Meriden, Conn. — Harte MV-1 of Connecticut is one of the few dealerships in the Northeast exclusively selling the first-ever purpose built mobility vehicle to accommodate a passenger using a wheelchair or any other mobility aid. This is the only wheelchair accessible vehicle on the market that is produced on an assembly line, not retrofitted. Everything from the door opening, ramp slope, interior lighting, floor space, and headroom is laid out to meet or exceed the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

“This vehicle is truly amazing in that it’s the first of its kind and is completely built with passengers’ needs in mind,” says Natalie Ramadanovic, general manager of Harte. “We offer a full lineup of MV-1s in stock for immediate delivery. We also offer free service pickup within Connecticut and 24/7 roadside assistance when you purchase or lease an MV-1.”

Harte MV-1 of Connecticut is already making an immediate impact on the surrounding community. The dealership recently donated a new MV-1 to a Seymour family in need of a handicap accessible vehicle for their daughter who is battling a brain tumor. It was provided to the family free of charge and on loan for as long as they need it.

“We are proud to be able to provide a vehicle that accommodates any type of need a passenger may have,” says Ramadanovic. “It’s our pleasure to be able to bring mobile freedom that completely accommodates a passenger.”

While the MV-1 is purpose built for the best-in-class wheelchair accessibility it also accommodates every type of passenger. The MV-1 was built with universal access without vehicle modification, another industry first. Some of the features include low step-in height, large seating designed to accommodate a 95th percentile male, best-in-class interior height, two wheelchair positions; either front or second row, optional rear-facing jump seat, largest single swinging door anywhere at 56” tall and 36” wide, interior room for wheelchair transfer, service animals, and ease of maneuverability inside the vehicle for any individual.
