Peugeot Electric Motability Cars
Struans, based in Dundee and Perth, are your local Peugeot dealer who can help you will all your new and used car needs, including motability cars if you qualify for the motability allowance.
What is the motability scheme?
The motability scheme determines whether you are eligible for allowances to put towards a brand-new car, to help you get about if you or your dependant has long term health issues.
In Scotland, there are two separate components; Child Disability Payment and Adult Disability Payment. Child Disability Payment will replace DLA and Adult Disability Payment will replace PIP.
There are also components that cover veterans and department for work and pensions.
You can check to see if you are eligible for the motability scheme before speaking to us here at Struans.

Choosing an electric vehicle can reduce your monthly outgoings as you won’t be needing to visit the petrol station every few days and charging your car at home is much cheaper.
The Peugeot range has several electric or hybrid options that are also available on the motability scheme.
The Peugeot e-208 is a compact hatchback designed for city centre environments thanks to the small size and wide range of driver assist features.
When the battery is at full capacity, the Peugeot e-208 can reach up to 225 miles, meaning you don’t have that range anxiety associated with cars that offer lower range.
You can expect a charge time of 7.5 hours using a 7kW wall box or 24 hours using a standard 3 pin plug socket (although this charging method is not recommended).
The Peugeot 2008 is a family sized SUV that can also easily navigate city streets and is economically and environmentally friendly.
There’s no need to wait around waiting for the Peugeot e-2008 to charge as you can expect a charge time of just 30 minutes using a public charge point.
If you have a 7.4 kW wall box, you can charge up in 7.5 hours or 24 hours using a 3-pin plug socket, although this is not recommended.
