The Volkswagen Group can give a positive interim report on its exchange incentives for diesel vehicles. Since August 2017, more than 300,000 old diesel vehicles to exhaust emissions standards Euro 1 to Euro 5 have been exchanged throughout the Group. They have been replaced by new or nearly new cars from the participating Group brands with efficient powertrains of the latest generation to exhaust emission standard Euro 6. Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Head of Group Sales: “The exchange incentives have significantly exceeded our expectations. We have kept our promises to politicians and made a key contribution to the renewal of the fleet and to a rapid improvement in air quality in German cities. Our customers have recently increasingly opted for used cars, which is why we are extending the relevant incentives until further notice for VW and Audi. The incentives for new cars will expire at the end of April, as already announced.”
