Audi is dangling EUR10,000 trade-in incentives for Euro 1 to 4 diesel vehicles in Germany

Article by Christian A., on August 12, 2017

Incentives of up to EUR10,000 can be had by Audi customers who are willing to trade-in their older diesel vehicles to new Audi units that are compliant with the Euro 6 standard. This comes as Audi offers enticing trade-in incentives to clients owning diesel cars compliant only with emission standards Euro 1 through Euro 4.

Audi’s delicious trade-in bonuses come as the premium carmaker, along with other German carmakers, agreed to a series of environmental measures with the government of Germany, which are all aimed at reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from diesel vehicles by the end of 2018.These German carmakers were also urged to employ self-financed competitive measures to provide incentives for the shift from pre-Euro-5 diesel vehicles. As for Audi, its program was created to help accelerate the replacement of older diesel vehicles with modern and more eco-friendly cars.

In compliance with recent National Diesel Forum, Audi is offering incentives to all drivers of diesel cars with the emission standards Euro 1 through Euro 4, regardless of the model or brand, as long as the customer trades in for an Audi vehicle. Attractive conditions are also being offered for customers who are changing over to a late-model used Audi. Financed by Audi AG, these incentives are granted directly through the Audi dealerships, with customers not needing to make separate applications. The incentive offer is only available through December 31, 2017.

The amount of the incentive ranges from EUR3,000 to EUR10,000, depending on the category of the new vehicle traded for. When a customer avails of the incentive offer, his or her pre-Euro-5 diesel vehicle will be taken off the road and scrapped.

Interestingly, customers who decide to trade-in for an Audi vehicle with technology facilitating low emissions -- like an e-tron model with plug-in hybrid drive or a g-tron model that runs on CNG (compressed natural gas) – will get an additional environmental bonus provided by the German government. The premium carmaker has also doubled its share of the government’s environmental bonus from the current EUR1,500.

For instance, the trade-in bonus for the Audi g-tron has increased by EUR1,000, while the trade-in incentives for the upcoming A4 Avant g-tron or A5 Sportback g-tron have surged to EUR9,500. When using CNG, the Audi A4 Avant g‑tron only emits between 102 grams and 117 g of carbon dioxide per kilometer on the combined cycle. On the other hand, the Audi A5 Sportback g-tron only emits between 102 g and 115 g of carbon dioxide per kilometer, on the combined cycle.

Audi’s trade-in bonus campaign is only applicable in Germany.
