Thousands of people throughout Britain will qualify to drive the new MG6 models under the Motability Car Scheme for disabled people.

MG dealers across the country are set to offer the award-winning MG6 GT when they join the Motability network from April 3.

Motability allows people who receive certain disability allowances to lease a new car. Nearly 600,000 people currently use the Scheme.*

It allows disabled people who qualify to lease a new car every three years and the package includes insurance, servicing and maintenance, full RAC breakdown assistance and annual car tax. Even non-drivers are eligible and are able to nominate a driver, providing they live within five miles of them, under Motability’s guidelines.

Andrew Lowerson, MG Motor UK’s Product Manager, said: “The MG6 is particularly suited to many Motability users because it has an extremely roomy cabin and the boot capacity is class-leading. It’s also a car that’s easy to drive and has a host of extras as standard so the value for money is outstanding.

“Our dealers who have signed up to the Motability network will be able to guide people through the scheme and show them the MG6 models in great detail.”

Mike Betts, chief executive, Motability Operations, said: “It’s always great news when a manufacturer joins the Motability Scheme as it adds to the wide range of affordable choices available for our customers.

“We welcome MG Motor to the Scheme and look forward to working together.”

* Anyone who receives the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, can exchange this weekly payment for a new car through Motability.
