Motability Scheme heads to Exeter to host its ‘One Big Day’ event for disabled motorists
Disabled motorists and their friends, families and carers can find out all they need to know about getting mobile with the Motability Scheme at its One Big Day event at Westpoint, Exeter on 23 July 2022.
Free to attend and with free parking, One Big Day Exeter will continue the Motability Scheme’s programme of events taking place throughout the UK this summer.
There will be a range of over 40 cars at the event from 20 leading manufacturers including Ford, Nissan and Hyundai. In addition, over 35 scooters and powered wheelchairs will be on display, as well as over 30 adapted cars and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs). Visitors can get advice from Motability Scheme advisors and gather useful information from Scheme partners – Kwik Fit, RAC and RSA Motability.
For the first time, Exeter’s One Big Day will feature the Electric Vehicle Info Hub – a one-stop shop for those interested in learning more about electric vehicles (EVs). Experts from Scheme charging partners Ohme and Easee will offer charging demonstrations and information on the free home charging point installation service available to those leasing an EV with the Motability Scheme for the first time.
Visitors will also be able to discover the latest EV app technology, designed to help drivers find the most convenient EV charging points available while out and about.
At the event, customer’s will be able to test drive a range of cars including many fitted with popular driving adaptations. Guests can book a test drive on the day by presenting their full driving licence to the test drive team. Visitors can also use the indoor scooter test drive track to try out different powered wheelchairs & scooters in a safe space.
Louise Vranic, One Big Day organiser, Motability Operations Ltd, said: “After the success of The Big Event at the NEC in May, we are looking forward to returning to Exeter for our first One Big Day event since 2019. We are excited to showcase our new Electric Vehicle Info Hub, and to once again give visitors the opportunity to test drive a range of cars. Plus, there will be plenty of Scheme experts and advisors on hand to help visitors find out more about worry-free motoring with the Motability Scheme.”
For families visiting the event, there is a children’s play area including a bouncy castle, balloon modelling and face painting. A drink token is also available on arrival for all visitors which can be exchanged for a free tea, coffee or soft drink.
Further One Big Day events are being held at the Yorkshire Event Centre (Saturday 13 August 2022) and Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre (Saturday 17 September 2022).
