Fledgling Spanish brand CUPRA offers a surprisingly appealing compact family EV with sporting genes, this car, the Born. It takes all the clever ingredients of other VW Group EVs, but blends them into a more engaging and characterful confection.
The Motability Scheme helps people with a disability stay mobile and retain their independence through the lease of a brand new car. By choosing Motability, you could be driving a new CUPRA within weeks, complete with the Motability ‘worry free’ 3 year maintenance and insurance package.
This won't take a moment...
To order a CUPRA through Motability, you (or someone you care for) need to be in receipt of 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 and 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.
Because of the ‘worry-free’ Motability package, the vast majority of the costs normally associated with running a car are covered as a part of the deal.
So, in addition to a brand new CUPRA every 3 years (with a mileage allowance of up to 60,000 miles), you'll also benefit from car insurance, regular servicing, maintenance, roadside assistance and VED for the duration of the lease.
Any questions? You’ll find at least one CUPRA Motability specialist at every single CUPRA dealership who is fully trained to provide help and advice to customers with a wide range of disabilities.

Spanish brand CUPRA has joined the Motability Scheme with this car, the Born. It's based on the same running gear as Volkswagen’s electric ID.3, but CUPRA promises improved driver engagement and a more premium feel. So, is it any good, or is it just an ID.3 that's been fitted with a sporty body...
The CUPRA Leon might not be the stand alone CUPRA hot hatch model we'd hoped for but it does offer a very appealing and satisfyingly sophisticated lower priced alternative to a fast Volkswagen Golf or Audi A3. This Spanish shopping rocket comes with a choice of conventional petrol turbo or PHEV powertrains.
The Motability Scheme helps people with a disability stay mobile by exchanging their Mobility Allowance for a brand new car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV). To qualify for a new Cupra through the Motability Scheme, you need to currently benefit from one of the following government funded Mobility Allowances:
The Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance - £71.00 a week
The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment - £71.00 a week
Higher Rate Mobility Component of Child Disability Payment (Scotland Only) - £71.00 a week
Enhanced Rate Mobility Part of Adult Disability Payment (Scotland Only) - £71.00 a week
The Armed Forces Independence Payment - £71.00 a week
The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement - £79.25 a week
It's only the Mobility element of the allowance that is exchanged for a Motability vehicle, not the whole allowance. Joining the scheme is easy, with no forms or paperwork to fill in, no medical questions, no waiting lists and no credit checks more
