    Are we seeing the fewest number of cars on the scheme?

    It’s not a great surprise that the scheme is in a bit of a mess.  We have an almost perfect storm.

    Income from the charitable side is down due to the pandemic.  There is a worldwide chip shortage (allegedly).  Manufacturers can’t run at full capacity due to staff shortages caused by the pandemic – anyone seen the headline from Nissan in Sunderland?    Some manufacturers have put APs at ridiculously high levels in order to keep vehicles on the scheme but knowing that the majority of us don’t have £4k+ available, it suppresses sales and allows them to meet delivery targets.  We still need to sign post Brexit trade deals with several car producing countries; including China, Brazil, South Korea, and the United States.  This causes uncertainty on pricing.  Everything coming in to Great Britain from the EU needs extra paperwork and this is on a per vehicle basis for factory orders.  PIP assessments are ridiculously behind schedule due to the pandemic, so new claimants are waiting longer than ever.  Personally I have been waiting for more than 13 months!

    Hopefully things will get back to normal soon but we cannot use our own metrics on when that will be.  The pandemic will continue for at least the next two years in one form or another thanks to the incredibly slow roll-out of vaccines globally.  I’d like to think that Motability could do something about it but I think we all know that, in reality, that ain’t going to happen.

    I think that’s a very fair analysis Ray.  Like all sectors of society, we have to ride out the storm. There are others worse off..

    Only 17 days ago, Motability were proudly boasting the following in their ‘news’ section dated 1st July 2021:

    Latest prices for the Motability Scheme

    Who said a week is a long time in Politics? Well, two weeks and three days is an eternity on the Motability Scheme it seems.

    I wonder if the number of vehicles available can (will?) go even lower?

    Apparently it’s “commercially sensitive”.

    Whilst there are chip issues etc that doesn’t fully explain the full magnitude of the drop. It used to be over 4,000 cars! The way that the scheme is going I can see our new car being the last we get from Motability, which would be a shame. We really struggled this time and of the cars on our shortlist only one ticked almost every box. I can see that choice being even harder in 3 years time. £10k sacrificed benefits plus AP plus cost of options to get the spec you want is a big outlay for something that is a compromise.

    I’m seriously considering leaving the scheme and buying myself a used Lexus SUV.  With these APs and the lack of choice it’s not easy to stay.

    I have just spoken to my VW dealer as I was going to start the process of replacing my Tiguan for another one, and he said that VW informed dealers last night that all Golfs, T-Rocs and Tiguan will be pulled from Motability this quarter, because of chip shortages.

    I have no reason to doubt him, but if it’s not right then don’t shoot the messenger!!

    I’m beginning to get frustrated now with car shortages, micro chips, covid, Brexit etc… what an absolute shambles Great Britain has become.

    The cars available are outrageous, and AP’s are also, outrageous. I’m due to renew, this is my third extension, next May will be the 5th year and why, because sod all has become available that suits my needs.

    I think Mota need to have a sit down and think about how things are going to be managed moving forward. The relationships with dealers are so negative towards us also, it’s just got 💩 all of a sudden.
