Those behind the Mini Cooper range have called on motorists to show their loyalty to Britain when they trade in their vehicles under the new scrappage scheme.
Mini UK will be taking part in the government’s scrappage scheme, meaning that motorists who scrap their vehicles that are over ten years old will be given a £2,000 discount off the cost of a participating vehicle.
And Mini has called on motorists to choose a car that is British built, such as the Mini Hatch, Mini Clubman or the all-new Mini Convertible.
Andy Hearn, Mini UK general manager, said: "With close to 150 UK dealers and manufacturing bases in Oxford, Swindon and Hams Hall, I am certain that British people will recognise the importance of Mini to the UK economy, particularly as this year we are celebrating half a century of Mini in Britain."
Buyers of the Mini Cooper Hatch will benefit from a vehicle that can accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour in 9.1 seconds and a fuel consumption of 52.3 miles to the gallon.
