  • Get £5k off a new Ford Focus when you trade in your old polluter: Ford is latest car maker to launch a scrappage scheme amid government inertia

At the lower end, drivers will receive £2,000 off a Ford Fiesta while at the top end those who trade in their vehicle and purchase a Transit van, will get a £7,000 discount.

The scheme applies to any pre-Euro 5 vehicle registered before December 2009.

Car-giant Ford has announced a auto and van scrappage scheme for pre-Euro 5 vehicles, which will offer customers incentives to switch to lower emission Euro 6 models.

It is expected that the scheme would help boost the vehicle sales as demand for new cars is beginning to show signs of weakness, according to BBC.

Brit motorists can cash in on the deal if they trade in their old cars and vans.

Only the Quran is the first source of law, therefore sources other than the Quran are a supplement to what is in it. He hailed the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for stand on triple talaq issue before the Supreme Court.

Ford reportedly said that all of the part-exchanged vehicles will be scrapped that would have an immediate positive effect on air quality.

Ford's chairman Andy Barratt said: "Ford shares society's concerns over air quality".

More unusually, Ford's plans allow customers to trade in an old vehicle from any manufacturer until December.

The auto giant will allow any auto or van owner to trade in vehicles registered before December 2009, when new Europe-wide emissions standards were introduced.

The scrappage scheme begins on September 1 and will last only four months.

Do other manufacturers have similar schemes?

BMW announced earlier this month that drivers trading in older BMWs and Minis would be offered a £1,800 discount on a BMW i3 or a Euro 6 vehicle with Carbon dioxide emissions up to 130g/km. New analysis released last week found that electric cars are now greener than even the most efficient petrol and diesel cars thanks to the deployment of renewables cutting the carbon intensity of the United Kingdom grid.

Vauxhall now offers a similar £2,000 scrappage scheme - extending it beyond its original June cut-off date - with cash off most of its range in return for ditching your old motor. Ministers have set a target for all petrol and diesel cars to be banned by 2040.
