To encourage the uptake of latest generation, lower-emission new cars we are launching a new scrappage scheme for Euro 1 to 4 emissions standards vehicles. Under the terms of the ŠKODA Scrappage Incentive all qualifying vehicles will be permanently taken off the road and scrapped.

If you own a diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation, and was registered before 2010, you qualify for the ŠKODA Scrappage Incentive. Our Incentives range from £1,500 to £4,000 and are available to use against the majority of new ŠKODA models, when ordered by 31 December 2017 (see further detail, below). Please note – you must have owned the trade-in vehicle for at least six months.

All new ŠKODA petrol and diesel models meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards.
