Toyota Ireland has launched a new website to help Irish customers see how much they could save by scrapping their diesel vehicle and making the move to a Toyota hybrid or petrol car.
The launch of the website coincides with Toyota’s upgrade and trade-in promotions which make it even easier for customers to switch to hybrid or petrol.
Toyota is the only brand launching a diesel scrappage scheme exclusive to hybrid where the diesel vehicle will have to be scrapped, delivering real societal and environmental benefits as hybrids emit up to 90 per cent less NOx than diesel.
On the website, www.dieselscrappage.ie, users can see how much their current car is costing them each year by simply entering the registration of a vehicle on the website. In an instant, they can see how much could be saved by driving a Toyota.
The website, powered by Cartell, uses a range of factors such as depreciation, road tax, NCT costs, fuel economy and servicing costs when calculating the savings. Thousands of Irish drivers have already made the switch to hybrid.
Michael Gaynor, marketing director at Toyota, commented: “We see the market at a tipping point where a move out of diesel accelerates as people want to protect the future resale value of their vehicle though buying a hybrid or petrol. It’s why Toyota Financial Services, our new financial services partner, has revised downwards its Guaranteed Future Value (GFV ) on diesel vehicles and increased the GFV on hybrids so the gap is now six per cent in favour of hybrids.”
