Chevrolet Scrappage Scheme

Currently there is no official Chevrolet scrappage scheme active. The previous scrappage scheme ended on 30/06/10 and has not been restarted. Chevrolet drivers looking to scrap their cars or vans are recommended to compare prices to maximise the payout from scrapping their vehicle.

What is the Chevrolet scrappage scheme?

The last Chevrolet scrappage scheme was actually known as the ‘Swappage Scheme’ and was an extension of the Government-backed scrappage scheme, which ended in March 2010. The scheme allowed customers to benefit from a £2,000 discount after trading in a car that was at least six years old.

Is the Chevrolet scrappage scheme coming back?

Chevrolet no longer has a presence in Europe, having been withdrawn in 2013, so any official Chevrolet scrappage scheme is highly unlikely to make a return.

How did the scrappage scheme work?

Chevrolet’s scrappage scheme was merely an extension of the 2009 Government scrappage scheme (which itself was extended to the end of March 2010), and was available to customers until June 2010. Anyone owning a car that was between six and ten years old, provided they had owned it before the 1st January 2010, was eligible for the scheme, and had a £2,000 discount applied to their purchase of a new Chevrolet, excluding the smaller Spark or Matiz models.

Petrol Cars:

It was possible to trade in any car of any type, be it petrol or diesel, in this scheme, as it was only age that was the limiting factor on eligibility.

Diesel Cars:

It was possible to trade in any car of any type, be it petrol or diesel, in this scheme, as it was only age that was the limiting factor on eligibility.

Electric Cars:

As the Chevrolet scrappage scheme ended in June of 2010, electric cars were not included as they were still very much in their infancy, with the first commercially-available plug-in EV launching six months later in the shape of the Nissan LEAF.

Do I qualify for a Scrappage Scheme Offer?

Just because you can’t take your Chevrolet back to a dealer as part of a scrappage scheme anymore doesn’t mean that you won’t qualify for any scheme. There are currently three location-based clean air zones of which you could be eligible.

  • London – available to London residents with a vehicle that is not ULEZ compliant
  • Birmingham – available to those who work 18 hours a week or more within the Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone, who earn £30,000 a year or less and have owned a non-compliant vehicle since 10 September 2018
  • Scotland – Available to owners of non-compliant vehicles who live within a 20km radius of a Scottish Low Emission Zone.
