MV-1 paratransit van 

The world’s initial purpose built wheelchair-accessible car will be brought into the open eye upon Tuesday in Washington, in an eventuality meant to mark a 20th anniversary of a signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The car will be presented by Dave Schembri, CEO of a Vehicle Production Group (VPG) and Kelly Buckland, senior manager director for the National Council on Independent Living. During a ceremony, the MV-1 will be shown for the initial time to a public, with multiform hundreds of wheelchair users expected to attend a eventuality.

As we told you behind in November last year, the MV-1 is the usually a single in a universe built from a belligerent up to encounter a mandate of paratransit. It uses 56-inch tall as well as 36-inch far-reaching rear doors, allowing easy wheelchair opening by the 1,200-pound capacity far-reaching ramp. MV-1 can lift 5 passengers plus a motorist, as good as up to two brazen confronting wheelchair riders.

Under a metal cover, a MV-1 hides Ford’s 4.6l 2V EFI V8 engine, paired with a 4R75E Electronic 4 Speed Automatic with Overdrive delivery . The engine will be offering in gasoline as well as dedicated Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) versions.

MV-1 is versed with energy windows, journey control, motorist report core, energy adjustable, self folding side perspective mirrors as well as 6-way tractable driver bucket chair.

The MV-1 will be made during a AM General plant in Mishawaka, Indiana. According to VPG, a prolongation of a vehicle will emanate or save up to 1,000 jobs, directly as well as from suppliers. The first MV-1 models will proceed rolling off the public lines towards a end of a year. Prices have not yet been announced.
