In celebration of National Mobility Awareness Month, BraunAbility unveils its all-new 2021 Toyota Sienna Hybrid wheelchair-accessible vehicle, a hybrid wheelchair-accessible vehicle conversion capable of achieving 36-miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency.
BraunAbility’s newest conversion is designed to prioritize space and maximize maneuverability for wheelchair users. The thoughtful conversion design retains every inch of navigable cabin space and includes an extra-wide doorway and driver position for easy maneuvering for even the largest power wheelchairs, BraunAbility notes in a media release.
“We’re thrilled to be able to add the Toyota Sienna Hybrid to our fleet as a continuation of our dedication in providing state-of-the-art, industry-leading vehicles to our customers. At last, members of the mobility disability community have a choice in taking a more eco-conscious route when selecting their ride.”
