In the UK, we scrap nearly two million cars and vans every year but the current popularity of car scrappage schemes from manufacturers will probably see numbers increase.
One news agency asked the 26 manufacturers running schemes how many cars they had scrapped in the last 12 months.
The answer from 12 of them is 14,240 with the other 14 manufacturers refusing to say how many they had accepted from customers wanting a new vehicle when scrapping their car.
Though most say their scrappage scheme has been a huge success, Ford’s scrappage scheme has scrapped more than 8,000 vehicle so far and these have accounted for nearly 60% of all the trade-ins since the firm’s scrappage scheme was brought in.
Another reason why Ford’s scheme is proving popular is that it is offering up to £2,000 off a new car which can be used in conjunction with any other of the Blue Oval’s current offers.
