Citroen's New Car Scrappage Scheme


Citroen's New Car Scrappage Scheme

Citroën UK’s new Swappage Scheme means customers can trade in their old vehicles and receive a discount of up to £5,000 on Citroën passenger models until 31/12/2019.

The Citroën Swappage Scheme is available to customers who have owned a car – of any make and model – for more than 90 days, which was first registered before 1 January 2013. This car can be traded in and in return the customer will receive a Swappage discount of £3,000 (including VAT) on C1 or £5,000 (including VAT) across the rest of the Citroën passenger vehicles range, including the stylish C3 Supermini. 

The scheme comes after the Mayor of London introduced a similar scheme to aid low income and disabled Londoners to scrap older cars. Qualified applicants can receive £2,000 to scrap a Euro 4 petrol car (older than 2005), or Euro 6 diesel car (older than September 2015)*. Therefore, Citroën customers who live in one of 32 London Boroughs that meet the criteria for both schemes COULD receive up to £7,000 in savings. 

CarTakeBack, the French brand’s official car-recycling partner, has designed its Citroën recycling package so that dealerships across the UK can dispose of cars traded in through the scheme easily and efficiently. If the trade in vehicle is to be scrapped, the dealer portal allows customer to have their existing car collected from one of three locations: their nearest dealership, the comfort of their own home or even from their work address. 

Eligible Citroën Swappage Scheme customers can also benefit from a variety of products from PSA Finance.^ 

About Ultra-Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) and the car scrappage scheme in London

The Mayor of London has launched a car scrappage scheme to help low income and disabled Londoners scrap older vehicles. Eligible applicants can get £2,000 to scrap a Euro 4 petrol car (older than 2005), or Euro 6 diesel car (older than Sept 2015). Applications must be processed prior to the scrapping of the car and proof of scrappage must be provided prior to payment of the £2,000.

So someone living in 1 of the 32 London Boroughs, who meets the eligibility criteria could receive £2,000 from Transport for London and £5,000 (inc. VAT) from Citroën, so a total saving of £7,000. CarTakeBack supports the ULEZ car scrappage scheme and can be used to scrap qualifying vehicles.

About Citroen’s Swappage Scheme

The Citroën Swappage Scheme discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer; however, all other offers remain available. Car Swappage discounts shown are for eligible Citroën Swappage Scheme Retail customers only, inclusive of VAT, and reflect customer savings against the manufacturer’s recommended OTR (on the road) price. This offer is available from 1 November to 31 December 2019 only and on all passenger vehicles that are in stock. These savings are only available to eligible customers who trade in or scrap (via CarTakeBack) their qualifying vehicle first registered in the UK before 1 January 2013.
