Nissan is supporting British jobs with its sales campaign.
NISSAN EXTENDS ITS `BUY BRITISH' SCRAPPAGE SCHEME
NISSAN is extending its `Buy British’ scrappage scheme which covers cars between eight and ten years old and gives the owner a £2,000 minimum trade-in value if put against one of its new cars built at Sunderland.
The scheme will now run for an extra three months until the end of September and runs parallel to the government-backed scheme which caters for cars of ten years or older. The offer means drivers can buy a Micra for less than £6,000.
The multi-award winning Qashqai and the longer-wheelbase Qashqai+ are also included in the programme.
So far more than 3,000 Micras have been bought and overall Nissan has sold an extra 5,000 cars.
Nissan’s UK MD, Paul Willcox, said: “We’re delighted to be able to extend our Trade-in deal for an additional three months and delighted the car buying public is taking advantage of the Nissan offer. Our £2,000 minimum Trade-in provides what the Government’s Scrappage scheme fell short of offering: a real incentive to buy a British built car and a guaranteed trade-in value for owners of eight, nine and ten year old cars.
