Drive from your wheelchair
Now you can have freedom, confidence and independence. Volkswagen Caddy enables you to drive from the comfort of your own chair eliminating strenuous transfer or assisted help. OC Cars & Mobility can fit an automatic locking system to the vehicle floor which will lock your wheelchair safely in position. Depending on your individual needs and what is compatible to your chair, we will select one of two high quality locking devices: As standard, the vehicle offers one wheelchair space plus two seats and the option of securing a 2nd wheelchair in the rear. We can also provide as an optional extra, up to two-fold down seats in the rear giving you space for up to 5 people.
Entering and exiting the vehicle – Full remote control of the rear end means you open the vehicle remotely to allow the tailgate to lift and ramp deploy whilst you make your way to the car. From here you can enter straight into the I-Can, automatically lock into position, close the vehicle (again remotely) and begin your journey to wherever you desire.
Lowering suspension -The I-Can has lowering rear suspension. This means that once the ramp is deployed, you have a much lower floor entry point and a shallower ramp angle. It also ensures you have a smoother ride and a self levelling function so the vehicle always maintains the correct ground clearance.
Benefits of the conversion -Superior wheelchair user driving position which offers a low-level floor pan. Increased visibility – ideal for taller chair users. Re–located gear selector combined with electronic handbrake– for ease of access and increased floor space.
Standard driver seat for use by able bodied family and friends.
Tailored to your specific needs
We can provide a broad range of driver aids which makes driving possible for individuals who may not have previously considered it an option; From simple push / pull hand controls to full joystick operation. Once you have decided on the exact specification you would like, your vehicle will then be tailor made to your requirements. This vehicle is Safety tested to EC Whole Vehicle Type Approval standard.
