Russia starts car scrappage scheme

Text size Aa Aa

A scrappage scheme has started in Russia to try to boost new car sales.

The government is offering 200,000 vouchers – each worth 1,200 euros – to people who scrap their old car and buy a new one built in Russia.

Sales in Russia reportedly slumped by 56 percent last year to 1.4 million vehicles.

However there are concerns that corruption and red tape may undermine the scheme.
