Vantage Mobility International (VMI) recently launched the first-ever all-wheel drive wheelchair accessible minivan. Built on the 2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid chassis, this new conversion features a unique patented wheel well cover design that more closely resembles an unconverted vehicle. According to the press release, this design feature is in response to customer feedback and reduces the gap commonly seen with wheelchair vans and creates a sleek OEM look while improving the aerodynamics.
“We’re building more than just a mode of transportation for customers. Our accessible vehicles create a gateway to independent mobility while providing customers with robust features that increase convenience, maintain safety, and heighten the riding experience,” said Mark Shaughnessy, CEO of Vantage Mobility International. “As a leader in the mobility industry, we must keep stretching our abilities to design products that are both functional and have attributes that our customers deserve for optimum vehicle ownership.”
