BMW 'scrappage scheme' to offer £2000 for older diesels

Buyers of low-emission BMWs and Minis can get £2,000 off when they trade in their old diesel model.

The manufacturer offer applies to older diesel BMW or MINI models that meet Euro 4 standards or less, nearly all pre-2005 vehicles.

Graeme Grieve, chief executive of BMW Group UK, said: "BMW offers the widest range of low emission vehicles of any manufacturer".

More than 80% of BMW's range now records Carbon dioxide emissions of 130g/km (NEDC) or less while MINI has almost 70% of vehicles in this lower emission category.

PGA Championship: Rory McIlroy has winning history at Quail Hollow
Rory McIlroy showed he is well equipped to overpower any golf course on the practice ground at the US PGA Championship . Away from that superstar duo, world No.1 Dustin Johnson will badly want to end a frustrating majors year on a high.

The announcement follows the news last week of a similar scheme in Germany, agreed at a Diesel Forum meeting by German government officials and the country's auto industry that also saw BMW, along with Daimler, Opel and Volkswagen, agree to offer free NOx-reducing software updates for cars in Germany.

Following the government's recent announcement that the sale of pure petrol and diesel vehicles will be banned from 2040, many have questioned how drivers will be encouraged away from traditional fuels.

"We know in the early phases that people still need some incentive to make the jump to fully electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles and that is why we are delighted to announce this new allowance".

Discounts of up to €10,000 (£9,022) are being offered to German owners who want to scrap their old vehicles.
