Thread: MV-1 Accessible Vehicle

  1. #11
    Research and development was like 20 million for the mv1

    If they have the cc community half that we'd have designed a better vehicle

    Mv1 is a joke

    I will add this to the first post

    An important question I'm being asked abut the MV-1 is it doesn't show the driver section without a seat for the driver from a wheelchair. There's no hand controls and other options. They don't see these conversions. First answers is as a 13 year owner of a previous converted van, ''No'' vehicle ever started ADA approved or in the thought of a physically challenged owner as myself except today with the MV-1. They were showroom vehicles ,sent to a local conversion center and thees options were converted which added 25-40,000 dollars to the unconverted vehicle. The MV-1 even in it's factory form is the most optionally ready vehicle. Because ever own has different needs and abilities, removing a seat, adding hand controls and any other options are at the owner's choice, still making the MV-1 a better choice. Also without a doubt , When it comes to my 13 years experience ,the MV-1 in 1 month of use, made up for it. Lastly, even my converted van needed added options and in my town ,my friends at Drive Masters are phenomenal http://www.drive-master.com/ so if you need anything in the MV-1 find a similar team in your area.

    I think it was poorly done for people who have to depend on themselfs.
    Google it and jay leno had one they showed and he asked about people driving it themselfs.
    Really was made for a transport van instead of indepent.
    Really bad move by this company imo.

    I saw one of these the other day on the highway...used as a taxi. Was going to take a pic but couldnt get the phone going in time...but I'll say this: One big honking vehicle, seemed to dwarf every car around it, lol.

    A year or so ago I was on a plane and the guy next to me started talking to me. He saw me in my chair at the gate. He handed me his card and it said VP of sales or something for the MV-1. He started telling me how it was built from the "ground up" for people in chairs. It sounded really cool and i asked a lot of questions about it. The last one I asked was about driving it. He looked at me with a shocked and amazed look on his face and said "You can drive?" I knew right then I was not interested!

    The Answer to a Dignified Ride

    It has been an experience throughout my paralyzed years that life will never be spontaneous again. I will always have to plan my days. When it comes to finding transportation, I would have to call a service that sends a big bulky van that was just a step from an ambulance vehicle. The next issue winch brings me back to spontaneity, I would have to sign up for a service, wait weeks for approval and then rely on them to be on time. Being 22 years old riding in a medical bus was embarrassing, it was hard enough trying to draw attention away from my huge wheelchair, I then had to get on this ambulance. Even finding a Taxis was impossible, there were no accessible taxis.

    Throughout the years I never found the answer to spontaneity until now. A vehicle accessible to all, fits the person in the chair and 4 more people. I can finally sit on the same vehicle with my friends, not plan a risky event and they drive in separate vehicles. This vehicle, the MV-1 taxis not only changes the dignity a person in a chair can experience but have spontaneity in their life. Every taxis service should have 1. Life would be a whole lot better, being able to pick up the phone and call a taxis anytime I spontaneously desire.

    You have until April 15, 2012 to feel and understand how this Taxis can change the world.
