Wheelchair Accessible Cars
Wheelchair accessible vehicles, more commonly known as WAVs, are cars and vehicles that are specifically tailored so that a wheelchair user does not have to transfer from their wheelchair into a car seat. As such, there are different types and sizes of mobility vehicles. You can get small, medium or large WAV vehicles.
Small wheelchair accessible cars can come in a range of makes but usually don’t offer as much space. They’re suited for a maximum of four people, including the wheelchair user. They are always fitted with a ramp, rather than a lift, to allow access for the wheelchair user. They always have a lowered floor to give more headroom inside the vehicle and reduce the angle of the ramp making it easier to get in and out.
