Ford Scrappage Scheme

Ford Scrappage Scheme Drives Air Quality Improvement across UK

  • Ford scheme enables most polluting vehicles to be permanently removed from UK roads
  • Incentives of up to £4,850 make new, cleaner vehicles more accessible
  • Open to owners of any vehicle registered up to and including 1st January 2011 (pre Euro 5) against selection of latest generation Euro 6 petrol and diesel models.
  • Replacing the UK’s population of old petrol and diesel cars alone could save 15 million tons of CO2 annually2 – and drastically reduce other pollutants
  • Unlike incentive schemes introduced by other manufacturers, the Ford scheme includes vans, and actually scraps all the trade-in vehicles
  • carbon monoxide (CO), petrol down 63%; diesel down 82% since 1993
  • hydrocarbons (HC), petrol down 50% since 2001
  • oxides of nitrogen (NOX) down 84% since 2001
  • particulate matter (PM), diesel down 96% since 1993
  • Incentive would apply to vehicles registered up to 1st January 2011
  • The traded-in vehicle must have been registered in the owner’s name for at least 90 days
  • The trade-in vehicle must be scrapped

Applicable to any pre-Euro 5 vehicle, registered before 1st January 2011, the scheme will enable eligible consumers3 to benefit from a scrappage incentive of £4,850 on a variety of Ford models, including the new high-tech Fiesta and Transit Custom, Britain’s most popular car and van respectively. The Ford scrappage program will run to the end of the year and is effective for registrations from April 1st to June 30th 2018.

“Ford shares society’s concerns over air quality”, said Andy Barratt, Chairman and MD of Ford of Britain. “Removing generations of the most polluting vehicles will have the most immediate positive effect on air quality, and this Ford scrappage scheme aims to do just that.

All new Ford EcoBoost petrol and EcoBlue diesel models meet the Euro 6 standard, the toughest vehicle emissions yet. Not only are they cleaner than ever before, but they are also the most efficient, meaning improvements in fuel economy too.

Latest Euro 6 standard4 and new vehicle technologies mean today’s cars produce far lower emissions than previous generations.

Data from the SMMT shows that there are approximately 19.3 million pre-Euro 5 emission level passenger cars on the UK roads today and reducing that number, through scrappage programs, would have the effect of reducing CO2 by 15million tons per year, equivalent to the annual output of approximately three coal-fired power stations5.

Medium to longer-term actions to improve air quality include a plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Transit Custom, due to start trials later this year. The Transit PHEV is planned for commercial introduction in 2019 and is part of Ford’s total investment of $4.5 billion in electrified vehicles by 2020, which also includes a fully electric, long-range SUV.

2CO2 saving based on assumption an average CO2 reduction of 48g/km for pre-Euro 5 passenger cars and a UK car parc of 19.3 million vehicles in 2016, and an average of 10,000 miles/annum. (Commercial vehicles represent a smaller volume, with an estimated 2.5 million pre-Euro 5 LCV’s, but would also significantly contribute to CO2 reduction, and other pollutants, if removed from UK roads).
