Top 7 Wheelchair Vehicles for California Drivers
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) creates and upholds emissions standards in California. Vehicles that don’t pass the testing process can’t be purchased in the state. This applies to privately and commercially owned vehicles, as well as wheelchair accessible vehicles.
Freedom Motors USA frequently submits our vehicles for CARB testing, ensuring that they meet and exceed standards set by the board. This ensures that our inventory remains available to our customers throughout the U.S., regardless of location.
Let’s break down what vehicles from the Freedom Motors inventory are available for our customers on the West Coast.
Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave Wheelchair SUVs
The Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave are a great choice for anyone looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle that is #NotAVan. Their premium styling and luxury features offer a stylish and comfortable ride.
Both offer a roomy interior with plenty of room to make a wheelchair passenger comfortable, plus two deluxe bucket seats for ambulatory passengers in the second row.
Half-cut models are available with remounted OEM bench seats in the second row for those that need accommodations for extra passengers. Because half-cut wheelchair accessible vehicles place the wheelchair in the third row behind a bench seat, they are a great choice for taxi or rideshare drivers looking for extra seating.
Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade Wheelchair SUVs
The Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade from Freedom Motors offer a top-of-the-line wheelchair accessible vehicle experience. Both offer a sleek, one-of-a-kind look unlike any other vehicles in the mobility market. The arrival of either will be sure to turn heads.
Premium cabin features and a roomy interior will keep you comfortable. Available in full-cut or half-cut, there are seating options available to suit your needs.
Toyota Sienna and Dodge Grand Caravan Wheelchair Vans
With various seating configurations, options to fit two wheelchair passengers and Freedom Motors’ Superwide ramps, the Sienna and Grand Caravan are highly customizable to suit your needs.
*Only model year 2020 Toyota Siennas and older are CARB approved at this time.
The Kia Soul – Perfect for Independent Drivers
The Kia Soul provides a big personality in a small package. In a wheelchair accessible vehicle market filled with large cumbersome vehicles, the Freedom Motors rear-entry Kia Soul takes a step in the opposite direction.
The Soul’s compact size suits it perfectly for city driving. Improved visibility, a smaller turn radius and shorter frame all make it much easier to navigate a crowded urban environment than it would be in a van.
The Soul is also a great choice for wheelchair users who are looking to live an independent lifestyle. With an automatic rear-entry ramp, hand controls and power transfer seats available, wheelchair users can operate the vehicle completely independently.
