Motability have updated their new car and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) Advance Payment prices for October, November and December 2023. Here we look at some of the highlights and the key changes for the final quarter of the year and pick out all the best new Motability car deals. The Motability Scheme helps people with a disability and carers in the UK to lease a brand new and affordable vehicle, with a great selection of around 1000 different cars, SUV's, MPV's and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) to choose from.
Supply chain shortages that have hampered the automotive industry since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic have started to ease, with many cars now arriving with customers far faster than they were just a few months ago. In fact, some dealerships are now advertising cars that can be handed over to Motability customers in a matter of weeks.
As the supply of new vehicles continues to improve, we've seen the number of different models available to order through the Scheme grow and the Advance Payment price of many popular models fall, especially EVs.
Vehicles that are back on or new to the Motability Scheme at the start of this quarter include the following models:
Vehicles that are no longer available include the Kia Sportage, Kia Rio, the Kia Stonic, the Scoda Scala, the Skoda Octavia, and the Volkswagen Up.
We put this guide together at the start of October 2023. Remember vehicles can be added and removed by car manufacturers at any point during the quarter.
