Any vehicle built to emissions standards that applied before 2010 (pre-Euro 5) will be applicable and eligible customers* can benefit from a scrappage incentive of between £2,000 and £7,000 on a variety of Ford cars and commercial vehicles. The Ford scrappage programme will run to the end of the year and is effective for registrations from September 1st to December 31st 2017.
“Ford shares society’s concerns over air quality”, said Andy Barratt, Chairman and MD of Ford of Britain. “Removing generations of the most polluting vehicles will have the most immediate positive effect on air quality, and this Ford scrappage scheme aims to do just that.
“We don’t believe incentivising sales of new cars goes far enough and we will ensure that all trade-in vehicles are scrapped. Acting together we can take hundreds of thousands of the dirtiest cars off our roads and out of our cities.”
All new Ford EcoBoost petrol and EcoBlue diesel models meet the Euro 6 standard, the toughest vehicle emissions yet. Not only are they cleaner than ever before, but they are also the most efficient, meaning improvements in fuel economy too.
Data from the SMMT shows that there are approximately 19.3 million pre-Euro 5 emission level passenger cars on the UK roads today and reducing that number, through scrappage programs, would have the effect of reducing CO2 by 15million tons per year, equivalent to the annual output of approximately three coal-fired power stations**.
Medium to longer-term actions to improve air quality include a plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Transit Custom, due to start trials later this year. The Transit PHEV is planned for commercial introduction in 2019 and is part of Ford’s total investment of $4.5 billion in electrified vehicles by 2020, which also includes a fully electric, long-range SUV.
