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