Are there any electric vehicles on the Scheme?
There are a limited number of electric vehicles available to lease through Motability and further details can be found by selecting ‘Fuel type’ on the Car Search tool. If you are looking to lease an electric vehicle, there are a couple of important things to consider:
Electric vehicles are only suitable for people who travel shorter distances. Electric cars can only travel a certain distance before needing to be recharged so you should have an alternative form of transport available to you for longer journeys
A charging point will need to be fitted outside your home by the car manufacturer’s chosen electric partner, for example British Gas. In order to have a home charging point fitted you will need to have access to off-road parking such as a private driveway or garage.
Before you place your application, your dealer will run through some important details to make sure the car is suitable for your needs.
