The new Volkswagen e-Golf Executive Edition
The new Volkswagen e-Golf Executive Edition, one of the new cars where savings can be made with the new EcoGrant incentive

Volkswagen Ireland is relaunching the EcoGrant offer to encourage buyers to consider changing to a lower-emission new car, while also removing older, Euro 1-4 emissions standard vehicles from Irish roads.

Owners of any petrol or diesel vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions legislation qualify for the EcoGrant offer and can 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 – where you can find out if your current vehicle qualifies.

The EcoGrant offer is available across the Volkswagen range from entry-level cars such as the up! or Polo, to the Golf, Touran, T-Roc, Tiguan, Arteon, Sharan and new Touareg.

To find out more, log on to or contact your local Volkswagen retailer.
