Mini absorbs VRT rise on two diesel models
Mini is offering Irish customers a unique opportunity to beat the VRT tax hike in 2013 by absorbing the tax increase on the One D and Cooper D Hatch models, which output a low 99g/km of CO2.
The One D and Cooper D Hatch models come with Mini’s three-year warranty, three years emergency service, and fixed pricing servicing.
Mini Financial Services Ireland is set to run two for the first quarter of 2013. The Mini First Hatch is available for €299 per month with a deposit of €299 over three years. The Mini One D is available for €273 per month for customers with a €2,999 deposit, again over three years.
Kevin Hennebry, Mini manager told the Advertiser: “Mini’s acclaimed ‘minimalism’ environmental systems lead to lower CO2 emissions, offering Irish customers a more affordable and economical product without compromising the car’s driving performance and fun element.
“But today’s Irish consumer is seeking more than this. We see more and more customers are coming into our showrooms looking for value, and Mini Ireland is working in tandem with dealerships to offer premium vehicles under new ownership concepts such as Mini Select which is a personal contract plan product.
“Additionally, showroom feedback on the proposed 131 plate has been positive with customers understanding the need for the change.”
“Mini is also expanding its range to meet the needs of the Irish motorist, which now includes the four door Mini Countryman. In March Mini will launch its eighth model called the Paceman, bringing more choice to the Irish motorist.”
