BERLIN (Reuters) – The government welcomes German automakers' moves towards making concrete offers of discount trade-ins to owners of older, dirtier diesel vehicles, adding that these latest moves had been precisely what Chancellor Angela Merkel had been expecting.
"Volkswagen (DE:) said for example that it will be offering trade-in discounts from Nov. 1," said government spokesman Steffen Seibert. "It's good that the manufacturers are now making more concrete offers. That's what the chancellor expected."
