Latest prices for the Motability Scheme

Our range of around 1,200 vehicles available through the Motability Scheme has now been updated for July-September 2021. Every three months, we renegotiate our prices with manufacturers so that we can offer you a choice of vehicles that are both affordable and suitable for your needs. And with such a wide variety available, we’re sure you’ll be able to find one that’s right for you.

Events such as the COVID-19 pandemic, new emissions legislation and supply of component parts are all putting pressure on car manufacturers and, subsequently, the Scheme. During these ever-changing times we have worked hard to ensure that everyone can find a car suitable for them at an affordable price. Pressures in the market are leading to longer delivery times for some new cars so please check this with the dealer when making your choice. You may be able to reduce timescales by compromising on the colour, or there could be a comparable car from a different manufacturer which is available sooner.

Below you will find a snapshot of the latest prices available on the Scheme, but you can browse the full selection using our Car Search tool.

How much does leasing through the Scheme cost?

When you lease a car through the Scheme, there are three pricing options available. Take a look at a small selection of what’s available below:

1. Cars that cost less than your mobility allowance:

There around 45 cars that cost less than your mobility allowance, giving you money back to spend as you wish. The amount you pay is fixed during your lease and the remainder is paid directly to you by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or Veterans UK.

2. Cars that cost all of your mobility allowance with no Advance Payment:

There are around 135 cars that cost the same as your allowance, which means you swap the whole of your weekly mobility allowance for the car of your choice. There is no Advance Payment on these models. These cars will display the words ‘Total Mobility Allowance’ on the specifications page for weekly rental amount on the Car Search tool.

3. Cars that cost all of your mobility allowance and have an Advance Payment:

You can increase your choice further by paying a one-off, non-refundable upfront payment which we call an Advance Payment. The Advance Payment covers the cost between your qualifying mobility allowance and the total cost of your lease.
