BERLIN — The government has welcomed German automakers’ moves toward 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 said for example that it will be offering trade-in discounts starting 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.”
