Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Options

Choosing the right vehicle to best suit your needs can be overwhelming. There’s a lot of information out there, and it can be hard to process it all and gain a strong understanding of the
available options. We strive to provide expansive information in a functional format. We hope the resources below can help as you begin your accessible vehicle journey.

Ramp Types

  • Great for parallel parking
  • Works for both drivers and passengers who use wheelchairs
  • Accessible parking space required, limiting parking options
  • Includes cargo space in the back hatch area
  • Some, but not all makes/models offer a fold-down companion seat in the second row
  • Available as bifold in-cabin ramp, or in-floor ramp
  • Power and manual options available
  • Accessible parking space not required
  • Seating options in both second and third row areas, depending on make/model/conversion type
  • Not the best option for drivers who use wheelchairs
  • Loss of cargo space in back hatch area
  • Parallel parking is not a good option
  • Power and manual options available
  • Convenient for solo caregivers
  • Prepare for entry/exit with the push of a button
  • More potential for malfunction of mechanisms
  • More maintenance required
  • Accidental button pushes could be problematic (think curious kids “exploring” in the back seats)
  • Less maintenance required
  • Less expensive than power options 
  • Less convenient 
  • Caregivers are often without free hands, so extra steps for entry/exit may be required

Vehicle Make & Model

The lists below provide an overview of what kind of wheelchair-accessible vehicle options are out there. These are the most common ones and come with a variety of ramp/lift options from different manufacturers.

can My Current Vehicle be converted?

If you already own a vehicle you would like to have converted, or plan to do a conversion in the future, you need to be aware of certain requirements. Requirements vary by manufacturer and can change from year to year. Things like trim package, hybrid motors, load level suspension, power doors and other factors all matter. Requirements may include:

  • Must be one of these Makes/Models: Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Pacifica, Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey**
  • Must have less than 50,000 miles
  • Must have a clean title
  • Must be 5 years old or newer

**as outlined in the MAKES/MODELS section, other full-size vans and SUVs might also be options, but these four minivans are the most common.

Conversion Manufacturers

Manufacturers are those who build (or rather, rebuild) vehicles to make them wheelchair accessible. This requires an intense overhaul of the vehicle and specialized process which can’t be sourced just anywhere. The two biggest players are BraunAbility and Vantage Mobility International, or VMI. We’ve listed other dealers throughout the country as well, with links to their websites for more information.

Mobility Dealers

Mobility Dealers refers to car dealerships specializing in wheelchair-accessible vehicles. They sell converted vans and other vehicles that may be sourced from various manufacturers and resell used vehicles. Some manufacturers also list inventory on their websites, so there is some crossover between this and the previous list.

If you are working with state or grant funding, it’s often required that you go through an approved mobility dealer to purchase a vehicle. For example, Medicaid waivers in the state of Missouri may allow you to access up to $10,000 for vehicle modifications. However, it requires working with an approved dealer for the purchase or conversion of a vehicle.

Since enGAGE Mobility supports Missouri families, we’re focusing on locations in our state or those with relatively close locations. This list is by no means all-inclusive of dealerships throughout the US.
