    Spoke to motability this morning and asked which BEVs are expected on Q3,”Mercedes EQA” was his reply. I contacted our local dealer who knew nothing about it. The motability agent did indicate nothing is 100% certain with list they have but it is on it.

    I really hope that is correct. Have been waiting to see if this car would be added in Q3.

    James I can only tell you what they said. At £40,000+ I’m not sure what the AP would be but it would certainly be a welcomed addition to the scheme.

    He actually said it was due “end of Q2”.

    Welcome back Brydo.

    I was in a VW dealership earlier today, and although nothing was actually confirmed, the sales guy did indicate * that the ID4. Would likely arrive on Motability soon, as VW push sales along?

    This Mercedes  however will certainly give it a ‘run for the money’ ?

     

     

     

    * he also thought that some of the ‘higher’ AP’s on the ID 3. would come down shortly?.

    Looking at their phev APs, I’d expect it to be quite high.  But a welcome addition anyway 🙂

    As the MERCEDES-BENZ A CLASS SALOON A250E is £5999 AP ,the EQA will be topping the charts for AP price.

    The Mercedes eqa starts at 44k. If this is true I’d see no problem the Audi Q4 E tron  coming on… It took along time for audi to add the new model q3 but I doubt the eqa will be added with that high starting price

    This would be a good addition, depending upon AP´s etc but with Q3 upon us next week it will be interesting to see which other electric offerings will be on the table. I wonder if Motability will consider lifting the BHP limits too as 225hp is becoming a little restrictive. I know its normal for Mercedes to leave off certain pieces of kit which then form part of an expensive add on . Not sure if they are following the same strategy with their electrics? And welcome back Brydo.

    Welcome back brydo.

    The EQA would be a welcome addition to the scheme if only to get more EVs from other manufacturers on as well.

    There are already a few cars on the scheme with more than 225bhp on offer

    @Richardw I never knew that, what cars are available on the scheme with more than 225bhp?

    Brydo, I was told the same too by Motability, 2 weeks ago. I also contacted my local Mercedes dealership and was told they knew nothing about it. Very strange…

    I’m on the verge of ordering the verge of placing an order with Volvo for the XC40 T5 phev but waiting to see if the Mercedes appears.

    Rachel the way the motability agent explained it to me was that manufacturers approach motability about certain cars coming on the scheme and they are put on the list whilst the manufacturer and motability discuss costs, availability etc. If agreement is reached it then comes on the scheme.

    The Toyota Highlander was on that list at the beginning of the year but never made it on to the scheme as the decision was that it ‘didn’t meet the criteria’, which begs the question why it was put on the ‘potential’ list in the first place! I flagged in Q1 that the Mercedes EQA was on the list for possible inclusion, but it didn’t make Q2. As others have said, the AP’s for Mercedes PHEV’s are so high that it renders them uneconomical for most people, so it will be interesting to see how they position the EQA if it appears in Q3.

    I spoke to our local Mercedes dealer today about boot size and she said it’s “unlikely” a standard folding wheelchair would fit in the boot lying down. She has only been in the job a few weeks so I’m going to have a visit over the next few days and try it for myself.

    Of course we don’t know if it will come on the scheme but better to have the information on hand.

    Brydo, with that additional  information about the wheelchair, I think I need to hurry and pay a visit to my local Mercedes dealership.
    If my wheelchair doesn’t fit, I know that’s out of the question!

    Many thanks,

    Rachel👍🏻
