What is Motability?

The Motability Scheme has been an important government-backed initiative for those with a disability since being introduced in the 1970s.
The scheme entitles those in receipt of selected benefits to exchange their allowance for the lease on a brand-new vehicle from the likes of Abarth, as well as take advantage of full insurance cover, breakdown assistance, road tax, and more. What’s more, if you require certain adaptations, these often come for no additional cost.
