CUPRA Scrappage Scheme
Currently there is no official CUPRA scrappage scheme active. CUPRA drivers looking to scrap their cars or vans are recommended to compare prices to maximise the payout from scrapping their vehicle.
What is the CUPRA scrappage scheme?
As a relatively new brand on the car market, CUPRA has not had its own scrappage scheme to date. The last scrappage scheme in which CUPRA badged cars were involved was the SEAT scheme of 2017, as this was when CUPRA was merely a sub-brand of the Spanish manufacturer. This scheme ran until the end of 2017 and was specifically aimed at removing the highest polluting diesel-powered cars from the road.
Is the CUPRA/Seat scrappage scheme coming back?
There are currently no suggestions that a scrappage scheme for CUPRA is on the horizon.
How did the scrappage scheme work?
The SEAT scheme of 2017, of which CUPRA was part of before becoming a standalone brand in 2018, was available to anyone buying a new SEAT who owned a diesel-powered vehicle that was built to Euro 4 emissions standards or earlier. As long as the person utilising the deal had owned the car for at least six months prior, then they could have saved up to £3,500 depending on the model of SEAT they were purchasing.
The 2017 scrappage scheme was only open to diesel powered cars, meaning no petrol cars could be traded in under the scheme.
The scheme was intended purely to remove the highest-polluting diesels following the infamous Emissions Scandal of 2014. Any diesel built to Euro 4 standards or earlier could be traded in.
SEAT did not provide any electrification on its models until 2020 – and even then it was only on the Leon and as a plug-in hybrid. As such, there were no electric options in the 2017 scheme.
Do I qualify for a Scrappage Scheme Offer?
Just because CUPRA has not yet held its own scrappage scheme, and doesn’t look to be doing so soon, doesn’t mean you are unable to make use of any schemes. Currently, three location-based scrappage schemes are in place, with their own specific criteria, which you may be able to make use of.
- 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 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.
