New Motability Prices

New Quarter 4 (Autumn) Prices released 1st October 2021

The new Motability prices will be published on Friday October 1st 2021. Quarter 4 (Autumn) prices run from 1st October through to December 31st 2021. 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.

 

Production Delays

This is the gift that keeps on giving it seems, there are severe delays in the manufacture of all marques, the global semiconductor shortage is seeing delivery times measured in months rather than weeks. The option to choose a stock vehicle to bypass the delays is becoming more and more difficult as stocks deplete and are not able to be replenished. Insist the Dealership are being honest with expected delivery dates, ask on the forum for news from fellow customers too.

 

Continued Trend

In the last three months we have seen the number of vehicles avaialble on the Scheme reduce from 1558 to 1059, a loss of 499 or nearly a third. Mercedes and Smart have removed all their vehicles from the Scheme, this will continue for Q4. Skoda(8) and Seat(4) have all but removed there vehicles too. The tale of woe continues and there is little light at the end of this very long tunnel.

 

Options

With choice so diminished, may customers are taking the option to extend their lease, this can be for up to two extra years and you are able to order a new vehicle at any point during this period. New models are less likely to be affected by the chip shortage, but by higher demand. Korean manufacturers, Kia and Hyundai, are coping admirably, but there are still reports of delays.

 

Fuel Shortages

Dominating the news presently, the fuel shortage, is expected to only be short lived but it has been wake up call for us all, prices are also rising at the pumps which bought the option of PHEV and Electric cars into  customers eyeline.  We presently have 95 full electric vehicles and 37 Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles on the Scheme, typically a PHEV will be able to run for around 25 miles on electric power only. The fact that 9% of vehicles listed are full electric is a sign of the direction of travel for the Scheme.
