Brunswick Mobility Professionals Now Offers Universally Accessible MV-1 Vehicle

NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ, September 8, 2014 – Brunswick Mobility Professionals, the only full service Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle dealer and Automotive Service Center in the state of New Jersey, now offers the universally accessible MV-1 vehicle at their showroom located at 1490 US Route 1 North, North Brunswick, New Jersey.

Designed and manufactured by Mobility Ventures LLC, the MV-1 is the only American-made, factory-built mobility vehicle that meets or exceeds the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Engineered to provide a superior quality, innovative mode of transit for consumers with or without accessibility concerns, the MV-1 meets all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

“The MV-1 is a dream ride for drivers and passengers using wheelchairs,” says Bob Schickler, President of Brunswick Mobility. “The doors are 3 feet wide and 5 feet high with an extended ramp. Beyond the basics, the MV–1 is highly customizable. It is not a modified van; it is designed and built specifically for people who are wheelchair users.” This ground-up approach maximizes passenger comfort, cargo space and overall capacity of the vehicle. The drive train is a Ford V8, 4.6 liter engine with a box-frame chassis, giving you the stability and durability of a truck in a vehicle that drives like a car.

The versatile MV-1 is well-suited for families with a range of mobility needs or for commercial clients such as limousine fleets, where both accessibility and cargo space are required. Local transportation companies will find a cost-efficient opportunity in the MV-1, as it easily carries a driver, a wheelchair and 3-4 additional passengers. The MV-1 can be ordered with a compressed natural gas fueling system as well, making it a premier green option in the mobility market.

From MV-1 President, Rick Smith: “The MV-1 fills a significant void in consumer, government and transportation fleet markets while providing unsurpassed accessibility, safety and comfort for its passengers. We’re so pleased that Brunswick Mobility is has joined us as one of our New Jersey based dealers.”
