Mazda Scrappage Press Release

  1. 1. Media Information For immediate release 18.05.2009 GATES MAZDA BOOSTS SCRAPPAGE SCHEME WITH LOW COST FINANCE OFFERS Gates Mazda is retaining its popular range of hugely competitive low finance deals for motorists looking to take advantage of the new scrappage scheme. While many manufacturers have withdrawn their most competitive rates, Gates Mazda is keeping its collection of 0 per cent* finance deals – meaning even more added value for Bishops Stortford motorists changing their ‘old’ model for a new Mazda. The scrappage scheme starts on 18 May and will run until 28 February 2010 or until the £300 million Government funding has been used. Under the terms of the programme, a £2,000 discount against the purchase price of a new Mazda can be obtained – £1,000 each from the Government and Mazda – when the owner scraps a vehicle over 10 years old. “Our collection of low finance deals brings a new Mazda within reach for an increasing number of motorists,” highlights Adrian Barnes, dealer principal at Gates Mazda. “It’s about the affordability of the monthly payments and our low finance rates make it possible for our customers to purchase a new Mazda.” “Our vehicles have an enviable reputation for reliability and low operating costs and with the assistance of the scrappage scheme and the availability of low cost finance, we are giving consumers even more reasons to buy a Mazda.” With a full suite of finance offers in place it means that 0 per cent funding options are available on a number of models including Mazda2 and the all-new Mazda3, which are expected to be the most popular for consumers taking advantage of the scrappage scheme. In addition, both ranges are also available with a 3.9 per cent rate for traditional conditional sale finance or a PCP, with the scrappage discount acting as a deposit. But, the entire Mazda model line-up at Gates Mazda’s Stansted Road showroom, which also includes Mazda5, Mazda6, MX-5, RX-8 and BT-50, is available through the scrappage scheme and with a number of different finance offers.
  2. 2. Mazda UK sales and marketing director Mark Cameron adds: “Unlike some of our competitors we have not reduced the strength of our current retail finance offers for non- scrappage scheme customers. So whether looking to buy a new Mazda inside or outside of the new scrappage programme, Mazda is making the opportunity to buy a new car as attractive as possible.” To find out more about how to take advantage of the scrappage scheme or to arrange a Mazda test-drive, please call Gates Mazda on 01279 715300 or visit the showroom at Stansted Road, Bishops Stortford. – Ends – Mazda press information: Gates Mazda information: Kaya Mallinder/Julia Nason Laura Nevin Mazda Dealer PR Marketing Co-Ordinator 01279 715300 01622 776 689 Ref: 0905G-PRO Notes to Editors: For all the latest news and images from Mazda please visit the Mazda press site at: *Retail sales only.
