Toyota Scrappage Scheme

Currently there is no official Toyota scrappage scheme active. The previous scrappage scheme ended on 30/09/20 and has not been restarted. Toyota drivers looking to scrap their cars are recommended to compare prices to maximise the payout from scrapping their vehicle.

What is the Toyota scrappage scheme?

The Toyota scrappage scheme was an incentive to get people to trade in their older vehicles in return for a discount on a new car. There were no rules or restrictions on the type of car when it comes to emissions, but it must have been first registered on or before the 30th September 2012 and been owned by the current owner for at least six months. Customers could save between £2,000 and £4,000 when put towards a brand new Toyota through the scheme.

Is the Toyota scrappage scheme coming back?

There has been no suggestion that Toyota’s scrappage scheme will be returning in the near future, and we shall update this page accordingly should further news be released.

How did the scrappage scheme work?

To make use of the Toyota scrappage scheme, you had to have owned a car that was registered on or before the 30th September 2012 for at least six months. If you qualified for this, then upon trading in the car you would be given a discount towards buying a brand-new Toyota. Most models offered a saving of £2,000, including popular cars such as the Aygo, Yaris or Corolla, while the Hilux or GR Supra offered savings of £4,000.

Petrol Cars:

There was no restriction on the fuel type that could be traded, as the scheme was solely based on the age of cars being scrapped.

Diesel Cars:

There was no restriction on the fuel type that could be traded, as the scheme was solely based on the age of cars being scrapped.

Electric Cars:

Toyota was one of the pioneers of hybrid technology, with the Prius first coming to Europe at the turn of the Millennium, while Toyota also began offering hybrid models in the mid-2000s. With the age restrictions on this scrappage scheme being mid-2012, this means that some hybrid cars could have been eligible for trade-in. With the brand being big supporters of hybrid technology, most models would have a hybrid option when purchasing a new model.
