REV Group launches Revability, a brand of wheelchair-accessible vehicles that combines its existing brand ElDorado Mobility with recently acquired AutoAbility.
The new Revability brand features a diverse line of side and rear-entry mobility vans for the consumer market and a line of commercial rear-entry wheelchair accessible vans for the taxi, non-medical (cot van) and paratransit segments in the US and Canada.
The rear and side-entry vans are available in manual and powered rear-entry access, in long or short cut floor plans. A number of chassis types are up-fitted including: Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Pacifica, Toyota Sienna, and the Dodge Ram ProMaster series, according to a media release from REV Group.
“This is a very exciting time for REV and the Mobility Division to be able to combine two great brands in the wheelchair accessible van market—AutoAbility and Eldorado Mobility—into one new brand—Revability,” says John Walsh, REV Bus & Mobility Group president, in the release.
As part of the launch, REV Group donated a Revability wheelchair-accessible van to a needy family, during an event benefiting The Buoniconti Fund, the fundraising arm of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
Via a new program REV Group’s Mobility Division established with The Buoniconti Fund, $100 for each Revability van sold in 2018 will be donated to the Fund—up to $50,000 in the first year, the release notes.
“We are pleased that the REV Group stepped up this year and appreciate their generous donation of a Revability van to this needy family. I look forward to working with REV this coming year with their increasing commitment to the Buoniconti Fund,” shares Marc Buoniconti, president of The Miami Project and The Buoniconti Fund, in the release.
