KIA Mo­tors (UK) Lim­ited is launch­ing a Scrap­page Scheme at Downeys worth £2,000 to mo­torists want­ing to switch a car over seven years old – echo­ing Kia’s in­dus­try-lead­ing war­ranty – for an all-new Pi­canto or an all-new Rio – the brand’s low-emis­sion mod­els.

Avail­able im­me­di­ately at all Downeys Kia, New­tow­nards, the scheme guar­an­tees the scrap­page bonus on Kia’s lat­est small cars when any old car is traded in for de­struc­tion. The bonus is in lieu of all other of­fers on re­tail sales only.

Kia’s Pres­i­dent and Chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul Philpott said: “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.

“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,” he added.

Si­mon Trainor, Sales Man­ager from Downeys says: “the Kia Scrap­page Schem is a sim­ple and ef­fec­tive scheme for all of our cus­tomers to un­der­stand. We look for­ward to wel­com­ing more peo­ple from the County Down area to Downeys to trade in their cars for the low-emis­sion Pi­canto and Rio ranges.

With the brand ex­pect­ing to sell at least 4,500 Pi­canto and Rio mod­els in the last quar­ter of 2017 that could re­duce CO2 emis­sions by as much as 1.6 met­ric tonnes over a sim­i­lar pe­riod of own­er­ship – and that is even if ev­ery Pi­canto or Rio sim­ply re­places a seven year old sim­i­lar model! Older cars of any type are el­i­gi­ble for the scrap­page bonus and could mean even bet­ter lev­els of emis­sion re­duc­tion.

The Kia Scrap­page Scheme re­quires no spe­cial mea­sures by cus­tomers – as long as the de­tails of the old ve­hi­cle owner and the new Kia buyer match the bonus is guar­an­teed. Downeys New­tow­nards will com­plete all the pa­per­work and ar­range for the old ve­hi­cle to be de­stroyed through reg­u­lated and es­tab­lished chan­nels. The scheme runs un­til the end of De­cem­ber 2017.
