New Motability Prices

New Quarter 2 (Spring) Prices released 1st April 2022

The new Motability prices will be published on Friday 1st March from 9am. Quarter 2 (Spring) prices run from 1st April through to June 30th 2022. We will post all information as it comes to us on this page. We will update you on all the movements (up and down) on this page. Every movement on the previous price can be tracked with our little arrows.  means the price has increased (if you place your mouse on the arrow you can see by how much the price has increased) and if the price has decreased you will see a green arrow Price reduced from previous quarter price or if there is no change in price the arrows are side by side . We will continue to post the War Pension (WPMS) prices alongside the DLA/PIP/AFIP prices.  Advance Payments for WPMS are around presently £1085 less than those of DLA/PIP/AFIP.  Even with this extra award there are no additional vehicles available to War Pensioners.



The Motability Scheme and a shortage of cars.

As of today, 30th March, the number of vehicles available on the Scheme is 584, as at 4th February 2022 this figure was 790 and at the 31st December 2021 it was 965. There has been a glut of Manufacturers leaving the Scheme; BMW, Citroen Mini, Mazda, Mercedes, SsangYong and Volvo, there have been a number of notable vehicles removed from the Scheme: Audi have removed the A1, A3 and Q3, Ford the Focus, Galaxy, S-Max, Puma and all Tourneo vehicles, Honda the CRV and Civic, MG the HS and MG3, Peugeot the Rifter and Traveller, Renault the Clio and Kadjar, SEAT, the Taracco, Skoda the Fabia, Karoq and Kodiaq, Toyota the RAV4 and Proace Verso and Volkswagen, the Caddy, Polo, ID3, ID4, T-Roc and Tiguan.


Prices Increasing.

The supply and demand situation has had an impact on prices too, Advance Payments on the Scheme are at an all time high. For example if you need a 7 seat vehicle, that is not electric, you have the choice of VW Touran, VW Tiguan Allspace and Peugeot 5008, The smallest Advance Payment is £3249 for a manual car and £3799 for an Automatic. The Electric options start at £1099 Advance Payment on the 9 seat Van based  Vauxhall Vivaro, the driving electric range a claimed 142 miles, which will be closer to 110 miles in winter.


Going Electric.

We have 61 electric options on the Scheme, 15 do not require any Advance Payment including the excellent Vauxhall Mokka offering a claimed 208 mile range. The most popular Electric car and long been the the darling of the Electric car community is the 64kWh Hyundai Kona offering a 300 mile range from £599 Advance Payment.


What about PHEV’s.

A Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle, is (perhaps) the best of both worlds as you can run on electric power but have no range anxiety. The electric only range, due to the size of the batteries, is only 27 – 34 miles and once depleted the claimed 200 miles per gallon figure is closer to 30 mpg. The other downside to a PHEV is cost, as they have batteries, electric motor and a petrol engine, The prices of the 24 PHEV’s on the Scheme range from £1995 Advance Payment for the Renault Captur to £5895 Advance Payment for the Toyota Prius Excel.



If you see or hear the term ‘mild hybrid’ take it with a pinch of salt, the only hybrids that should carry the name are HEV’s, these are Hybrid Electric Vehicles and they work in a similar way to PHEV’s only the batteries are small and they do not have to be plugged in as the batteries are small enough to be charged by regeneration methods or a by product of the engine running. The new e:HEV’s, such as the Honda HRV,   are emerging unlike traditional hybrid where the electric motor assists the engine, in e:HEV the engine produces electricity which assists the motor, the result is the smooth ride and crisp acceleration of an electric vehicle.


Grants and extensions.

Motability will extend the lease on your existing vehicle from 3 years to up to 5 and if it still fits in with your life then this is probably the route to take. Should you have to change your vehicle and are not able to afford the Advance Payment you may qualify for assistance through the charitable arm of Motability’s Grants team. Our advice would be to not enter the second hand market as car prices are vastly inflated and you have the potential to lose a lot of money when these return to a normal level, which they will once the new car shortage is over.
