The Motability Advance Payment prices for quarter 3 2023 were released on Saturday 1 July, bringing a choice of around 1000 different cars, SUV’s, MPV’s and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) to qualifying disabled people and carers who wanted to lease a brand new affordable vehicle through the Motability Scheme.
Supply chain shortages that had hampered the automotive industry since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic started to ease, with many brand new cars arriving with customers much faster than they had a year ago. In fact, during these months many dealerships were advertising cars that could be handed over to Motability customers in a matter of weeks.
Vehicles that were back on or new to the Motability Scheme at the start of quarter 3 included the following models:
Vehicles that could no longer be ordered included the BMW X2 and the Volkswagen Tiguan and Caddy.
The Motability Scheme car list changed on a fairly regular basis during the quarter as models and trims were added and removed by car manufacturers. Here's some key changes that happened during quarter 3:
July - On 5 July Vauxhall added the Mokka Electric 'Ultimate' trim (£499 Advance Payment). Dacia added Bi-Fuel (Petrol and LPG) versions of the Sandero Stepway and Duster.
