A new scheme to encourage Maltese drivers to scrap their vehicles and buy cleaner replacements has been taken up completely in the first two months since its introduction.

A total of 506 vehicles have benefited from the €400 000 government grant, known as the New Grant Scheme on the Purchase of New Environment-Friendly Vehicles.

The scrappage scheme by Malta’s transport operator, Transport Malta, was first announced in the country’s 2015 budget in November 2014.
