The Volkswagen Caddy 'Morelife' features a flat, level lowered floor, enabling the wheelchair user to travel centrally, between two rear passenger seats, for optimal comfort and inclusion. The Brotherwood conversion is the most spacious on the market offering 56 inches of internal headroom – meaning even taller wheelchair users or those with larger powered wheelchairs can travel in a compact, car-like vehicle.
Access is via a short, lightweight, counterbalanced rear access ramp, with an optional winch system relieving the effort of pushing the wheelchair user into the vehicle. Brotherwood’s unique STORQ system automatically adds tension to the rear wheelchair restraints – ensuring a safe and stable ride, and reducing the time and effort needed to secure the wheelchair.
By travelling seated in their wheelchair, the wheelchair user and their family enjoy stress-free journeys without the hassle of lifting or transferring into a standard car seat. Brotherwood’s inclusive layout ensures that the wheelchair user travels as part of the family, centrally and as close to the front seats as possible.
The Volkswagen Caddy Life conversion has already proven to be popular with wheelchair users looking for a spacious, comfortable vehicle, with a compact, easy-to-drive footprint that makes everyday driving and parking a breeze.
It would also be a great option for Class 2 and Class 3 mobility scooter users who don't want the hassle of dismantling their scooter before loading it into their vehicle.
