Windsor, Ontario – Chrysler Canada has announced that it will add rebates of $500 to $1,500 over incentives offered by the federal government’s Retire Your Ride program when consumers trade in their older vehicles on new ones.

“This is the responsible thing to do,” said Reid Bigland, president and CEO of Chrysler Canada. “Facilitating the removal of these vehicles from the road is the right move for our country, our health, and our environment. In many isntances, the turned-in vehicles release 19 times more smog than a current model-year vehicle. As a result, Chrysler Canada is proud to offer the most aggressive scrappage incentive in the Canadian industry, and we are pleased to be the first official Retire Your Ride automotive partner.”

Consistent with the federal government’s program, qualifying customers must be owners of vehicles 1995 and older, in running condition, and registered and insured in Canada for the previous consecutive six or 12 months, depending on the province.
