New Motability Prices – Q1 (Winter) 1st January 2022


Update 4th February 2022:

The Motability Scheme is being hit hard by the shortages of new cars. This morning BMW and MINI joined Mercedes, Mazda and Volvo in removing all their cars from the Scheme, leaving only 790 vehicles to choose from, only last year this figure was 1656.  The choice is limited and prices are higher than we are all used to, the supply of new vehicles against the demand has led to price increases and any discounts being removed.

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 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.

Please do not panic and 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.

New Motability Prices

New Quarter 1 (Winter) Prices released 1st January 2022

The new Motability prices will be published on Saturday January 1st 2022. Quarter 1 (Winter) prices run from 1st January through to March 31st 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.


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 six months we have seen the number of vehicles avaialble on the Scheme reduce from 1558 to 1059 at the end of Q3 down to 965 at the end of Q4, a loss of 593 or over a third. We have been promised the return of Mercedes for Q1 along with the Nissan Qashqai and Juke, earlier in the year there was confirmation of Lexus adding a specially trimmed UX, but no news since. From early release information it seems that the prices are increasing for Q1 but not the range.



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.
