Are there electric or 'green' cars on the Scheme?

We have a range of electric and ‘green’ cars on the Motability Scheme, and we’re always looking to make the Scheme more eco-friendly. So you know, Tesla are not on the Motability Scheme.

You can filter by 'eco-friendly cars' when you search for a car. We also highlight these with a green 'leaf' icon to help you spot them.

If you’re looking to lease an electric car, here are a couple of things to consider:


’Range’ indicates how far you can drive the vehicle before you’ll need to charge it again.

This can be affected by several things, like the size of the battery, your driving style and even whether you are using the air-conditioning.

Make sure you check that the vehicle you choose is suitable for your typical journeys.

Charging your car

You’ll need to have access to a chargepoint to recharge the battery and you’ll need to pay for the electricity you use.

If you have off-street parking and this is your first chargepoint, we’ll arrange and cover the cost of a home chargepoint and a standard installation.

If you do not have off-street parking or it’s not possible to fit a home chargepoint, we’ll give you access to the bp pulse network of over 9,000 public chargepoints.
