Motability announces changes to pricing policy

Motability Operations has announced sweeping changes to its pricing policy. Its new price list contains 250 models at no advance payment, a 16% increase; more tan 600 models available with advance payment under £500, an 8% increase; and a record number of automatics (35 models) available at nil advance payment.

Under the new stabilised pricing policy, these features are valid until April 1 2005.

Mike Betts, Motability Operations’ chief executive comments: “This is our best price list to date, with an exceptional range of affordable makes and models on offer for the benefit of our customers. We know what an important factor price is, and have set out, working closely in partnership with the manufacturers, to offer a wide range of cars to suit every requirement and pocket.

“Independent analysis consistently shows that there is no more cost effective way to get motoring than with Motability. With these offers available from January to the end of March, there has never been a better time to join us.”

Key changes brought about by the new pricing policy mean that one of the most popular models on the Motability Scheme, a 7-seater Renault Grand Scenic, is now available with nil advance payment (was previously £395).

A comprehensive range of wheelchair accessible vehicles continues to be available, starting from nil advance payment for a five-year contract hire vehicle. For more information on the Motability Scheme please call 0800 093 1000 or visit
