Mercedes has announced a diesel trade-in scheme for UK customers, offering £2,000 off new Euro 6 compliant diesel cars for owners of older Euro 1 to 4 models when they trade in their vehicles.

The scheme will be available until the 31st December 2017, and is a similar move to the one recently revealed by BMW.

As the trade-in offer is open to any Euro 1 to 4 diesel car, most pre-2005 diesels are covered, as long as the owner trading it in has owned it for at least 6 months and it complies with the correct standards.

BMW to launch diesel scrappage scheme with £1700 discounts to upgrade dirtier dervs

  BMW to launch diesel scrappage scheme with £1700 discounts to upgrade dirtier dervs ► £1,700 incentives to trade in older cars ► Must go towards i3, PHEV or low-CO2 carIn a surprise twist to the ongoing environmental debate reshaping Europe's car industry, BMW has announced its own diesel scrappage scheme to incentivise the take-up of low CO2 models.Owners of EU4 or earlier oil-burning cars - not just BMWs - will be eligible for extra discounts 'of up to €2000' when trading up to a newer model. BMW UK has confirmed it will be running the scheme, with up to £1700 off.How BMW's scrappage scheme will workAs ever with a scheme like this, there's a lot of small print.

This account is currently unavailable due to technical/billing issues. Please contact support as soon as possible.

UK car drivers can receive a cash incentive of up to £2,000 off a new Euro 6 diesel , pure electric or plug-in hybrid Mercedes when they trade in their In addition to the introduction of diesel scrappage scheme , German car manufactures also announced free software upgrades to customers to improve

Mild and plug-in hybrid cars are eligible for the £2,000 subsidy alongside any existing government grants. For conventionally powered cars, only new Euro 6 diesel cars are offered with the saving, though.

Mercedes sees clean diesel engines as a key part of its immediate future, and has promised rapid rollout of a new modular diesel engine family in response to questions over diesel emissions.

Smart Electric Drive models are also available with cash off, though the bonus is smaller at £1,000.

On top of the diesel scheme bonus, customers will be offered compensation for Euro 1 to 3 cars, which will be scrapped when traded after having its value assessed by the retailer. Euro 4 diesel owners will receive a straight trade-in price.

Alongside Mercedes and BMW, the Volkswagen Group is expected to announce a similar scheme for older diesel cars in the coming weeks.

Should I buy a petrol van? .
Recent sales figures in the new car market suggest diesel engines are falling out of favour with buyers. But if you need a van, then surely you're stuck with diesel power? That's not necessarily so, as manufacturers are putting petrol-powered vans on sale in the UK.It used to be the case that if you wanted a petrol-powered van, your only option would be to choose a base-spec, car-based van, and even then these were few and far between. Today, that's still largely the case, because you can't buy petrol versions of big-sellers like the Ford Transit, Renault Trafic or Vauxhall Vivaro.
