Hyundai has joined the list of motor manufacturers that are offering a scrappage scheme.

Running from 1 September 2017, Hyundai’s scheme targets older and more polluting vehicles with the Euro 1-4 emissions standard engine which were registered before 31 December 2009.

Regardless of make or model, Hyundai will offer owners the opportunity to scrap or trade in their old car for a brand-new Hyundai, with a range of four-figure incentives available across the line-up.

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “Hyundai is committed to improving efficiency and lowering emissions. We’ve already launched the new IONIQ – the world’s first car to offer Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid and full Electric powertrains all in one body style – and we were the first manufacturer to bring a production fuel cell vehicle to the market in 2014.”

This innovative new petrol and diesel scrappage and trade-in scheme offers up to £5,000 off the price of a new model and seeks to improve air quality across the UK by making it easier and more affordable than ever to drive a new, lower emission car.

The maximum discount is £5,000 off the price of a Sante Fe, with £3,500 off the Tucson, £4,000 off the i30, £3,000 off the i40, and £2,000 for the IONIQ Hybrid, i20 and ix20. i10 will also benefit from £1,500 saving.

Under the terms of the scheme, the most polluting, those with Euro 1-3 emissions standard will be scrapped, while owners of a Euro 4 model do not have to scrap their car and can trade-in their vehicle for nearly any model across the Hyundai range.
