Volkswagen brings back EcoGrant trade-in

The VW eGolf, which qualifies for an EcoGrant offer.

Volkswagen Ireland is encouraging the uptake of the latest-generation, lower-emission new cars, hand-in-hand with the removal of older Euro 1-4 emissions-standard vehicles, by re-launching their attractive EcoGrant offer.

Owners of any petrol or diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation can qualify for the EcoGrant offer. They are able to trade-in the vehicle to benefit from incentives — ranging from €1,000 to €5,000 — against a variety of Volkswagen models.

The trade-in vehicle needs to have been owned by the customer for at least six months. Volkswagen has established a dedicated website — where you can find out if your current vehicle qualifies.

All new Volkswagen petrol and diesel vehicles meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards — the most stringent yet. There is a huge choice of models to choose from under the EcoGrant offer, starting from entry-level cars such as the up! or Polo, to traditional favourites such as the Golf and Touran and the new T-Roc, right up to larger models such as the Tiguan, Arteon, Sharan and even the new Touareg.

The EcoGrant offer is also available on the e-Golf and e-Golf Executive Edition.

To find out more, log on to or contact your local Volkswagen retailer.
