How long does the scheme last?

The Toyota GB scrappage scheme is available for new vehicles ordered between 26 May 2020 and 30 September 2020, and registered by 31 December 2020.

Do I need to own a Toyota to qualify?

No you don’t. The scheme is open to any car or light commercial vehicle so long as it is more than seven years old and you have been the registered owner of the vehicle for more than six months. There is no restriction on fuel type on your trade-in vehicle.

Can I trade in my motorcycle or motorhome as part of the scheme?

No, the scheme only applies to cars and commercial vehicles.

Are any Toyota models excluded from this offer?

Offer excludes Aygo X grade, Yaris Active grade, Mirai, Hilux Active grade and all-new Proace City. All-new Yaris (launching September 2020) and GR Yaris will also be excluded.

Can I use the scheme as well as other existing Toyota offers?

The scrappage allowance offer can be used in conjunction with finance offers but is not available with any other customer saving programme or finance deposit allowance. The best thing to do is speak to your local retailer about your exact requirements.

What happens to my old car after it is traded in?

In accordance with the law concerning scrappage schemes, your trade-in will need to be professionally disposed of so that it cannot go on the road again. Toyota goes to great lengths to make sure your car is scrapped in the greenest possible way. Everything which can possibly be recycled is extracted by experts. We partner with a company called Autogreen to achieve this. Your dealer will handle all of this for you.

All vehicles taken off the road through the Toyota scrappage scheme will be processed at authorised treatment facilities managed by Autogreen. After the safe removal of all pollutants and the recovery of retrievable parts, shredding and recovery will be handled by EMR. Together these processes will meet the legal requirement of a minimum 95% recycling by vehicle weight.
