3 Wheelchair Van Trends To Look Out For In 2021

Is a new wheelchair van one of your must-haves for 2021? The New Year is just around the corner, and now is the perfect time to start researching mobility products that will help you solve your mobility challenges.

Here at Ability Center, we’re always looking for the latest and greatest in the industry to ensure we only offer the best mobility products money can buy. Here are three important trends and features to keep your eye on as you begin your shopping list:

New Features On Top-Selling Wheelchair Vans and SUVs

Our inventory includes a variety of vehicles from top brands, including Toyota, Chrysler and Honda. We partner with the nation’s top conversion manufacturers to bring you mobility options that are equipped with the latest technologies. In 2021, we anticipate exciting new upgrades from our manufacturers – and we can’t wait to share them with you.

If you’re looking to make a major upgrade to your mobility equipment and find a wheelchair van that exceeds all your expectations, we recommend the BraunAbility Chevrolet Traverse.

As the largest wheelchair SUV on the market – and the only SUV by a top-tier manufacturer – the Traverse combines the sleek look of SUVs with the roomy space typically only found in wheelchair vans. It is specially designed to accommodate even the largest power chairs. Removable front seats, extra storage space and best-in-class technology and safety features round out this exceptional conversion offering.

Popular Wheelchair Van Manufacturers Release 2021 Models

As 2020 wraps up, car manufacturers are beginning to unveil their new 2021 models – and that means brand new wheelchair van conversion offerings are being released as well.

BraunAbility’s inventory already includes the 2021 Honda Odyssey EX, which comes equipped with a side-entry in-floor power ramp, removable driver and passenger seats, quiet drive technology, exceptional fuel efficiency and many more exciting up-to-date features and benefits.

Toyota is also working with BraunAbility and VMI (Vantage Mobility Inc.) to accelerate the development of an all-new wheelchair van conversion for its 2021 Sienna.

Upgrading to a newer model of wheelchair van will help ensure you’re always having the safest, most comfortable rides.

 New Technology Trend: Autonomous Vehicles

One exciting trend is the rise of autonomous – or “self-driving” – vehicles. In Detroit, several organizations have joined together to create and deploy a self-driving paratransit shuttle to safely transport wheelchair users to and from appointments. An on-board attendant accompanies the passengers to ensure safety.

If autonomous vehicles continue to improve safety measures and prove effective technologies, the future of mobility equipment and wheelchair vans could become even more accessible.
