Discover Independence

Ford Independence™ offers unique flexibility as a fully wheelchair accessible vehicle.  Based on the spacious Ford Tourneo Custom, this multi-passenger vehicle is ideal for larger families or small groups requiring wheelchair accessible transport.  Combining excellent accessibility features and ample space, this adaptable disabled car is exceptionally easy and enjoyable to drive.


Independence™ provides optimum accessibility for the wheelchair passenger. The low gradient EasyFold™ ramp makes wheelchair entry and exit easy and straight forward and, if you need a helping hand, there’s also the option of an electric winch.  Safety is of utmost importance, so every Independence™ is fitted with high-quality wheelchair restraints and full lap and diagonal seatbelts for all passengers.
