The Motability scheme was created to provide personal mobility solutions, in the form of new vehicles to those whose mobility is compromised.
Today if you receive War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS), the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP), the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), you are eligible to join the Motability scheme, leasing a new car in exchange for some or all of your weekly payment.
As part of the Motability scheme there are a wide variety of options available in the Toyota range - and in conjunction with Autoadapt they can be fitted with helpful options to help store wheelchairs and make the controls more accessible to the driver.
All of the Aygo range is available with no advanced payment, with weekly payments starting at around £51 on both DLA/PIP for the entry-level Aygo. Higher specification x-play, x-cite, x-pression, x-pure and x-wave models are also available, with both manual and semi-automatic gearboxes. All Aygos are zero rate VED, achieving a combined fuel economy of 67mpg or more.
The wide range of models available also includes hybrid cars – the Auris Hybrid and the Yaris Hybrid. The top of the range Yaris Hybrid Excel costs £595 in advanced payment (free for WPMS) and the full weekly DLA payment, or £61.57 per week for those receiving WPMS.
The Auris is available as hatchback or estate versions, with the full range of engine options including the 1.33 and 1.2 petrols and the 1.6 diesel. Active, Icon and Business Edition specifications are available, along with the Hybrid model, which costs from £495 advance fee plus the full DLA payment.
If you fancy something a little larger, the RAV4 crossover is also available. This too can be selected with diesel, petrol and new hybrid options, starting at a £1,495 advance payment and total weekly allowance for the Hybrid Business Edition model.
