What is the Motability Scheme?


The Motability Car Scheme provides a unique leasing package designed for the benefit of disabled people. For over 35 years the Motability Car Scheme has helped more than three million get mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease a new car. There are currently around 630,000 customers enjoying the benefits of the Motability Scheme.

With Ocean you can choose from a wide range of MINI models on the Motability Car Scheme, each with a high level of standard specification including MINI Navigation, Digital radio and MINI Emergency Call, as well as offering unique MINI driving dynamics and innovative technologies.
