New vehicle built for people in wheelchairs
Vehicle Production Group, based in Miami, Florida, has built a vehicle from the ground up to make wheel chair access easier. Production of the vehicle, called MV-1 standing for first mobility vehicle, will start in Mishawaka, Indiana later this year.
CEO of VPG Dave Schembri stated, “This is the first vehicle that’s been built from the ground up for wheelchair accessibility and the only vehicle that’s factory-produced that meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act”.
Approximately 54 million Americans have some form of disability, including 4 million who are wheelchair dependent.
Normally, wheelchair dependent people have to have a ramp attached to a vehicle in order to get into the car.
