    Just wondering does anyone know if motability cover the cost of having a charger installed at home?  I’m thinking of ordering an electric car but the salesman at Renault says I have to pay for the charger as motability no longer fund them.  Just wanted to check if this is correct.

    This is what Motability say…

    If you are considering an electric vehicle you will need to have access to a charge point to recharge the battery and pay for the electricity that is used. There are two options available on the Motability Scheme. If you have off-street parking, you should be able to have a charge point fitted at your home. If this is the first charge point you have had installed, the cost of supplying and fitting the charge point will be covered partly by the Government’s ‘OLEV’ grantOpens in new window , which will be arranged on your behalf. We will then cover the rest of the installation costs, but if any work is required to gain access to your electricity supply you will be responsible for these costs. Please note that you can only receive an OLEV grant once, so if you have previously had a charge point installed which is not compatible with your next car, there will be a cost of £350 to fit a replacement.

    Sounds a good price, Matthew. No help from Motability of course for hybrids.

    Hi, thanks everyone for help I’ll double check tomorrow as salesman said I’d have to pay between £400 to £500. it does sound like grant and motability should cover costs even says so on Renault website.

    Kat25, is it the dealer’s Motability Specialist telling you this?  They should know better.

    If any of you guys have the August issue of the Motability Lifestyle magazine drop on the door mat in the last few days , page 60 , subject ..Electric Vehicle, it says “to help ease the switch to electric we’re offering customers an at-home charging point at no additional cost when you place their first application for a full battery EV ”

    So is that saying your first vehicle on the scheme ??
