As Extra the Blade past has told, it has for owners of older diesel cars in the two weeks from 24. February has been possible to get 5000 crowns in skrotpræmie to let dieselbilen retire at the normal 2200 dollars, as the premium is on.
But the pot at the total 26 million dollars was quickly spent, and now have the auto industry Denmark for the scheme to be made permanent in order to get more of the older diesel cars away from the Danish roads.
It enlightens the auto industry Denmark in a press release.
- A higher skrotpræmie should be made permanent, and should as soon as possible be opened for a new pool. A green transition of our car fleet is most effective if there are gains on both ends of the consumers. Both when buying cars, but also when consumers of the most environmentally damaging, says Gitte Seeberg, ceo in the auto industry Denmark.

The new skrotpulje of 26 million dollars was opened 24. February 2020 and was already exhausted 11. march. It means that 9000 old and polluting diesel cars, which are produced before year 2006 are removed from the Danish roads.
As mentioned, it was only owners of diesel cars older than from 2006, which could cause the elevated skrotpræmie.
Now, there are so 9000 fewer of them on the roads, but the figures from the bilstatistik.dk, which brings together all the figures of the Danish car fleet, shows that there still exist at least 140.000 diesel cars registered before 2006 in Denmark.
- There is a long way to go to remove the most noxious cars from the Danish roads, and that is why we need a permanent mechanism to remove old and obsolete diesel cars as effectively as possible, says Gitte Seeberg.
Diesel passenger cars from for 1. January 2011 is the subject of the so-called Euro 5-norm, and therefore from the factory equipped with a particulate filter (DPF).
A particulate filter reduces the number of soot particles from the engine. Regardless of the type of filter reduces the particulate filter the emission of soot particles by 95 percent.
Precisely why believe the auto industry Denmark is also that the diesel cars from before 2011 should be away from the roads.
- In the big perspective, we achieve the greatest environmental benefit by removing diesel cars from before 2011. Therefore, the pot should be extended, so the state also provides a financial gain to get the cars away from the roads, says Gitte Seeberg.
