Unlock everyday freedom with BYD Motability

BYD South West are proud to be working with Motability, the national charity that creates affordable and accessible motoring for people with disabilities.

The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange your government-funded mobility allowance for a brand new BYD electric vehicle.

The BYD South West Motability scheme offers a simple leasing experience. All cars include the cost of insurance, with up to three drivers, servicing and MOTS, as well as breakdown cover and support with charging.

How BYD South West are making driving an electric car more accessible

When you lease a BYD on the Motability scheme, we can also support with covering the costs involved with installing a home charger at your property.

Through the scheme, we can arrange for a standard installation. However, additional costs may apply if you require a non-standard installation.

If you’re unable to have a charger installed at your property, we’ll subsidise this with charging credits.

We understand that many people will have different experiences when visiting a showroom, so we are committed to creating an inclusive and accessible showroom experience for everyone.

The accessibility features at BYD South West include step-free access to the showroom, a quiet area within the premises and an accessible customer toilet.

We also offer attended or unattended test drives, allowing you to try out our range of BYD’s New Energy Vehicles at your own pace.

BYD Motability Scheme FAQs

Any driver with a qualifying mobility allowance that has at least 12 months remaining is eligible to apply to join the Motability Scheme.

The Motability Scheme is limited to one driver under the age of 21 on your Motor Insurance.
This could be the customer or an additional named driver.

There are some instances where the scheme may require you to have a tracking device fitted to your vehicle. This is done to ensure the vehicle is always being used at the benefit of the disabled customer.
The only data the tracking device obtains is the vehicle location. This is not always required and will be communicated with you clearly if it is.

Comprehensive insurance for up to three named drivers comes included as standard with your Motability car. As well as insurance, servicing and maintenance costs are also included.

As part of your BYD lease on the Motability scheme, we’ll cover the cost of a standard installation of an EV charger at your property.
Additional charges will apply if your property requires non-standard installation and if you are able to install a charger, you will be subsidised with charging credits as an alternative.
