Why Choose A Toyota Wheelchair Van?
As soon as the Toyota Sienna Minivan was available, there was a lot of interest generated in using it as a wheelchair conversion van. The good news for Toyota wheelchair van consumers is that from the start, Toyota was working to make the Sienna available with a low-floor wheelchair conversion.
Toyota recognized the potential to broaden Sienna’s market to individuals who are disabled, as well as to the rapidly growing senior population. As a result, Toyota was proactive in seeking out a U.S.-based wheelchair van conversion company to supply this market. Toyota selected Independent Mobility Systems, Inc. (IMS)—located in Farmington, New Mexico—to be their mobility conversion partner because of IMS’ quality manufacturing capabilities and extensive U.S. dealer network. The result was the 2003 IMS Sienna Rampvan.
Conversion Van Features
IMS was purchased by The Braun Corporation in 2004,
Now manufactured by one of the best and largest wheelchair van supplier in the world, the Toyota Sienna with a Vantage Mobility Northstar Conversion is considered one of the premier Toyota wheelchair vans in the industry. This partnership with Toyota has created new wheelchair van manufacturing techniques and processes that have increased quality and shortened lead times, making VMI Northstar and Summit conversions seem like it’s manufactured directly by Toyota. In addition, VMi New England Mobility Center set’s a higher standard than other mobility dealers in the area.
The following are some of the outstanding features of the Toyota Sienna wheelchair van:
- The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Sienna the highest possible front and side impact crash test ratings.
- The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy voted the Sienna the “greenest minivan” for its ultra-low emissions and high fuel efficiency.
By combining the Toyota Sienna with Vmi New England’s superior upgrades to the wheelchair conversion process, the Northstar rampvan provides among the safest, most comfortable Toyota handicap vans available today.
More Choices for Toyota Wheelchair Conversion Vans
While Vantage Mobility has been focusing on Side-Entry, Automatic Wheelchair conversions for the Toyota Sienna, other companies have been building Rear Entry Wheelchair Van Conversion with a Manual ramp and door. Some companies have always been exclusively focused on the rear-entry market and their customers were asking for product on the Toyota Sienna platform.
Some people prefer a rear entry wheelchair van because of their parking situation, the environment in which they drive or their budget. With a VMi New England Mobility Center Toyota Sienna, these wheelchair van consumers now have all the benefits of a rear-entry wheelchair conversion van on the Toyota Sienna that they desire.
Models Available for Your Toyota Handicap Conversion Van
Toyota offers 4 Sienna models, and all of them can be converted into a wheelchair accessible minivan:
- CE: Toyota quality for the budget conscious consumer
- LE: Familiy value with additional option packages
- XLE: Well appointed with many standard options included and many more available.
- Limited: Includes luxury appointments and standard options for those that desire the finest Toyota Sienna available.
