The Motability Advanced Payment prices for quarter 4 2022 were released on Saturday 1 October, bringing a choice of around 600 different cars, SUV’s and MPV’s to qualifying disabled people and carers who wanted to lease a brand new affordable vehicle through the Motability Scheme.
Cars that were back on or new to the Motability Scheme at the start of this quarter included the Audi A1 & A3, the Ford Fiesta & Focus, the Honda Jazz & HR-V, the Kia Sportage & new Niro, the Lexus UX 300e (later removed), the Mazda CX-5, the Suzuki S-Cross, the Volkswagen Golf hatchback and the Volkswagen Caddy.
Motability Scheme car list changed on an almost daily basis as models were added and removed from the scheme list.
October - The Lexus UX 300e was removed on 6 October, less than a week after it was first added. The smart forfour came off the Motability list on 8 October. On 11 October Renault added their new all-electric Megane E-Tech.
November - The new MG4 EV was added to the Motability Scheme list on 2 November, priced from £799 Advance Payment. On 19 November the Alfa Romeo Tonale was added, with just one model priced at £3999 Advance Payment. Renault also added E-Tech hybrid versions of the Clio, Captur and Arkana.
December - In December the Nissan X-Trail (5 and 7 seat), Suzuki S-Cross and facelifted Kia Xceed were added to the scheme.
During this quarter Motability announced that the 'Good Condition Bonus' would be replaced by the 'Good Condition Payment'. This change applied to all new Motability vehicles ordered on or after 1 October 2022. The value of the new Good Condition Payment is £250 for vehicles leased over 3 years, and £350 for vehicles leased over 5 years. Motability also announced that they would pay £350 of the Good Condition Bonus early to help customers with the cost-of-living crisis.
