RENAULT LAUNCHES NATIONAL SCRAPPAGE SCHEME TO JUMPSTART IRISH CAR INDUSTRY
Renault Ireland announced the launch of a national scrappage scheme for the Irish market on 18th September. Irish motorists can cash in on a €1,500 scrappage scheme which is redeemable on the purchase of any new Renault car and light commercial vehicle, when you scrap your car with any Renault dealer nationwide. The scheme is for motor vehicles of all makes and models that are over eight years old. The offer comes in addition to a trade-in allowance also in place across the Renault range.
Renault has successfully implemented similar schemes in other European countries with both consumers and the local car industry benefitting from the scheme. While the Irish Government stalls on introducing a much needed scrappage scheme, Renault and its Network have seized the initiative to meet the needs of Irish motorists.
Commenting on the announcement, Eric Basset, Managing Director, Renault Ireland, said, “The Irish car industry is struggling in the current economic climate due to diminished consumer purchase power and the lack of available credit. We have successfully run similar schemes in other European countries and Renault and its Network are delighted to be spearheading a scrappage scheme for Irish motorists.”
For those looking for quality, safety and ecology, this is the best opportunity to buy a new car at the best prices. Full details of the Renault Ireland’s national scrappage scheme can be found on www.irishscrappage.ie .
