Are you considering an electric vehicle? Did you know that if you’re a Motability Scheme customer then you can have a charge point installed at your home, or gain access to a network of charge points for easy on-street charging? Read more about this new initiative below.
A charging solution for electric vehicle customers
We know that many of our customers are interested in electric vehicles but are concerned with charging them. So, as part of our worry-free motoring package, we’re offering customers who place an application for full battery electric vehicles an at home charge point at no additional cost.
If you are unable to fit a home charging point at your property, for example if you don’t have access to off-street parking, then instead you’ll be able to access a network of charging points for easy on-street charging.
The Motability Scheme offers a selection of fully electric vehicles, including the Smart forfour, Vauxhall Corsa-E and Renault Zoe. Use our Car Search tool to view the full list.
There are no costs to supply and install a home charge point, but if there is work required to gain access to your electricity supply then you’ll have to cover these costs. Also, customers are responsible for paying for the electricity used to charge their car.
If you would prefer to use an alternative supplier to the one recommended by the Scheme, you can do so, but this will be at your own cost.
What will I need to do?
During your application for a full battery electric vehicle your dealer will ask if you would like to take advantage of our charging solution. All you need to do is say yes, your dealer will then pass your contact details onto one of our approved installers.
You’ll then be contacted directly by an installer who will arrange the provision of a charging solution.
How can I find an electric car on the Motability Scheme?
Motability Scheme customers can now choose to pick from pure electric cars, by ticking the ‘Electric’ box under ‘Fuel Type’ in the Car Search tool.
Search our full range of vehicles
You can search the full range of cars on the Scheme using our Car Search Tool. If you are already a customer, you can find out more about the process of getting your next car and see a month-by-month breakdown of the process leading up to the day of collection.
The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange all or part of your mobility allowance for leasing a car, scooter or powered wheelchair.
