      We want to help you make the most of your electric car on the Motability Scheme.

      Following the success of a recent trial with over 5,000 Motability Scheme customers, we’re delighted to introduce a new way to help you with public charging, called Motability Go Charge.

      How it works
      With Motability Go Charge, you’ll have access to over 45,000 public chargers from 28 different chargepoint operators. These include GRIDSERVE, Source London, ChargePlace Scotland, ESB, Geniepoint, Shell Recharge, Osprey and many more – all through one mobile app and charging card.

      It’s completely free to sign up and there are no monthly subscription fees.

      Plus, unlike other charging apps, there’s no need to add funds to your account before you charge and no pre-authorisation fees. You’ll just need to pay for the energy you use.

      Joining Motability Go Charge
      You can join Motability Go Charge even if you already have a home chargepoint or a subscription to the bp pulse network.

      Let us know you want to join, and we’ll send you a welcome pack with your very own Motability Go Charge card and a user guide to help you get started.

            Lets not be silly, Motability tell you something useful? 🙂

            Got the email earlier, can’t really see it be any use to me, I have the Electroverse card and will do very little if any public charging given my usual driving routine. I did try the 350kW Fastned chargers a couple of weeks ago as my home charger hadn’t been installed yet, very good (but expensive!), sausage & bacon bun and a hot drink in Greggs while I waited, 20mins and car was fully charged from 20 to 100%.

            Please excuse spelling/typos. Apart from being a clot it turns out I had one on my cerebellum that's now causing various problems!

              Always good to see another all in one card, more useful than Electroverse as it includes ChargePlace Scotland, but don’t forget the free discounts on charging prices given by Electroverse if you are an Octopus intelligent or go customer.

              I’ve applied for one, only to use where Electroverse doesn’t operate.

                I have had mine for about 3 months and unfortunately the card isn’t universally acceptable by all chargers unlike Electroverse which I’ve pretty much used here and in France without an issue.

                Also can only filter by charger speed, connector type and hub but not by accessibility on the app.

                          The card is linked to your bank/credit card when you setup your details.  The good thing about the Motability card is that it doesn’t take a prepayment from your account unlike some other charger companies.  I don’t charge publicly very often but when I used the Motability one it was straight forward enough and saves having lots of different accounts with prepayment needed.

                                Expensive but still cheaper than petrol!.

                                Compared to other fast chargers “near” me that was the cheapest at 69p/kWh using the Electroverse card.

                                Most expensive home charge so far has been around £3.20 to add 145 miles of range, about 42kWh at 7.5p/kWh, so a much more sensible cost 🙂

                                Working out about 2.2p/Mile, about 1/8th the cost of the petrol Ateca at 18p/Mile (36mpg).  In the warmer weather with the increased range per kWh that should drop below 2p/Mile if I behave myself 🙂

                                  So, why is this better than a multitude of other charge cards?

                                  Hyundai drivers already have access to their card and other manufacturers will have their own some may give actual discounts over non subscription prices.  Then there’s the likes of Electroverse which is free, well connected and for Octopus customers comes with a discount on most suppliers.

                                  I was hoping for Motability to throw some money in and cover a 36 month subscription giving a decent discount.
