Scrappage scheme launched at Jennings Kia

To help improve air quality Kia has announced that it is introducing a scrappage scheme that offers a £2,000 bonus when any seven year or older car is traded in. Matching the industry leading seven year warranty, the Kia Scrappage Scheme applies to the purchase of the latest and cleanest Picanto and Rio models.

Kia Scrappage scheme extended until 31.03.2018

Available at Jennings Kia’s dealerships in Stockton and Washington, the scrappage bonus is available when any seven year or older car is traded in for approved destruction. The scrappage allowance is in lieu of all other offers on retail sales only.

Kia is expected to sell over 4,500 Rio and Picanto models in the final quarter of 2017 and lead to a saving 1.6 metric tonnes over the period if Rio or Picanto replaces a similar 7 year old model. Greater savings could be achieved if larger polluters are removed from the UK roads.*

Speaking about the introduction of the Kia scrappage scheme, Paul Philpott, Kia President and Chief Executive commented “A number of scrappage schemes – many applying only to bigger models with higher emission levels - have been launched recently, but the Kia seven year switch scrappage scheme is simple and easy to understand. It applies to all versions of the low-emission Picanto and Rio ranges and is guaranteed as long as the buyer of the new car is also the owner of the car being scrapped”. He added “Both our small cars, Picanto and Rio, have dramatically improved emission levels compared to the previous models – by as much as 73 grammes per kilometre so owners of cars over seven years old can get the latest safety equipment, technology and comfort as well as helping reduce emissions generally and saving themselves a good amount of money in the process.”

All paper work and scrappage arrangements will be arranged by Jennings Kia on a customer’s behalf. All a customer has to do is use a seven year or older car as a part exchange.
