Volkswagen extends successful environmental and future incentives in Germany

Volkswagen extends successful environmental and future incentives in Germany
  • Scrappage program for old diesels extended until March 31, 2018
  • Incentives granted for about 70,000 new cars and employees' cars up to 1 year old since mid-August
  • Second shift introduced in Dresden to meet high e-Golf demand

Volkswagen has today extended its successful environmental and future incentive program in Germany up to the end of March 2018. Since the program was introduced in mid-August, incentives have already been granted for about 70,000 new cars and employees' cars up to 1 year old with a clean, efficient Euro 6 engine. The purchasers each scrapped an old diesel meeting exhaust emission standards Euro 1 to Euro 4. Furthermore, the Volkswagen brand has taken a key step forward in the transition to e-mobility. In connection with the environmental incentive, about eight percent of new car buyers opted for an electric vehicle, about four times more than was previously the case. High demand for the e-Golf has led to the introduction of a second daily shift at the Transparent Factory in Dresden.
