♿🚗 McElmeel WAV of the Month = Ford Custom Freeway ♿🚗

The Ford Custom Freeway from McElmeel Mobility Services is class leading in terms of size and space giving customers a 9 seat vehicle which is also a 8 seat vehicle wheelchair

Available privately or through the Motability Scheme, the long wheel base Tourneo custom is the perfect car for larger families. This flexible and ground breaking conversion from McElmeel’s is another example of innovative customer led design. The split rear seats mean the wheelchair position is next to the original seats and floor is flat to ensure wheelchair passenger is positioned with rear wheels on ramp.

The Freeway Zetec is a highly specced car that comes with front and rear park assist, rear climate control and Bluetooth as standard. Seating Options include a driver and single or double front passenger seats plus from 4 to 6 rear seats.   You have a middle row of three original rear seat. In the third row you have a choice between one or three original seats. If you choose to have three seats, two of these will be tipped up to create the wheelchair space.

The height at the rear door is an excellent 150 centimetres and the floor-pan is 82 centimetres wide. The flat floor length is 86.5 with the seats tipped up giving a wheelchair space of 177.5 centimetres with the rear double seats removed, this space is 100 cm wide.

Inside, the internal roof height is 135 cm’s, giving an excellent eye line for almost every wheelchair users. Having a flexible wheelchair accessible vehicle that can comfortably carry 8 people including wheelchair passenger is a game changer for many people with larger families or care organisations who prefer not to go into the larger series of vehicle.

The Ford Freeway 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
