Ford Independence™ is different from other mobility cars in that, as well as various seating layout options, it gives you the option to choose where the wheelchair user is positioned within the vehicle.

Economy

Powered by Ford’s cutting-edge diesel engine, excellent fuel economy comes as standard with Independence™ whether you go for a short or long wheelbase model. Delivering up to an impressive 50.4 mpg on an extra urban cycle, you can have your ideal wheelchair accessible vehicle without sacrificing on value for money.
