All-new Fiesta is available to Motability customers in Teesside

Posted on 20 Nov 2008

Motability customers visiting JenningsFord branches in Stockton and Middlesbrough can now take advantage of a new addition to the family.

The funky, all-new Ford Fiesta, which was officially launched and unveiled to the public last month, is available to those customers who are eligible to purchase a vehicle through the Motability Programme.

For more than three decades, the Fiesta has been one of Britain’s most popular and best-loved cars, with some 12 million models being sold worldwide.

Expected to top the Motability popularity chart and knock the Ford Focus and C-MAX off the Motability hot spot, the all-new Fiesta is available for immediate test drive at JenningsFord’s branches located on Yarm Road in Stockton and Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough.

“We are delighted to be able to offer the all-new Fiesta model to Motability customers and look forward to the new Fiesta being a huge success and further increasing Motability sales at the dealership,” said Jill Wilson, group motability specialist, based at Stockton.

The Yarm Road dealership has just reported an increase of 44% for Motability sales between January and September of this year with 158 models being sold, compared to the same period last year when 110 models were sold.

With improved space, better specification, greater safety and smart Kinetic styling, the all-new Ford Fiesta is available with a wide choice of engines and trims.

Motability customers can choose from either 1.2, 1.4 or 1.6 petrol and diesel engine sizes, three or five-door bodystyles, 12 colour variations and three equipment levels including the Style+, Zetec and Titanium. All of the models have five-speed manual transmission and automatic models are also available.

Other models in the Ford range are also available to Motability customers, including the Ford Ka, Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-MAX, Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy, all of which are readily available to test drive at JenningsFord.

JenningsFord also offers a number of additional services to its Motability customers, including the JenningsFord Home Visit Programme and an Adaptation Service.

The Home Visit Programme is in place if, for whatever reason, the customer is unable to visit the showroom in person. It allows appointments to be made at the convenience of the customer and in the comfort of their own home.

The Adaptation Service involves vehicles being specifically adapted to meet individual needs and requirements.

To qualify for a vehicle through the Motability Programme, customers must be in receipt of one of the following benefits: the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC of DVLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMA) or currently driving a government trike or mini.
