Quarter 2 (Spring) prices are launched on 1st April.
Please post here any news and information on new prices.
March 29, 2021 at 11:29 am #143781
I have received an email relating to Vauxhall. I am not familiar with the source, so it remains unsubstantiated.
It states that there are a good number of discounted prices for Q2 for the Corsa, Mokka, Crossland and Grandland. The Combo Life (particularly petrol) prices are increasing lots and the Vivaro Life (the big 8 seater) is being removed (production issues) as a Diesel but remains on the Scheme with a reduction in price as an Electric.
More as it comes in…..March 29, 2021 at 1:44 pm #143793
We are seeing a general trend for Advance Payments to increase, presently there are 27.3% of vehicles on the Scheme on offer at £500 Advance Payment or less, this was 30.8% only 3 months ago and this time last year it was 37.5%. Vehicles under £1500 Advance Payment is presently 57.6%, three months ago it was 62.6% and in this Quarter last year it stood at 67.1%.
The Under 25’s continue to be hit hard too, presently there are 545 vehicles available, three months ago 608 and in this quarter last year 677. This is partly due to electric and PHEV cars having a bhp output well in advance of the 120bhp limit, but also due to draconian insurance groups being issued for new cars.March 29, 2021 at 1:55 pm #143795SJM01Participant
Just to add to the Vauxhall issues I had ordered a combo life in December and received this from the Motability sales person where i ordered the car
“There have been significant production cuts for Combo Life. Sold orders are planned to be built in September 2021. Build is dependant on total production availability, order intake and material restrictions. Please quote October 2021 delivery for September 2021 build”March 29, 2021 at 4:42 pm #143809

Ahh my favourite time of the quarterMarch 31, 2021 at 8:30 am #143964
I see Ford have added a new 2.5 petrol self charging hybrid with 187bhp and claimed economy of 43 mpg to the Kuga, S-Max and Galaxy – hopefully these will be added to the Scheme shortly.March 31, 2021 at 9:14 am #143970
I can’t quote this as gospel, as it’s only what my dealer has told me based on word of mouth (which may turn out to be wrong!) but BMW prices set to remain the same for Q2 with the 3 Series Touring sadly not returning.March 31, 2021 at 9:55 am #143976Shellie
I’m sat with baited breath to see prices on bmw xline and xc40 Volvo can’t decide what I want but need to order one arghhhMarch 31, 2021 at 10:11 am #143978OscarmaxParticipant

In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.

Both are great cars Shellie. Having watched and read more reviews on both cars than I’d care to admit, the summary seems to be that the BMW is a better ‘drivers’ car and more ‘car like’ to drive, but the XC40 has more up to date technology. The X1 had a mid life facelift in 2019 but an all new model is due next year. The Volvo is a newer car, so the next stage would be a facelift. The ‘touchscreen for everything’ in the XC40 gets mixed reviews whereas the BMW, whilst feeling more dated, has a mix of touchscreen, buttons and dials and their iDrive is best in class. The seats aren’t a strong point in the X1 whereas Volvos are renowned for seat comfort, although some drivers of them on here report problems with the seats in the inscription pro model. The Volvo is quite thirsty compared to the X1, but is quieter. The one constant gripe with the X1 is road noise. So pros and cons with both and it all really boils down to personal taste. As I say, both are very good cars.March 31, 2021 at 10:27 am #143982Shellie
Thanks for replying we have the xc60 would have another tomorrow but no longer available the bmw does have everything I want as standard but the Volvo would need extras but my husband doesn’t like look of x1 but as I said when we in it we don’t see the outside ha I’m more a feature personMarch 31, 2021 at 10:57 am #143984

A rumour from a Mercedes Motability sales chap on fb, for those who like duracell powered things:
Quote: ”The Brand New Fully Electric EQA will be joining the scheme”.
No Advance Payments known and I stress that this is not confirmed information.March 31, 2021 at 11:51 am #143989

Motability has definitely been in conversations with Mercedes about it joining the scheme, but it will be interesting to see the AP, given the eye watering AP’s of the B Class PHEV’s which renders them economically unviable.March 31, 2021 at 12:19 pm #143991WigwamParticipant
The EQA pricing starts at £40,495 so no government grant.March 31, 2021 at 12:35 pm #143992Dante
Hopefully the Q2 prices will be updated quickly & not too affected by Easter holidays. I always love each new quarter – as always some good surprises & some bizarre (and still flummoxed by whatever formulae MO use to arrive at AP’s) but I’m hoping that they’ll be some more sub £1k AP’s on automatic SUVs 🤘🤘 & more
my gut it MO will continue the March on adding hybrids and EV’sMarch 31, 2021 at 12:42 pm #143993toni
