Perodua already introduced the car scrapping programme from March 27 2009, instead of April 1, as earlier scheduled. Perodua was able to do so as it had completed all its processes ahead of plan. Perodua’s outlets have received many enquiries about the RM5,000 car scrapping incentive announced under the mini-budget on March 10. This is really a good news for anyone who want to buy national car instead of Proton. Now they have an option to exchange their old cars with RM5000 voucher to buy new Perodua cars.
There are an estimated 4.8 million cars of 10 years and above on the road now. Of this number, about 300,000 are Perodua vehicles comprising the Kancil, Rusa and Kembara registered between 1994 to 1999.
Syed Abdull Hafiz also said Perodua wished to clear the misconception that it would be giving customers the RM5,000 voucher plus the market value of their old car.
Since this is a scrapping programme and not a trade-in exercise, Perodua would not be paying anything over and above the RM5,000 incentive. If your old car is worth more than RM5,000, customers have the option to transact a trade-in plan for a new vehicle rather than scrapping it.
