Peugeot 208 and E-208 added 10th December

Peugeot 208

The New 208 comes as a petrol, a diesel and a full electric, E-208. Sharing many of the components of the Vauxhall Corsa (chassis, engines, gearbox, electrical architecture, dimensions) the 208 has the edge on design, inside and out the little Peugeot is incredibly pleasing on the eye. The engine choices are 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol with either 75bhp, 99bhp and 128bhp, a 1.5-litre diesel with 99bhp or a 134bhp (100kW motor and a 50kWh battery 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds) BEV version offering a WLTP range of 211 miles with no loss of space as the electric motor sits under the bonnet and the batteries under the rear seats.

The larger engine delivering improved fuel economy, 47.7 combined mpg compared to 45.6 for the lower powered car and an improved 0-62 time of 9.0 seconds compared to 10.2 seconds, The CX30 also incorporates a mild hybrid system but it is so mild Mazda do not make reference to it in their literature.

Toyota Rav 4 removed from Scheme

Toyota Rav 4

December 5th 2019

T-Cross added 5th December 2019

Volkswagen T-Cross

Finally the VW Polo based T-Cross is added to the Scheme, bumper retail sales and the resultant build delays have kept it off until now. Sadly as demand is high, the Advance Payment prices (starting at £1149) do not make it anything like a bargain – but if you want what is generally perceived as the best small crossover then the price is worth paying. Trim Lines are S, SE, SEL and R-Line, to have parking sensors (front and rear) you have to choose the SEL trim, equipment is excellent aside from this; 8 inch touchscreen with CarPlay / android auto alongside automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane keeping assist. Two engines, a 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol, with 95 or 115 bhp (go for the 115 if you want six manual gears or a 7 speed dual clutch Automatic) or a 1.6 diesel with 95bhp with 5 manual gears or a 7 speed Auto. Prices for the 115 manual T-Cross are £1299 SE, £1699 SEL £2199 R-Line or as an Auto: £1599 SE, £1999 SEL and £2499 R-Line. Told you it was expensive!

DS3 Crossback Electric added 20th November

DS3 Crossback E-Tense (Electric)

The only engine option presently is a 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol manual booted by a mild 48v hybrid system to offer either 123bhp or 153bhp, both offer a sub 10 second 0-62 mph time, 9.8 and 8.9 seconds respectively. Economy is a claimed 67.3 mpg for the 123 car and 64.2 mpg for the larger output, realistically if you get 50 mpg you are doing well. The only trims are Titanium, ST- Line X and STLine X + with the first edition packs making them very well equipped indeed. Prices start at £545 Advance Payment for the Titanium first edition and rise to £1395 for the higher output ST Line X +.

September 20th 2019

The new BMW 1 Series is added to the Scheme in SE, Sport or M Sport trim, Manual or Dual Clutch Automatic. The only version presently is the 118i, a 1.5 litre three cylinder petrol which is shared with the Mini, X1 and 2 series BMW. It offers 138bhp and can return a claimed 46 ish MPG, the reality is mid to high 30’s from our experience. 0-62 is 8.5 seconds and the 3 cylinder makes a nice rasping noice when pushed hard.   The major change is the move from rear to front wheel drive which does away with the propshaft tunnel making more foot room for the rear passangers, other changes are a larger boot, up to 380 litres and a long options list. Upgrade from SE to Sport trim and you have 17 inch alloy wheels and one years Apple Pay free, year two and three are chargeable -Disgusting. Full brochure and specs here. Prices are excellent for a new car and despite the retail price increasing by over £1000 the Advance Payments are less than the outgoing car. Prices start at £499 for the SE, £749 for Sport and £999 for the M- Sport in Manual. Auto cars are £749, £999 and £1249 across the trims.

 

September 19th 2019

The Mazda 3 Joins the Scheme, powered by the Skyactiv G engine a 2.0 litre non turbocharged petrol engine with 120 brake horse power.  This car is suitable for under 25’s as it is insurance group 16 up to Sport Lux trim. Sadly GT Sport and GT Sport Tech jump to group 17 so these are out of bounds. The more powerful and economic Skyactiv X engine is not represented, which is a shame. The trim lines are SE-L, SE-L Lux, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech. Prices start at £199 and rise to £899 for the manual car, add £200 for an Automatic gearbox.

Three engines, a 1.5 litre petrol with 136bhp badged 18i, a 2.0 litre petrol with 189bhp badged 20i, both claiming over 50mpg but the 18d 2.0 litre diesel is the pick, 148 bhp and enough grunt to move the x1 seamlessly, claimed economy is 61mpg. The new trim lines to the Scheme are SE, Sport and xLine. All cars have a 6.5 inch infotainment screen with DAB and sat nav built in and the xLine has leather seats. Full brochure here.

December 7th 2018: 

The boss of Motability Operations is stepping down after it emerged he is set to receive a £2.2m bonus on top of his seven-figure salary.

Mike Betts, the chief executive of Motability Operations, came under fire earlier this year after MPs called his annual £1.7m pay package “totally unacceptable”.

A report by the government spending office, the National Audit Office, published today says as well as his “generous” remuneration, Betts is also in line for a previously undisclosed performance bonus worth about £2.2m.

Following the report, Mobility Operations announced Betts would stand down from his position by May 2020, while the group’s chairman, Neil Johnson will retire in April 2019.

 

December 4th 2018: Friday 7th December sees the National Audit Office (NAO) publish its report into Motability Operations. There are also reports in the print press relating to bonuses paid. Expect TV News and Print to take up the story on Friday. Heavy sigh.

July 28th 2018: The Fiat 124 has now been removed from the Scheme. We have it on good authority that Skoda are not taking orders for petrol Karoq / Kodiaq cars.

 

July 23rd 2018: The Forum is littered with tales of woe relating to extended waits and sudden cancellations. Alfa have cancelled all orders of new cars, hence the Giulia being removed from the Scheme, the Mazda CX-3 is being updated and temporally unavailable, The Ford Kuga AWD Petrol have issues with completing the ordering process, (now resolved)  same for the Mercedes CLA diesel – we could go on and on. WLTP continues to cause havoc, thankfully step 2 has to be complete by 1st September 2018 so every car listed for Quarter 3 will have to be avaialble to order.

 

July 23rd 2018: Motability inform dealerships to contact all customers who have a vehicle affected by WLTP to either be offered a new order or to inform customers that  all cars will need to be registered on 18 plates even if the collection date is when 68 plates are avaialble (after 1st September)

June 6th 2018  Apple have announced a new Software update (ios12) for all phones as far back as the iphone 5S and ipads from air/mini 2. This new software will allow the use of the two most popular sat nav systems to be linked to Carplay, namely Google maps and Waze, meaning you will no longer be shacked to apple maps alone.

The new software is available in beta form (may not be compatible with existing apps) to download now for paid up developers, later this month in beta form for all customers and will go on general release when the beta testing is complete around September 2018.

Wireless Carplay is the next obvious technological step to be rolled out in new cars. Wireless Carplay is not a software update as it has been an option since ios9, it is a hardware issue down to the capabilities of the head unit fitted to your car, there are only a couple of cars that offer these units, BMW 5 series being one (not on Scheme) and the new 2018 Mercedes A Class will offer it on all models (Joining Scheme soon – hopefully)

The continued drop is for a few reasons and nothing terminal:

  1.  Mini and BWM are changing the automatic gearbox fitted to their cars from an eight speed torque convertor to a seven speed dual clutch. Number of MINI cars on scheme last quarter 78, this quarter 55. BMW 84 last quarter 70 this.
  2. Models are being updated and production of outgoing model stops prior to launch of new model: Honda CR-V last quarter 34, this quarter 19, new Mercedes A-Class pending, Mercedes cars dropped from 118 in Q1 to 106 now, Renault Megane last quarter 49 this quarter 6.
