Did you know that there are around 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK alone? Making up roughly 2% of the UK’s population. Now you would think that with statistics as high as this there would be a huge market for WAV vehicles, also known as Wheelchair accessible vehicles. Sadly, very few companies supply these types of vehicles, causing a problem for anyone that requires wheelchair access for transportation. This is why we have teamed up with UBER London to supply vehicles for all of those that require it, and in turn make London a much better place for those suffering with disabilities.
The vehicles we will be supplying for UBERWAV will be the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Horizon as they are the most popular wheelchair accessible vehicles on the Motability scheme. They are ideal for both able-bodied and wheelchair passengers alike, and offer the necessary space required for wheelchairs and other passengers. Not only is the vehicle spacious, but it is also highly economical. With a 100 PS HDi diesel engine, this vehicle offers great fuel efficiency getting you at around 60 MPG.
