Looking for a hybrid on Motability - what should I get?

I'm due to replace my current Motability car soon. I test drove a BMW i3 the other day and really like it, however it is not available on Motability, so I would like to know what else would be a suitable alternative. I drive about 8000 miles a year (mostly longer journeys as I don't use the car every day) and need an automatic with a high seating position and supportive seats. I don't want a car from the Volkswagen group as I find the seats to be uncomfortable. What should I consider?

If you're after a hybrid with a high driving position, then consider a KIA Niro: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/kia/kia-niro-2016-.../ I wasn't aware that you could have a 2nd hand car on Motability, unless it had been handed back early to the Motability fleet because the driver could not drive any more.
