2018 Mercedes diesel scrappage scheme – how does it work and do you qualify?

Mercedes has launched a diesel scrappage scheme offering buyers up to £1,750 in exchange for your old trade-in car. It’s available to drivers who are trading in diesels that meet Euro-4 standards or earlier – that means if your car was built before January 2011 it could qualify for the trade-in deal.

What is Euro 4?

Car emissions are classified against a scale set by the European Commission. Essentially, every couple of years the emissions regulations are tightened to help improve air quality in Europe. The 2017 scrappage schemes generally require your old car to have a Euro 4 or earlier rating – so produced before 31 December 2010.

  • Euro 1 – 31 December 1992 to 31 December 1996
  • Euro 2 – 1 January 1997 to 31 December 2000
  • Euro 3 – 1 January 2001 to 31 December 2005
  • Euro 4 – 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2010
  • Euro 5 – 1 January 2011 to 31 August 2015
  • Euro 6 – introduced 1 September 2015
