MOTABILITY AT EDEN HYUNDAI

The Motability scheme enables people who receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance to acquire a Hyundai car at a preferential price from Eden.

In recognition of the special needs of Motability customers, many Hyundai models can be ordered on the 3 year Contract Hire Scheme with features such as power assisted steering, automatic gearbox and height adjustable driver's seat as standard. Many other models are available on Motability Hire Purchase at a competitive price with free metallic paint.

HYUNDAI MOBILITY

If you don't receive the Mobility Allowance but do hold a blue parking badge issued by your local authority, Hyundai has a special discount scheme available which offers savings off the normal on the road prices*.

All of our dealers can supply new Hyundais on this programme and can also arrange finance if required (subject to status).

HOW THE MOTABILITY SCHEME WORKS

If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement, getting a new car is easier and more affordable than ever. Through Motability, you simply exchange part or all of that allowance to lease the car of your choice.

The scheme provides the support you need to enjoy worry-free motoring, including:

  • Insurance, servicing and maintenance
  • Full RAC breakdown assistance
  • Annual tax disc
  • Tyre and windscreen replacement
  • 60,000 mileage allowance over 3 years
  • Many adaptations at no extra cost


COVID-19 UPDATE 20/05/2020

Following recent Government announcements, here’s the latest information on COVID-19 restrictions and the Motability Scheme.

While we expect to see dealers gradually opening in England from 1 June, the impact of weeks of COVID-19 disruption means the Scheme will not open immediately for new applications.

So we can work through backlogs in both vehicle sales and purchases, we will take a phased approach for applications. Priority will go to around 43,000 orders that had already been placed before lockdown. We will aim to resume these and arrange delivery as soon as possible, subject to this being done in a COVID-19 safe environment.

Once this is underway, we will start to invite applications from customers who have had their leases extended during the lockdown, in order of their original end of contract date. When possible, we will also re-open the Scheme to brand new customers. As soon as we are able to start accepting new applications we will publish prices on the website through our car search tool.

While we know this news may be disappointing, we ask for your patience as we restart our operation after weeks of dealer closures and business disruption. It will be vital to phase these steps carefully until we are really confident about sales of returning vehicles. We will only be able to lift all restrictions on future customer orders when we know that we can sell used cars in large numbers in a properly functioning marketplace.

It may be some months before the Scheme has caught up with applications for renewing customers, so in the meantime, customers should expect to see more extensions to existing leases over the next few months. We will also continue to support customers with lease extensions should new cars take longer to be delivered owing to worldwide disruption in manufacturing or supply of parts.

Our focus remains on keeping customers mobile, and safe. Together with our Scheme partners, we have continued to support customers throughout lockdown, and look forward to building back our wider operations. This will include working closely with our dealer partners to build confidence in a safe and secure dealership environment.

We are closely monitoring the situation, especially with regard to the changing vehicle supply situation, and will provide regular updates here on our website. Our Frequently Asked Questions are updated regularly, so please keep an eye on these; if you have a question, you may well find the answer here.

Q. AM I ENTITLED TO FINANCIAL HELP AS A MOTABILITY CUSTOMER?

Close

A. Motability may offer financial assistance towards your car, adaptions, and more, but this needs to be arranged before applying.

Q. I’M NOT ENTITLED TO THE HIGHER RATE OF DISABILITY LIVING ALLOWANCE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Close

A. Don’t worry; we can still help. Contact us and we will advise on how you can obtain your ideal car.

Q. ARE PEOPLE OVER THE AGE OF 65 ELIGIBLE FOR THE MOTABILITY SCHEME?

Close

A. Yes, if you’re currently receiving the higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement. If you’re not receiving these allowances, you aren’t eligible beyond the age of 65.

Q. WHAT MOBILITY ALLOWANCE RATE AM I ENTITLED TO?

Close

A. You should have received an award notice from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) containing details of your allowance entitlement. If you’ve not yet received information, you should contact the DWP directly.

Q. HOW CAN I HAVE ADAPTIONS MADE TO MY VEHICLE?

Close

A. We’ve got ties to many Motability-approved adaption partners. They will provide advice and guidance to help you manage the process of organising the changes.

Q. CAN I HAVE A MOTABILITY CAR AT THE SAME TIME AS A POWERED WHEELCHAIR OR SCOOTER?

Close

A. Unfortunately not, as your disability allowance is used to cover the cost of the car and this generally consumes the whole allowance.

Q. WHO IS INSURED TO DRIVE MY MOTABILITY CAR?

Close

A. You can nominate two drivers to use your Motability vehicle. If you are a disabled driver, you count as one and can choose anyone else you trust. You can change who is authorised during the lease, and a third person can be added at an additional cost. Please note that restrictions apply for drivers under 25.

Q. DOES THE DISABLED MOTORIST RECEIVING MOBILITY ALLOWANCE ALWAYS NEED TO BE IN THE VEHICLE?

Close

A. No. Although the scheme is provided primarily for you, other nominated users can use the vehicle on their own.

Q. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY VEHICLE TO BE DELIVERED?

Close

A. That depends on the model type and if adaptions are required. We’ll inform you of this as soon as we know.
