Toyota pits ‘pure sports car’ against Porsche 718 Cayman after 17-year absence
Toyota has extended its scrappage scheme – again – meaning you have until the end of June to save up to £2,500 off the price of a new car.
Scrappage is designed to encourage owners of older cars to trade them in for cleaner models by offering chunky discounts off the list price. In this case, Toyota is offered £2,000 off the cost of an Aygo and £2,500 off a Yaris.
Curiously, the offer isn’t available on the Yaris Hybrid, the cleanest model in the Yaris range…
The offer applies to owners of a car registered up to and including 30 June 2011, but they must have owned the car for at least six months.
Toyota, Panasonic to set up EV battery JV in 2020: source
Toyota Motor Corp and Panasonic Corp are set to launch a joint venture next year to produce batteries for electric vehicles (EV) in an effort to compete with Chinese rivals, a source familiar with the matter said. The joint venture, to be owned 51 percent by Toyota and the rest by Panasonic, could also provide batteries to Toyota's EV technology partners Mazda Corp and Subaru Corp, the source said on Sunday. The source declined to be identified because the talks on the joint venture are private.
As an example, the Aygo X-trend costs £10,965 after the scrappage discount and is available on 0 percent finance for £151.10 a month over 42 months after no deposit.
The X-trend features 15-inch alloy wheels, smartphone integration, a seven-inch touchscreen, DAB, reversing camera, automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights.
Meanwhile, the mid-range Yaris Icon Trend costs £14,120 after the discount, or £211.59 spread over 42 months after no deposit.
This model features 15-inch alloys, Toyota Safety Sense, a seven-inch infotainment system, reversing camera, 4.2-inch multi-information display and rear parking sensors.
You have until 30 June 2019 to take advantage of the Toyota scrappage scheme, by which time the firm may have decided to extend it… again.
