpg (official combined cycle) but also a £4,000 scrappage allowance as well the £2,500 plug-in car grant (PiCG) for a total saving of £6,500.

The Mitsubishi Mirage supermini, which has CO2 emissions from 99g/km and extremely high standard specification, benefits from a £2,000 scrappage allowance which, when combined with Mitsubishi Motors’ competitive 5.9% APR PCP finance rate which is available on all Mitsubishi scrappage deals, means that upgrading to a brand new, low-emission supermini is now more attainable than ever.

The scheme also offers £3,000 scrappage allowance against the ASX SUV and £3,500 on the practical seven-seat Outlander diesel, and is available from September 23rd until December 28th 2017.

Commenting on the new Mitsubishi scrappage scheme Lance Bradley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “As we have demonstrated with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, we are committed to helping drivers enjoy more environmentally-friendly motoring without asking them to compromise day-to-day practicality and we’re delighted to offer a scrappage initiative that provides an enhanced opportunity for even more customers to enjoy the benefits of a newer, safer, cleaner vehicle.”

Notes to Editors:

The scheme is open to EU1 – EU4 vehicles of any make and model registered before January 2010 and registered to their current owner for at least six months before the customer’s new car registration date.  All cars traded in under this scheme will be permanently destroyed.

Scrappage scheme is applicable to eligible Mitsubishi models registered between September 23rd and December 28th, 2017.

The scrappage saving is not available in conjunction with any other customer offers. Only one scrappage payment can be claimed for each vehicle scrapped.

Available to retail customers only. For customers in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, other offers available – contact local dealer for more information.

*Total saving includes the £4,000 scrappage allowance and the government’s £2,500 Plug-in Car Grant

Customers can check eligibility via the Mitsubishi website.
