Just to illustrate the sharp and rapid decline in the Motability scheme over the past few months, I have just checked my short list from March when we ordered our current car and compared it to the situation today, just 8 months later;
Audi Q3 – Removed from Scheme
Mercedes GLA – Removed from Scheme
Ford Kuga ST-Line X PHEV – AP has increased by £950
Volkswagen Tiguan Elegance – Removed from Scheme
Volvo XC40 T5 Recharge – AP has increased by £1,200
BMW X1 20i xLine 4WD – AP has increased by £500
If we were ordering today we would still choose the same car, which thankfully is still available and has ‘only’ gone up by £500, but what a massive difference in just 8 months. I’m very relieved that we didn’t extend our previous lease.
Only time will tell if the cull in vehicle choice and the massive AP hikes are down to the chip crisis or, as I fear, only part of the cause and masking a much bigger issue.
