Renault joins list of manufacturers with scrappage discounts

It follows the launch of Toyota's scrappage scheme yesterday, through which the Japanese company is offering owners of cars more than seven years old up to £4,000 off a range of newer vehicles, including its low-emissions hybrid models.

Nissan has joined the ranks of auto manufacturers offering scrappage deals - and it includes an innovative used vehicle scrappage deal on top of the regular new vehicle incentives.

The scrappage part exchange must be Euro 4 standard or older, have been registered by 31 December, 2009 and owned in the customer's name for more than 90 days.

But it's not just the LEAF attracting an incentive, with discounts of up to £5,000 available across Nissan's range, and even a £2,000 incentive for grabbing a used 24kWh LEAF.

As carmakers clamour to introduce "scrappage schemes", Nissan has unleashed its own programme of incentives - and buyers of used Nissan Leaf electric cars stand to benefit. A free Home Charging Unit worth £279 also provided in the offer. The company says this makes it possible to finance a used Nissan Leaf electric vehicle for less than £100 a month.

An important distinction between the switch scheme and other current trade-in programmes is that Nissan's is not a "scrappage" scheme. It means there are plenty of secondhand models in the approved used Nissan network: the firm is using these models to offer its scrappage added bonus.

Demand for passenger EVs has risen significantly in recent years.

The Leaf is Britain's best-selling electric auto and has been on sale since 2011. This offer, it says, will lower the prohibitive cost barrier into a fully electric vehicle.
