Volkswagen Canada has announced aggressive finance, lease, and cash incentives to keep its cars rolling out of showrooms in the wake of the company’s diesel emissions scandal.
Until November 2, VW is offering zero-percent financing for 84 months (seven years), or big discounts for cash buyers. Of course, with the diesel engine stop-sale order still in place, these deals apply only to the brand’s gasoline-powered models.
A Volkswagen Canada spokesperson said the latest round of offers is meant to “support our dealers and customers during the present time, especially considering we cannot sell any vehicles with the 2.0L TDI engine.”
He added, more plainly, that Volkswagen Canada understands car shoppers might need a little push in the direction of a VW showroom while the company figures out what it will do to address the dirty diesel scandal, and that these deals were designed to do that, too.
Offers vary model to model, and not all are eligible for the zero percent deal; the biggest discounts to be had are $4,250 on the wimpy Jetta 2.0L (which VW wants to clear out to make room for its new 1.4T engine) and Tiguan, and a whopping $7,000 for certain trims of the CC coupey-sedan.
