What New Cars Are Coming to Motability 2023?

If you’re thinking about leasing a car through the Motability scheme, you have an impressive selection of vehicles to select from. Many offer no or low advance payments as well as worry-free packages as part of their lease agreement.

Some of these models are expected to launch before 2023, while others may not. No matter what you choose, this guide can help you locate the vehicle that best meets your needs.

Abarth 500e

Fiat’s Abarth 500e is their first electric vehicle, boasting 155 horsepower and an impressive 0-100 km/h time of just 7.7 seconds.

Abarth says their electric model features a longer wheelbase and wider track widths for better grip, higher cornering speeds, and quicker responses. Plus, its lower centre of gravity helps enhance handling too.

Abarth offers its scorpion-inspired cars in hatchback or cabriolet versions, both sporting a revised version of their signature logo as well as sporty exterior styling cues.

The car offers three driving modes – Turismo, Scorpion Street and Scorpion Track. Each designed to bring out the performance of the Abarth, these modes allow you to customize your experience according to personal preferences and conditions.

Alfa Romeo Tonale

The Alfa Romeo Tonale is their first plug-in hybrid and premium compact SUV, joining the fastest-growing segment of the automotive world. This marks a new milestone in Alfa Romeo’s evolution towards electrification and connectivity that will shape their future.

This Italian sports car blends performance and aesthetics with economic efficiency to offer families the ideal blend of sportiness and economy. With room for four adults, it provides the best of both worlds – sportiness without compromise – making it the ideal family vehicle.

At launch, the Tonale is expected to be offered with various petrol engines including hybrid and PHEV models. A battery-electric version of the 4.53 m long Tonale as well as a Quadrifoglio model are anticipated later on.

Citroen C3

Citroen entered the Indian market in 2021 with their premium C5 Aircross model, but now they’re looking to expand their lineup with an entry-level model dubbed C3. This hatchback has been given some SUV cues to appeal to price-conscious buyers, though it doesn’t actually look like a sub-compact crossover – instead, Citroen describes it as a ‘hatchback with a twist’!

The car’s interior offers a pleasant balance of style and comfort. It has a comfortable front seat, while the steering wheel is just about perfect in size for comfortable driving.

The engine range is strong, offering two petrols and one diesel, including the 1.2-litre turbo we drove which packs plenty of power into such a small car. Furthermore, its price point is very attractive too – at only fraction of that of its bigger sibling! Clearly, Toyota has managed to reduce costs significantly since then.

Citroen Ami

Citroen UK has launched a website for potential customers to gauge interest in the Ami 100% electric city car, which will be introduced to the motability scheme 2023. Already sold in France, the Ami offers low-range, hassle-free urban transport solutions.

The Ami has a powerful 5.5kWh battery that recharges in just four hours, enabling you to drive 46 miles on one charge. Thanks to its small size and London taxi-like turning circle, the Ami is ideal for getting around busy cities.

The Ami is available in an array of colours and trims to match your interior. With its quirky exterior design, you’re sure to turn heads wherever you go. To reserve one for yourself, pay a refundable reservation fee of PS250 and join the queue!

Nissan X-Trail

The Nissan X-Trail is one of the world’s most beloved family adventure vehicles. Now in its fourth generation, this model has been redesigned with a more contemporary and muscular appearance to reflect an upgraded premium and rugged design language.

It’s 20mm wider and 15mm taller, offering a roomier interior layout. This makes it ideal for families; five-seater models can even fit two occasional chairs in the boot (if you don’t plan on transporting any adults)!

The X-Trail can be equipped with either a 2.5-litre petrol engine or the mild hybrid powertrain in e-Power form. This latter model lacks direct connection to the front wheels and instead relies on a 201bhp electric motor – though it still requires fuel every few thousand miles for optimal performance.
