Style and Functionality

The Ford Grand Connect, available exclusively from OC Cars & Mobility Ltd, marks a fabulous new addition to the best-selling range of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs). If you like Ford, you’ll love Freedom. This stylish new car combines ultra-modern comfort and style, with the latest in fuel efficient, environmentally friendly performance. Most importantly, Freedom brings you superb usability for wheelchair users, with the unique EasyGlide access ramp.


With Freedom comes the ultimate safe, secure and user-friendly wheelchair travel. The innovative EasyGlide wheelchair ramp, simply pulls-out from the rear floor of the vehicle to become an ultra-strong, low-gradient ramp.  It can then be folded upwards behind a wheelchair passenger or folded back into the boot floor, whenever your car is not being used with a wheelchair user. Once inside, the wheelchair is secured by high-quality front and rear wheelchair restraints, while lap and diagonal seat belts ensure maximum security for wheelchair users. Freedom is also tested and certified to meet the highest automotive and accessibility standards.
