As part of its environmental program, Volkswagen is offering its German customers of up to €10,000 on purchasing a Euro 6 compatible model.
The incentive applies if an older diesel model (Euro 1 to Euro 4 standards) is scrapped at the same time. The amount is dependent on the model purchased.
In addition, thew german marque is offering a future incentive of between €1,000 and €2,380 to customers purchasing a vehicle with an electric, hybrid or natural gas powertrain.
Thomas Zahn, Head of Sales and Marketing Germany:
“Volkswagen is giving a clear signal for the renewal of the vehicle fleet in Germany. With our environmental incentive, we are actively promoting the changeover to highly advanced gasoline and diesel engines to the Euro 6 emissions standard. Customers purchasing a new Golf receive an environmental incentive of €5,000. That corresponds to the scrappage incentive paid in 2009, without the state subsidy.
"If you opt for an e-Golf, you will receive an additional future incentive of €2,380. This means that we are doubling the manufacturer’s share of the existing state environmental incentive program, from which customers will receive a further amount of €4,380. The total support available to customers is therefore €11,760.”
