Vexel Quovis

Posted on by 5

Quovis is a strange car specially build o be driven directly from a wheelchair for those with reduced or impaired mobility.

Vexel Quovis


In essence, Quovis is a smart, fully automatic city car offering all of the advantages of style, image and practicality along with unparalleled ease of access for those wishing to drive without transferring from their wheelchair. A single press of the remote control key fob instructs the rear tailgate and integral compact ramp system to immediately and smoothly deploy, affording unhindered access to the driving position where the wheelchair is solidly secured.

The ramp and the tailgate automatically close when you turn the ignition key. Dual electronic accelerator ‘paddles’ are mounted directly onto the steering wheel, which is in itself electronically assisted to offer super responsive power steering, whilst braking is achieved manually via an extended left hand push lever.


This vehicle is an option to the adaptations to convert a typical van or MPV to perform the same role, is cheap and offers you almost 100 miles per gallon.

It ’s a suprising car for person with disability. It is a great innovation for a fully automatic car and has a ramp system to easily get in the car.

Well that’s pretty neat, does it have an extra passenger seat though? If it were just for the city, it would be alright but not for high speed highways. It will be too dangerous for it.

Have a nice day.
I ask for spare parts for Vexel Quovis L4 Diesel.

Hi all, same as metro48 for me. I’ve been trying to buy a Quovis since several years without success.. To my knowledge, spanish have sold the Quovis company to the United States where there are a few dealers. I wrote to all the dealers, but they didn’t even had the courtesy to answer me. This is disappointing, it’s a nice product, I’m para and I have a quad friend who’s interested in driving with the joystick formula.

I note that this was posted relatively recently. I have been trying to find out about buying a vexel quovis but have been told that the factory in Spain has stopped manufacturing them. I would be interested to hear of anybody who has any contrary news, and also to hear from somebody who ownes one, and how they have got on with it.
