Volkswagen Went To An Unprecedented Step: Will Give A Premium To 10,000 Euros For Old Diesel Cars

Volkswagen Concern is trying to save his reputation after "Dizheygata" in Europe and prevent car sales collapse in 2017. Last week, German autoconcens announced that the software in diesel cars will update at their own expense to improve their environmental performance. But the VW Group decided to go on and today on August 8 announced that it was ready to give a premium for the euro-1,2,3 and 4 passed to the subsidy, subject to buying a new car VW, Audi, Porsche and Skoda. Moreover, prizes will be from 2000 to 10,000 euros.

This money will be able to receive customers of new gasoline and diesel cars Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche and Skoda in exchange for diesel cars of any brands with a high class of exhaust toxicity (Euro 1 – Euro 4).

At the same time, discounts on the purchase of a new car VOLKSWAGEN brand will be from two thousand (for the UP sitar!) up to 10 thousand euros (for the Touareg SUV). For the purchase of new Audi, a bonus is offered from 3 to 10 thousand euros, Porsche – 5 thousand euros.

Additional benefits in the amount of 1000 to 2380 euros can be obtained for the purchase of electric vehicles, as well as cars with hybrid engines or cars operating on gas fuel. At the same time, old cars, delivered in exchange for a premium, will be disposed of.

Of course, to go for such auction of unprecedented generosity Volkswagen decided not from love for his customers. The concern intends to save diesel cars with his proposal. Yes, it is so now there is a question in Germany after "Dieselgita". On the wave of permanent scandals around Machinations with the toxicity of diesel cars, a number of municipalities of German cities are absolutely seriously considering the full ban of diesel cars. And autocontraceans, not only VW trying to prevent, convince the city authorities not to go for such a step.

But one such discussion of the future ban provoked the volume of sales of diesel auto cars of all brands.

"Volkswagen is convinced that clean and efficient diesel engines equipped with the most modern exhaust cleaning systems are indispensable drive technology to achieve a goal to reduce CO emissions?", – Said Sales Director VW Jurgen Putakman (J?Rgen Stackmann).

The cost of this utilization program in Volkswagen is not yet reported, but it is about billion euros. According to the Federal Office for Transport, by the beginning of 2017, about 3.5 million cars were registered in Germany with older diesel engines of Euro grades 1 – Euro 4.

To declare your own utilization programs for older diesel cars in Germany forced other manufacturers. Daimler, BMW, Ford and Toyota announced similar, but lower discounts on the purchase of new cars and the disposal of old diesel cars.

Volkswagen will have to pay the highest price to return customer confidence – say German analysts. But does the municipalities arrange such a decision? – It will become clear in the fall. The situation is also complicated by the fact that in Germany, elections and policies will soon be going to play with voters, speculating on the topic of ecology. But as it turned out, in September in the EU there can be a new scandal around the car market, which will affect millions of cars.
