    Anyone taking bets on it reaching 1.000 cars on the scheme. It appears to be a downward spiral that has yet to stop.  The question one has to ask is will the numbers come back. And when.

    You obviously haven’t read the new August issue of Lifestyle magazine – “There are so many cars being added to the Scheme….”

    Interestingly, there are no readers letters this issue – wonder why? Maybe too many negative comments and not enough positive, perhaps?

    We really should be getting an email from motability explaining what’s going on and how long it is likely to last.

    Still 89 vehicles on the scheme that don’t trash the planet.

    If the electrics go then the scheme is over.

    They’re unlikely to go. Manufacturers need every EV sale to help them meet politically imposed quotas and avoid massive penalties.

    Looks like the price we are going to have to pay for the change from Ice to EVs on the scheme will be high APs. Take a look at VW ID3. If you require a large boot or SUV type vehicle that might appear on the scheme then expect to pay 4k+ upfront.

    Ian your right but we are in an absolutely unique position that is likely to last for three to five years where you will save a lot of money on fuel going ev. 8,000 miles per year is average at present and you could save well over £600 a year by going BEV.

    Because the scheme is a lease scheme, the APs depend upon the predicted value of the cars in 3 and 5 years time. Demand for EVs is high at the moment which keeps prices high & discounts low, but the predicted values into the future has changed in the EVs favour for now at least.

    EVs with a large enough boot on the scheme are currently severely lacking but hopefully that will change by year end, just like it changed with the smaller EVs over the last 18 months. Look back to January 2020, the available EVs of note were BMWs i3 with an AP of around £3000, but that changed by February 2020 with the Pug e208 & Pug e2008 arriving with lower APs unless you wanted the toys & then they still cost about £3000 (my Pug e2008 was £2850 AP). By summer you could get the Zoe with a decent battery size for a small AP & the Koreans were arriving at a little over £3ooo. By the end of 2020 we saw the AP on a 64kWh Kona EV fall rapidly. Currently a 64kWh Kona or Soul is £999 AP, the ID3 competes with an even longer range 77kWh offering at only a little more AP.

    Whether a large enough EV with enough range arrives on the scheme before you want to consider one is the current constraint. It’s a changing situation & will probably be different a couple of weeks from now, exciting times indeed.

    As for me, I’m enjoying my little Pug e2008, it could have better range, or more space, both highly desirable, but I’m managing. Current worries are indeed “current”, this summer is seeing queues at rapid chargers on the motorways, something that didn’t happen last year as everyone knew the chargers didn’t work. The solution is longer range & faster charging on more rapid chargers, & it’ll happen eventually.

    Hopefully with the addition of the id4 this quarter to the scheme, this will entice other manufacturers to add their electric vehicles to the scheme more and more, would love to see the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 on the scheme but who knows

    Don’t forget the kia ev6, which to my mind is one of the nicest and fab looking ev’s.

    Both of these EVs would be fantastic additions to the scheme but I think, initially, demand will outstrip supply and motability will not be required by the manufacturers.

    Hope I’m wrong.

    Well I’ve extended for 2 years, so hopefully the demand will be down and they will be on the scheme.

    Mind you in 2 years time the choices might be down to 1 car but you can choose the colours 😂.

    Kia EV6 £40k+ so unless the rules change don’t see this coming on the scheme. Also don’t see the ioniq coming on anytime soon. When the E niro even the base model is not on. So why would they put the Ioniq on.

    Sorry to disappoint, Fastbike, but the Invacar is only available in duck-egg blue. ‘🙄

    Yeah, pretty much the same thought here.

    That said: the Enyaq iV fits pricewise, and the sister car (ID4) is already on the scheme (albeit stupendously priced, but so was the ID3 and that dropped by 75% in price after one quarter, fingers crossed). Chances are, we’ll get that one eventually.

    Which i’d like, because looks-wise, it’s my personal favourite in regards to EVs.

    Is the Mazda CX-5 not on the Motability Scheme? If not, why?
