SEAT Launches Eco-nomics Scheme in the UK

Once the Government’s scrappage scheme was over, many carmakers rushed to build on its success and launched their own retail offers to continue to attract British buyers. Seat is one of those manufacturers to do so, and recently launched the Eco-nomics initiative, which provides savings of up to £2,000 off the RRP of selected SEAT Ecomotive models.

For example, buyers who opt for a new generation Leon Ecomotive SE (1.6-litreTDI powerplant with common rail fueling, Start-Stop technology and Energy Recovery system) can save a total of more than £4,300 over a three-year/45,000 mile ownership period.

Therefore, pricing for the Leon Ecomotive SE will be reduced from £18,045 RRP to just £16,045 RRP.  Meanwhile, Ibiza Ecomotive SC or 5dr buyers could qualify for a customer saving of £1,250 off the cars’ RRP, which currently starts at £12,790. The Eco-nomics discount therefore makes the revised RRP for the Ibiza SC Ecomotive just £11,540.

The scheme applies to retail customers only and relates to orders made by June 30, with cars registered and handed over by August 31, 2010.

"With the ending of the government’s scrappage scheme the industry has seen numerous ‘swappage’-style deals pop up,” SEAT UK Head of Operations, Richard Harrison, said in a release.

“However, we wanted to take the original ethos of the scrappage scheme and add a SEAT twist by making our latest, class-leading, green technology models even more accessible for everyone, not just owners of ten-year-old cars,” he added.

“Already great value, with the added Eco-nomics discounts, our Ecomotive models now appeal even more to the head as well as the young at heart,”
concluded Harrison.
