    Are you looking to use the Motability scheme or buy/lease privately?

    If on Motability, the cheapest drive from wheelchair is the Fiat Qubo converted by Sirus with an Advance Payment of £8790 (or £7206 if on the War Pensioners Allowance WPMS) . All other 'wheelchair driver WAV's' have advance payments in excess of £11,995 (£10,411 for WPMS). It maybe worth contacting the various vehicle converters to see if they have any 'nearly new' drive from wheelchair WAV's in stock as these can also be leased on Motability but with a cheaper Advance Payment. However it is subject to what the converters have in stock at the time you enquire.

    The managed adaptions via Motability generally work out cheaper than paying direct to have them fitted. The range and prices are here: http://www.motability.co.uk/cars-and...tations-prices

    Is there any particular vehicle you are looking at?
