Historically, wheelchair-accessible vehicles required the customization of a minivan by cutting it into pieces then reassembling it to be more accommodating. However, the resulting aftermarket vehicle would often lead to safety and durability concerns. Mobility Ventures knew there had to be a better way and began constructing the world’s first wheelchair-accessible vehicle, the MV-1, from the ground up.
The MV-1 is constructed in AM General’s state-of-the-art commercial assembly plant, the automotive manufacturer most well-known for the civilian Hummer® and military Humvee®. The resulting vehicle is both durable and meets or exceeds the American with Disabilities Act requirements as soon as it leaves the assembly line. This means that no disassembly and reassembly of the vehicle is necessary for wheelchair accessibility.
Aside from looking great, the MV-1 has many features that make it the perfect vehicle for Deano’s Senior Transit. We know from personal experience the problems that can arise with converted vans and knew there had to be an easier and more comfortable transport option. Here are some of the reasons we utilize the MV-1:
- Ramp Centered Design – Because this vehicle is built specifically with wheelchair accessibility in mind, the design started with the ramp and the other features we built around the specific needs of wheelchair users. In fact, the ramp is just as much a part of the vehicle as the engine, not an afterthought.
- No Conversion Needed – As soon as the MV-1 leaves the factory line, it is fully accessible for wheelchair users. At Deano’s Senior Transit, we are committed to providing a reliable option for your mobility, making this vehicle the perfect choice.
- Safe and Durable – When you request a ride with Deano’s Senior Transit, you can rest easy knowing that our vehicles are routinely checked for safety. Much like the Hummer® and Humvee®, the MV-1 lives up to strict durability requirements to ensure a safe ride every trip.
