Volkswagen Group Ireland brands, Audi, Seat, Skoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are encouraging the uptake of latest generation, lower-emission new cars, hand-in-hand with the removal, of older, Euro 1-4* (pre-2009 – Euro 5) emissions standard vehicles from the Irish car parc, by today launching an attractive EcoGrant offer.
Owners of any diesel vehicle that complies with Euro 1-4 emissions legislation qualify for the EcoGrant offer subject to terms and conditions. They are able to trade-in the vehicle to benefit from incentives, ranging from €800 to €6,500, against a range of Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen Cars and commercial vehicles, if the vehicle is ordered by 31 December 2017. The trade-in vehicle needs to have been owned by the customer for at least six months.
All of their brands new petrol and diesel vehicles now meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, currently the most stringent yet. There is a huge choice of models to choose from under the EcoGrant offer.
In addition to Euro 6 petrol and diesel cars, there are also additional incentives for their range of plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles too.
Lars Himmer, CEO of Volkswagen Group Ireland, said: “In the case of the new Volkswagen eGolf with 300km range, when you combine this offer with the existing government VRT rebate and SEAI grants for electric vehicles, there is a total of €14,000 off the full price of the car. And in the case of the Audi A3 e-tron there is a total of €12,000 off the full price of the car. But what is particularly significant about EcoGrant is that we are actually going to take the qualifying vehicles off the road, with a Certificate of Destruction required to avail of the EcoGrant.”
All details of these offers, including additional financing offers are available from our Volkswagen Group Retailer Network, or in the coming week on the individual Group brand websites – with orders possible from September 8.
