WAV of the Month...Ford Connect Flexi

Ford Connect Flexi

The Ford Flexi from McElmeel Mobility Services sees our ever-popular mid-sized family vehicle updated to compliment the new edition Ford Grand Connect.This WAV of the Month Model is based on the Zetec model with an automatic transmission. 

Available privately or through the Motability Scheme, the long wheel base Tourneo connect is the perfect medium sized family car bringing the wheelchair passenger to the centre of the vehicle. Once again, the McElmeel Mobility Services approach to family focused WAV design ticks all the boxes.

The combination of low floor and low angled ramp means the flexi is a user friendly vehicle. When stowed, the ramp folds in two and locks in place to give you a quiet travelling experience with clear views out your rear window.

Available in zetec or titanium, manual or automatic, the Flexi is a highly specced car coming with Rear park assist, DAB Radio, Cruise control, Electric Fully Opening Rear Windows and Bluetooth as standard. Other additional features include 6” touch screen, rear view camera, front parking sensors, wireless charging pad, Sat Nav, the panoramic roof is standard in the Titanium.

With driver, front passenger and two rear seats as standard, you can add isofix options or have three seats in a bench row. The flexible design means you can bring the wheelchair into the centre of the vehicle, or taller users can sit further back for the extra head room. Our versatile seatbelt clicks in to an easy to reach seatbelt stalk and is adjustable to allow for easy use and proper and secure fit for tricky wheelchairs.

The dimensions of the Flexi offer a class leading 144cm in the rear position with our stylishly moulded roof pod in the Titanium. The floor pan is a generous 79cm wide and 190cm long, with 65cm between seats. In the inclusive centre position you have great all around sight line with 142cm of head height and a large amount of space behind your chair for luggage. The Flexi has become synonymous with inclusive travel with passengers loving the experience and comfort offered.

The flexi is popular with scooter users who love how easy it is to put even the largest scooters into the rear with ease. Quicker and easier than using a hoist, the flexi makes every journey easier and more enjoyable.

The Grand Connect Flexi has full European type approval and carries PAS accreditation making it available on the Motability Scheme. McElmeel Mobility Services are the first WAV convertor in Europe to hold QVM accreditation from Ford and as members of WAVCA and in cooperation with the VCA, our vehicles have been rigorously tested to ensure the safety and comfort of your wheelchair passengers
