The first scheme was held in Auckland in 2007. This proved successful, as the benefits exceeded the costs. As a result we held a second trial in Wellington and Christchurch in 2009. However, the Wellington and Christchurch trials received a low number of vehicles and had relatively low overall social and environmental benefits, relative to the costs. This showed that a nationwide scrappage scheme is unlikely to be cost effective.
