Mitsubishi has launched its version of the scrappage scheme, providing an additional £4,000 off the price of a new Outlander PHEV for those trading in Euro 4 or older car.

This means a total discount of £6,500 is available to new Outlander PHEV buyers when the scrappage allowance and £2,500 UK Government Plug-in Car Grant are combined.

The Outlander PHEV is the UK’s most popular plug-in car, and joins other Mitsubishi Motors models in the deal – though the company is offering its largest scrappage allowance on its greenest vehicle.

Buyers of the Mirage will receive a £2,000 scrappage allowance, the ASX offers £3,000, while the diesel Outlander is discounted by £3,500. These allowances are available for new car buyers until 28th December 2017.

Trade in vehicles can be any make or model of car – petrol or diesel – and be registered before January 2010, complying to Euro 1 to Euro 4 emissions standards. Models must have been registered to the current owner for at least six months, and all cars traded in are due to be scrapped.
