The smart EQ fortwo advance payment from £0

The smart EQ forfour advance payment from £399

smart EQ: A world of possibilities.

The smart EQ fortwo and smart EQ forfour already make access to the world of electric mobility more attractive than ever as they combine the agility of the smart with locally emission-free driving – the ideal match for urban mobility.

With 160 Nm of torque immediately available, the 60 kW electric car boasts exceedingly agile acceleration. One battery charge gives a suitable range for city traffic. The smart EQ fortwo and smart EQ forfour can be charged at a domestic power socket – up to twice as fast as before with the powerful on-board charger fitted as standard, depending on national version. The 22 kW quick charger can shorten the charging time at a Wallbox to below 40 minutes (10-80%).

Motability is a national charity set up at the initiative of the Government, with all party support, in 1977 and incorporated by Royal Charter. Their objective is to help disabled people with their personal mobility.

The Motability Scheme allows disabled people to lease a car by exchanging their Government funded Motability allowance.

At Mercedes-Benz and smart Hertfordshire, you can lease the smart forfour for a fixed weekly amount from just £54.71 with £0 advance payment.

With smart Motability you also get a new smart every 3 years, full breakdown assistance, servicing, maintenance and more.

If you receive either the Higher Rate Motability Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Motability Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP), the War Pensioners’ Motability Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

Scheme benefits

The Motability Scheme entitles you to:

  • A new smart every 3 years
  • Insurance, servicing and maintenance
  • Full breakdown assistance
  • Tyre and windscreen replacement
  • 60,000 mileage allowance over 3 years
  • Many adaptations at no extra cost

Ordering your car

When you visit the retailer to order your new smart, you will need to bring:

  • Both parts of your driving licence if you are going to drive
  • Certificate of entitlement from either the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA)
  • Proof of address such as a recent utility bill or bank statement
  • Nominated drivers’ driving licences and consent for their details to be checked by DVLA
  • Details of any previous accidents and driving convictions that you, or your nominated driver holds

Collecting your car

Before collecting your new smart, you will need to complete a signed agreement between yourself and Motability Operations. This simple online process is carried out at the retailer using your Personal Identification Number (PIN), which you will receive once your application has been accepted.

Finally, if your smart has an Advance Payment*, you will need to pay this to the retailer (Mercedes-Benz and smart Hertfordshire) upfront.

*Advance Payment covers the difference between the cost of your car and your allowance paid over the length of the agreement. Non-refundable.
