HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), a company that conducts sales of wheelchair accessible vehicles, parts, service and rentals announces two new wheelchair accessible sport utility vehicles, the BraunAbility MXV and Mobility SVM SUV available summer 2015.
Consumer choice in the mobility industry was primarily limited to wheelchair accessible vans from Dodge, Chrysler, Honda, and Toyota. While these options offer safe and reliable transportation solutions, consumers have demanded an alternative in the form of a sport utility vehicle or crossover form factor. In 2015 two vehicles were announced at the National Mobility Equipment and Dealers Association (NMEDA) that fill this demand, each for unique market segments.
The BraunAbility MXV is a Ford Explorer based crossover vehicle featuring an innovative “Power Glide Door” revealing an in-floor 28-inch wide ramp. Once inside the vehicle the front driver and passenger seat may be removed to accommodate a wheelchair. Consumers will appreciate the advantages of the Ford Explorer such as the six speed automatic transmission, EPA estimated mixed city and highway 20 miles per gallon, and the ability to tow, which is a feature many wheelchair accessible vehicles do not have. The Ford Explorer appeals to a broad audience with it’s sporty stance, car like handling and best in class fuel economy. More information can be found on the BraunAbility MXV Ride-Away webpage.
Mobility SVM SUV
Mobility SVM has been converting Chevy Silverado and GM Sierra dual cab pickup trucks for over two years and the Chevy Suburban and GMC Yukon XL present new vehicles in their lineup. Both vehicles offer the largest seating capacity of any consumer wheelchair accessible vehicle with room for eight passengers. The Mobility SVM SUV is ideal for large families as well as outdoors-people who will appreciate the four-wheel drive option. More information is available at the Mobility SVM SUV Ride-Away webpage.
Hal Compton, CEO of HASCO Medical had to say about the vehicles, “2015 is ushering in a new era of wheelchair accessible transportation options and Ride-Away is at the forefront. We see these vehicles as increasing the addressable market size with little destruction of sales in our core wheelchair van business. We will be one of the first dealers in the country providing our customers with an early preview of these vehicles and we will be taking deposits toward the first deliveries. I fully expect people to trade up to these SUV’s and as word of mouth spreads we will see more traffic in our newly updated showrooms. Our 2015 sales plan will surely be aided by these incredible vehicles.”
