Best Hybrid Motability Cars 2023

Why lease a hybrid car on the Motability Scheme?

With environmentally-friendly technologies becoming increasingly important in today's motoring world, more Motability customers are turning to alternatively-fuelled cars, including self-charging hybrids and plug-in hybrids.

These cars offer much lower emissions but retain many of the driving characteristics of conventionally-powered automatic petrol and diesel cars, and bridge the gap between "normal" cars and fully electric Motability cars.

This is especially true of mild hybrids, which drive exactly the same as petrol/diesel vehicles but improve performance in addition to lowering fuel consumption and emissions. They're also available with manual transmissions

Hyundai Tucson Plug-In Hybrid

Hyundai Tucson Hybrid

This latest generation Hyundai Tucson is an absolute masterclass in terms of forward-thinking design. It looks like nothing else on the road, and still manages to be hugely practical, spacious, and comfortable.

SUVs are very handy for Motability customers who require increased space and ride height, while the added benefits of comfort and even a bit of off-road ability come in handy, too.

Tucson PHEV versions use a 13.8kWh battery that can be conveniently charged while out and about or at home in as little as two hours, making them ideal for carrying out daily duties on electric power alone.

Type of hybrid: Plug-in hybrid

Combined (average) fuel economy: Up to 201.8 mpg

CO2 emissions: From 31g/km

Nissan Qashqai e-POWER

Nissan Qashqai Hybrid

The latest generation of Nissan Qashqai is undoubtedly one of the best Motability cars you can purchase through the scheme, and has been at or near the top of the Motability sales charts for years.

Its success has been built on balancing out a number of areas that appeal to disabled car buyers:

  • It's high enough, so you don't have to bend down to get in, but not so high that you have to climb
  • It's large enough to feel really roomy inside, but not so big that it's hard to manoeuvre around town
  • The engine gives you plenty of power, but is also fuel efficient and doesn't cost a lot to run
  • Advanced technology is plentiful; however it's all well laid out and easy to use

Now equipped with hybrid technology as standard, it's moved the Motability car game to another big notch.

Type of hybrid: Full hybrid

Combined (average) fuel economy: Up to 53mpg

CO2 emissions: From 119g/km

The full plug-in hybrid (Kuga PHEV) powertrain offers users maximum fuel economy and a pure electric driving range of up to 34 miles.
