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.

Seating Options

Freedom comes complete with original Ford seating and can accommodate driver, wheelchair passenger and up to four additional passengers or driver and up to six additional passengers.


Ford’s Duratorq TCDi 1.5L diesel engine is renowned for smooth and quiet driving.  It also brings the latest in fuel saving performance, delivering up to 56 miles per gallon in mixed town and country driving conditions.
