Auto Trader responds to extension of ULEZ scrappage scheme
This is great news for Londoners who have found it difficult to transition to less polluting vehicles — says Auto Trader CEO Nathan Coe.
We previously called for an extension of the scrappage scheme’s terms and this announcement from Transport for London is a really encouraging move to show the positive impact that incentives and support can have on people who are keen to make sustainable decisions but who just can’t afford to.
Further support, in the shape of a scrappage scheme for all Londoners, shows that prioritising clean air doesn’t have to be a decision of pocket over planet.
Some drivers may find that selling is still a better option rather than scrapping if their car is desirable in the broader national market – it’s important drivers do their research before deciding what’s best for them.
We also welcome the scheme’s extension designed to support small businesses to drive more sustainable vehicles. Vans commonly make more frequent and longer journeys and so trying to incentivise businesses to make the switch to electric will no doubt be a great step in the right direction to improve Greater London’s air quality.
