As electric cars become ever more popular, which ones are available on Motability and which may be on the scheme soon.

Which electric cars are available on the Motability scheme?

The Motability scheme gives people freedom that would they’d otherwise be denied and there are 1,000s of different brands, models and variants available on the scheme; but as we become a nation of fully electric and hybrid loving drivers, is the Motability scheme keeping pace, with our thirst for non-thirsty cars?

Well, there’s good news, as manufacturers ramp up the production and number of electric and hybrid cars they build, so the Motability scheme is beginning to offer all-electric cars as an option for those on the scheme and 2020 should see even more EV join the scheme.


Which electric cars are currently available on the Motability scheme?

Electric cars to look out for in 2020

Not all these cars will make their way onto the Motability scheme, but some will, widening the choice of electric cars on the Motability scheme.


Volkswagen e-Up!

A new VW e-Up! will be on sale in 2020. Its range will be boosted by a more powerful electric motor and a larger battery, which will see the range increase to around 160 miles, more good news is that the in-coming model will be cheaper than the model it replaces.Bright yellow metalli Volkswagen e-up!

SEAT Mii Electric

The long-anticipated SEAT electric Mii city car will finally go on sale in 2020, boasting a range of just over 160 miles; it’s likely pricing is set to make this one of the most affordable electric cars in the UK and perhaps one of the most likely contenders to make it onto the Motability scheme.

SEAT el-Born

Based on the same platform, with similar engineering to its sibling, the VW ID, the el-Born is going down the sporty styling route and reached from 0-62mph in just about 7.5 seconds with the electric motor producing 201bhp.

This car isn’t due to premier until the Geneva Motor Show, but should be coming onto the UK market later in 2020.SEAT el born unveiling in red at Motor ShowIt’s sibling is the

Volkswagen ID

Is a Golf-sized hatchback with futuristic styling which VW sees as the future of EV in the UK. The concept car was launched in 2016 and it’s anticipated then when the ID is launched it will remain pretty true to the original concept design.

It will come with a choice of battery options which will give a range of around 250 – 370 miles, which should be more than adequate for most user-journeys.

Peugeot e-208

You can look forward to another dose of French flair with Peugeot likely to launch two electric cars in 2020. The electrification of the popular 208 should deliver plenty of punch with the 138bhp electric motor producing instant torque to take the e-208 from 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds.

With an expected range of just over 200 miles, we’d love to see the Peugeot e-208 on the Motability scheme.

Peugeot e-2008

This model will follow on from the introduction of the e-208. It will be a new look 2008 and increased in size on the outgoing model. This new 2008 will have more of a crossover look and be powered by the same electric motor as the e-208, allowing a range of just under 200 miles.

It’ll be great to see this head-turning new crossover on the Motability scheme, fingers crossed we see it next year.

Honda e

This quirky retro car turned more than a few heads when it was premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017, in fact it was so well-received that Honda has ensured that the production models don’t veer too far away from the quirky concept car.

The Honda e will launch with two models and is due to launch in Summer 2020, it’s looks are very marmite, but there are a lot of lovers out there who like the fact it’s unique looks make it stand out from the crowd.

Audi e-Tron

A number of the Audi e-Tron models are due to join the German brand’s line-up in 2020, including the Audi Q4 e-Tron which is a crossover type SUV sitting between the well-established Q3 and Q5 models.

Twin electric motors will provide the Q4 with over 300bhp; it should launch late in 2020, but probably won’t make it on the Motability scheme next year due to its late release.

We’ll keep you posted when any new electric vehicles become available on the Motability scheme.
