As proud supporters of the Motability Scheme, smart is committed to helping disabled people get on the road again. The Motability Scheme is a national charity that is dedicated to helping disabled people get more mobile and enjoy their freedom. An affordable way of getting back on the road, the scheme allows those with disabilities to lease a brand-new smart car once every three years in exchange for their government-funded mobility allowance. But that’s not all you can expect to benefit from. On the scheme, you are also entitled to comprehensive car insurance, full accident and breakdown cover, replacement tyres and windscreens and more. There are also a range of adaptations and optional extras available to make your smart car unique to you. Discover more information at your local smart dealership in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.
We are delighted to offer a number of smart cars on the Motability Scheme. Offering a range of vehicles lets us take care of your individual motoring needs. Here at the Barons Group, whatever it is you’re after, we’ve got it covered.
We offer the following smart cars on the Motability Scheme:

Helping millions of people stay on the road for over 40 years, the scheme lets you exchange your mobility benefits for a three-year lease on a brand-new car. The scheme is simple, and it gives you the ability to keep your freedom and stay mobile on the road.
Simply choose the brand-new smart car you would like from a range of models, all at affordable prices. Our specially trained staff will help you throughout the whole process, making sure that you find the car that best suits you. Visit your local smart dealership for a test drive, and once you’re happy with the vehicle you’ve chosen, we’ll complete the order for you. It's easy!
You can utilise any of the following government funded mobility allowances towards a brand-new smart car:
The scheme is not exclusive to the driver if the claimant is under 16-years-of-age. Instead, their parent, guardian or carer can qualify on their behalf. For more details on eligibility and how the scheme works, please visit the Motability Scheme website.
With hundreds of adaptations available on the Motability Scheme, from simple driving controls to person hoists for lifting wheelchair users, you can get back enjoying your freedom on the road. Designed to help your drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair or scooter, adaptations can make a whole world of difference.
The simplest and most cost-effective way to arrange for your adaptations to be made is to take care of it at the same time as ordering your vehicle. This way, when your smart car is delivered it will have the adaptations already fitted, so you can get back on the road in no time at all. Some adaptations even come at no extra cost.
Our team of Motability specialists can help you establish what you find difficult with your current vehicle. Some issues can easily be solved by choosing the right model, such as an automatic gearbox for example. Our friendly team can work with you to find a vehicle that meets your individual motoring needs.
Adaptations are designed to make motoring easier and more comfortable. However, not all adaptations are suitable for every type of vehicle due to the compatibility of the car and the adaptation. It is important to bear in mind what adaptations you need before you choose your smart car.
Here are some adaptations that you could consider, which may suit your needs:
Adaptations to consider
|Limited mobility or control in your legs||Mechanical hand controls, electronic accelerators, steering aids and pedal guards|
|Limited mobility in your right hand||Mechanical hand controls or left foot accelerators|
|Limited strength in your upper body||Steering aids, remote control devices, easy release handbrakes and electronic accelerators|
|Wheelchair or scooter is too heavy to lift or stow||Car boot or rooftop hoists|
|Difficulty transferring from wheelchair to the car||Swivel seats, person hoists or tip-up plates|

A car finance agreement with Group 1 allows you to rent a car of your choice throughout your contracted period. At the start of the contract, you will be required to pay an initial fee as a deposit, followed by monthly payments over 2 to 4 years. Once the contract has come to an end, you will be required to hand the vehicle back to your local Group 1 dealership, or you may have the opportunity to make a final balloon payment, which would give you full ownership of the car.
Getting a car through finance with Group 1 offers the following benefits:
1. Build equity in the car.
2. Nothing more to pay when the payments are complete.
3. Sell the vehicle or trade it in for a new one.
4. No loss of money due to depreciation.
5. Low deposit and monthly payments.
6. Low APR.
Car finance at Group 1 is open to everyone; however, whether you will be accepted or not is usually down to your credit score. Before you apply, it is worth checking your credit score as some of the cheaper finance offers are only available to people with excellent credit ratings. Having a good credit score is the easiest way to get accepted for car finance, but it's not the only way. At Group 1, we have access to specialist funders who work with those who have a poor to average credit. Your monthly fee will be higher because you are considered a higher risk. If you keep paying your monthly instalments on time, then your credit score will improve.
The easiest way to calculate your monthly payments is to explore our new car offers, which will allow you to determine the best possible finance plans to suit you.
