A Vehicle Measured by Wheelchair Access

A Miami company that had come to the New York auto show in 2007 to unveil a new taxi that had seating for four in the rear and room for a wheelchair, is about to tour the country to show off a similar vehicle, but this time wheelchair access is taking center stage.

The vehicle, the MV-1 (for the first mobility vehicle), has been designed and engineered to offer easy access for wheelchairs. It  features a manual access ramp (designed to withstand heavy power wheelchairs); an anti-slip floor and ramp surface; and a restraint system to secure the wheelchair. It also includes a spacious entry way and interior, which allows the wheelchair or scooter user to easily maneuver to be able to sit in the front, next to the driver.
