The MV-1 is created with the sole purpose of supporting the mobility community and designed from the ground up based on input received from wheelchair users and service providers. It is the only original equipment manufacturer vehicle that meets ADA guidelines.
A body-on-frame design provides the ultimate driving experience. With fully boxed and tubed cross-members that provide additional frame stiffness and durability, the MV-1 features a Front Short Long Arm suspension for tight turning and rack and pinion steering, de Dion rear suspension with steel-leaf springs and air shocks and a Ford 4.6 V8 engine, one of the highest volume engines ever made.
The MV-1 is the only vehicle in its class with an available OEM engineered and assembled Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling system option. With a 290 mile range and 29.1 square ft cargo volume space, it's ideal for fleet operations.
For your protection, safety features are integrated throughout the MV-1, starting with the anti-slip surface that covers the ramp and interior floor to give wheelchairs and scooters increased grip. While on the road, the MV-1 has Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to keep your ride steady. With passive and active safety features, it offers unprecedented peace of mind for mobility vehicle passengers and drivers. The MV-1 meets all applicable U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS).

While the MV-1 is produced with mobility in mind, it was developed for passengers who use mobility aids, not the driver. However, VPG has reached out to several specialty equipment installers to have any necessary equipment installed to suit the needs of each individual. These options can be discussed with your MV-1 Dealer or your local mobility specialist. VPG supports special applications by publishing the MV-1 Special Applications Reference Guide. This guide will assist installers with a wealth of technical information, such as wiring schematics, harness routing and locations, technical measurements and weights and balances.
