Volkswagen Ireland are 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 from the Irish car parc, by relaunching their attractive EcoGrant offer.
Owners of any petrol or diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation 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 set up a special website – www.ecogrant.ie where you can find out if your current vehicle qualifies.
All new Volkswagen petrol and diesel vehicles meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, currently 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 www.volkswagen.ie or contact your local Volkswagen retailer.

* Euro emissions standard
The ‘Euro 1’ standard was introduced in 1992 to help reduce vehicle emissions. Progressively more stringent Euro standards have been implemented since then – helping to lower emissions still further – with Euro 5 being introduced in 2009/2010.
‘Euro 6’, the standard that all new petrol and diesel cars must meet, is currently the toughest yet.
