Mazda adds MX-30 to UK scrappage scheme

As Mazda launches the UK sales of the MX-30, they have added the fully-electric SUV, to their UK-wide scrappage scheme. Customers can save up to £1,000 off the new Mazda battery-electric vehicle and receive a charger when trading in their previous car.

With the company’s first fully electric car, the electric SUV MX-30, Mazda is entering a new business world. While it still has a
combustion counterpart, this marks a significant market initiative for the carmaker.

“The Mazda Scrappage Scheme has grown increasingly popular since its introduction in 2017,” said Peter Allibon, sales director at Mazda UK. “Not only can drivers save up to £4,000 off their new Mazda on the Incentive Scheme, but they will also be able to benefit from lower emissions and improved economy thanks to Mazda’s clean, efficient and award-winning Skyactiv Technology.”

The Mazda scrappage scheme covers the Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, Mazda CX-30, Mazda CX-5, Mazda MX-30, and the Mazda MX-5. Of these, the scrappage premiums range between £3,000 and £4,000 for the combustion models. In contrast, the only fully-electric model is limited to £1,000 but includes a NewMotion wall box charger and installation.

“With the First Edition order book now open, those drivers who are looking to swap into an electric vehicle can reserve a model for just £800. The additional £1,000 saving and free NewMotion home charging installation further adds to the excellent value of this limited edition,” Allibon explained.

Deliveries for the £27,495 electric SUV running on an AC synchronous electric motor and a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery are scheduled to begin in March. The electric car has a range of approximately 124 miles and can be charged with AC up to 6.6kW and DC rapid charging capabilities designed to meet CCS standards at 50kW.

Like all other new car sales, Mazda cars sold through the scrappage scheme are contactless with the customer’s old car collected from their home. This includes any vehicles registered on or before 31 December 2011, according to the company.
