Mobility Ventures LLC, designer and manufacturer of the acclaimed MV-1, the only American made vehicle specifically engineered from the ground up in support of wheelchair users and people with other disabilities is pleased to announce its attendance at the Annual Convention & Tradeshow of the Taxicab, Limousine and Paratransit Association (TLPA) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Oct. 27 – 29, 2015, at Caesars Palace.
Mobility Ventures will be at Display Booth C Forum Ballroom of TLPA’s tradeshow floor showcasing two models of the MV-1, the only purpose-built vehicle that meets or exceeds the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The MV-1 SE Taxi Edition, as well as a customized MV-1 DX model, will be available for attendees to explore.
The MV-1 is redefining accessible transportation with a built-in side-entry power ramp, ample head room, and seating for up to five which includes the ability to safely accommodate two wheelchair users at a time, one of whom rides in the front and the other in the spacious passenger area making it the perfect solution for consumers, commercial use, and government fleets.
Additionally, the MV-1 – available with a standard gasoline engine or a factory-installed clean-burning Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel option – is more durable and cost effective to own and operate than a traditional retrofitted van or bus. It is dedicated to transporting all passengers, with or without mobility challenges with dignity, making it the perfect solution for both consumer and commercial fleet services. More than 2,000 MV-1s are currently in fleet service around the country, and being part of the General Services Administration (GSA) schedule makes it much easier for U.S. government agencies to augment their fleets with this innovative and revolutionary vehicle.
And at Mobility Ventures, safety comes first. The MV-1 safety record is unmatched by any wheelchair accessible vehicle, based on federal NHTSA safety recall data for aftermarket conversion vans. Additionally, the MV-1 meets all Buy America requirements.
Financing options through Bank of America are available for the MV-1 DX and luxuriously appointed LX models. The MV-1 DX features a two-stage power ramp that is easily deployed with the touch of a button. The LX model pairs the uncompromised comfort and luxury of high-end sedans with the best-in-class accessibility of the MV-1. Beautifully accented with rosewood, chrome, and leather, the LX provides a level of sophistication previously unseen in the mobility market. The SE model provides a cost effective solution for transit fleets along with unrivaled durability.
