The Motability Scheme
Established in 1978, the Motability scheme has helped over 600,000 people claim back their independence by making brand new cars more accessible for those with disabilities.
If either you or a family member are disabled and receive the allowances to qualify for the scheme, you could take advantage of accessing a brand-new car every 3 years, removing most of the stress that comes with owning and running a vehicle for a longer period.
Below we explain how Motability works, including a full price list for the MG line-up, so you can soon be on the road in your new MG vehicle.
What is the Motability Scheme?
The Motability Scheme provides an affordable, worry-free way for people with disabilities to lease a car, scooter or powered wheelchair in exchange for either all or part of their mobility allowance. The Scheme is operated by Motability Operations Ltd, under contract to Motability, a registered Charity.
Motability's worry-free car lease package includes:
Insurance – Don’t worry about car insurance costs because the Motability scheme has got you covered.
Servicing and maintenance – Motability provide regular servicing and maintenance to ensure your car stays in top condition.
Full RAC breakdown assistance – Drive stress free knowing you are fully covered with roadside assistance if anything goes wrong.
Annual road tax – Motability renew it for you, so you won’t have to.
FREE Tyre & Windscreen replacement – Wear and tear is only natural which is why tyre and windscreen replacements are included for free.
60,000 mileage allowance over 3-year lease – Love driving? With a 60,000 mileage allowance you will be free to do everything from driving to your local shops, to going on a road trip!
Support with your electric car – If you're leasing your first electric car on the Motability Scheme, Motability will arrange and cover the cost of a home chargepoint and a standard installation, or give you access to the BP Pulse network of public chargepoints.
As part of the mobility scheme, you can also enquire about any additional adaptations to the car that you need to make your driving experience as smooth and easy as possible. This can include modifications to make it easier to get in and out of the car, as well as greater storage space to securely store vital equipment. All you need to do is ask your dealer how your MG car can be tailored to your specific needs.
