Your lease package
You need to receive a qualifying mobility allowance to be eligible to lease an electric car through the Motability Scheme. We’ll give you a way to charge your car.
Replacement locks if keys are stolen
Excess payment before repairs begin
Using the car for business purposes
Regular servicing and maintenance is included as part of your worry-free package for your electric car. Any routine repairs are included in your agreement.
If you have adaptations fitted in your car, your installer will let you know if any regular maintenance is needed.
MOT tests check your car is safe to drive and meets environmental standards. It’s due every three years. If you have a three-year lease, your dealer will let you know when to arrange it. The cost of the MOT test is included in your lease.
Our customer service team
Breakdown cover for your electric car is included in your lease. If your car breaks down while you are out and about, or you have an accident, you can be confident that the RAC Motability Assist helpline and recovery staff are trained to handle your calls. They’re available all day, every day, all year round on 0800 731 1173.
Out of charge? Some RAC vans are fitted with an EV Boost, which can give you a 30-mile boost to get you home or to the nearest chargepoint.
One of the great things about leasing an electric car through the Motability Scheme is we’ll arrange and cover the standard cost of a home chargepoint and its installation, if you’re leasing your first electric car on the Scheme.
Having a chargepoint fitted at your home is the most convenient and cost-effective way of charging your electric car.
You can have a chargepoint installed at one of your approved drivers’ addresses, but you need to contact us to discuss this and get approval.
We’ll only pay for one chargepoint to be installed at the start of your first electric lease, so you need to be sure you will not change that driver during your lease.
If we’re not able to fit a home chargepoint at your home, you’ll be given access to the bp pulse network for easy public charging.
If you have any questions or issues with your home chargepoint, please speak to your chargepoint installer directly.
