Motability Operations EV customers

EVs are now more affordable than ever on the Motability Scheme

Motability Operations releases its latest price list with more choice of great value and high-tech EVs

London, UK, 2 April 2024 – Leasing an electric vehicle through the Motability Scheme has never been more affordable.

Motability Operations, the company that delivers the life-changing Scheme, has released its spring price list which illustrates how quickly the automotive industry is moving towards the greener future set out by the government’s Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Mandate.

For over 45 years, Motability Operations has helped disabled people in the UK access independent mobility through the Scheme. Every quarter, it releases a new list of available vehicles including powered wheelchairs and scooters to suit the needs of its 750,000 customers.

A decrease in petrol and diesel cars is becoming apparent, as the auto industry shifts its production lines into electric vehicles. The new price list reflects this, as advance payments* for many ICE vehicles went up. However, the upfront cost of many Scheme EVs has declined, making electric vehicles on the Motability Scheme more affordable and accessible than ever for our customers.

The new list showcases an impressive expansion of low emission options, including 130 vehicles with a 250 mile+ driving range and 40 battery electric vehicles with £0 upfront cost.

Even so, Motability Operations data shows that relying on public charging creates a significant barrier for customers considering EVs.

The company recognises the complexities associated with the transition and uses data and insights to understand the specific challenges its disabled customers face. Because of this, Motability Operations is committed to overcoming these barriers through investment, innovative solutions and collaborative efforts for example, the organisation is working to launch an app that makes paying for EV charging easier for its customers. Just last month, Motability Operations, in partnership with CALLUM introduced eVITA, a cutting-edge electric wheelchair accessible vehicle (eWAV) concept. It's designed with inclusivity in mind, catering to passenger WAV users in the electric transition.

Andrew Miller, CEO of Motability Operations, said: “As the largest car fleet in the UK, we’re in a unique position to pave the way in the transition to EV. But we cannot do that without also addressing its challenges.

“We are working with some of the country's most innovative startups and businesses to create solutions for our customers including an app to check accessible charging points, smart charging systems that can help save costs and charging on the go. We have committed £300m to support the affordability of EVs and are also working with local authorities to support better public charging for all.

“The reality is we cannot do this alone. The industry needs to work closely with government to ensure inclusivity is at the heart of the EV shift. If the EV transition works for our customers, we know it works for the country.”

Boasting over 890 models on the new list, the Motability Scheme continues to deliver great value to customers. As well as cheaper leasing, the company offers a worry-free package which includes insurance for up to three drivers, RAC breakdown assistance, servicing and maintenance, window repair and much more.

The latest Motability Scheme price list features a wider range of EV options and over 200 per cent more EVs than it did this time last year, providing customers with greater choice and flexibility in selecting a vehicle that meets their specific needs and preferences.
