Renault maintains scrappage drive
Renault was the brand that did the best out of the scrappage scheme that ended last Thursday.
However, to keep the impetus going, the French company will extend and double its own scheme for a limited period -- giving customers the chance to save up to €5,800 on every 2001-registered car.
The top selling Clio Royale is from €9,990; the Megane Royale Diesel from €15,300; and the Fluence Royale Diesel from €16,000, with car tax Band A and five years' unlimited mileage warranty
Customers don't have to wait until the 10th birthday of their 2001 registered vehicle -- they can get extended and double scrappage on any Renault car now.
Eric Basset, managing director of Renault Ireland, said: "Scrappage can't stop: it has worked, for the industry, for the customer and for the economy, so we will continue to offer customers value with double scrappage and extend it to all 2001 cars."
