To order a BYD Atto 3 through Motability, you or someone you care for needs to currently be claiming the higher Mobility element of one of a number of Government benefits, including either the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the War Pensioners’ Motability Supplement or the Armed Forces Independence Payment. In Scotland, the benefits are either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Child Disability Payment (CDP) or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Part of Adult Disability Payment (ADP).
Even if you don’t drive, you can still register for the scheme as a passenger and nominate up to three people who will be insured to drive the vehicle on your behalf.
Thanks to the ‘worry-free’ Motability package, the vast majority of the costs normally associated with running an EV are covered, meaning you only pay to charge up the battery.
In addition to a brand new car every 3 years (with a mileage allowance of 60,000 miles), you also benefit from comprehensive car insurance, regular servicing, maintenance, tyre and windscreen cover, RAC roadside assistance and road tax for the duration of the lease.
