Here at Sinergy Motorsports we cater for all the different types of vehicles available to import from Japan. You have the Sloper type (rear ramp excess) and the Side seat lift up model.
Type of vehicles range from the Nissan Cube and Elgrand to the Toyota Alphard / Vellfire, Noah, Ractis and others. All these vehicles are designed with comfort, luxury and ride quality in mind.
Unlike the commercial vehicles you find more commonly here on the market which has never been designed as a disability vehicle, these Factory built vehicles have the quality second to none.
Toyota’s Mobility Division already markets a solution designed for the mobility handicapped, which involves fitting a robotized electric wheelchair inside several of the company’s vehicles. Toyota has been working on devices such as this for several years with a view to meeting Japanese Government-specified objectives for enabling mobility for senior citizens and mobility handicapped.
Sales of Welcab Vehicles and Market Share (Japan)
In recent years, the realization of a truly fulfilling society has been sought, where people with disabilities and the elderly can freely participate in society. With a philosophy of “providing comfortable freedom of movement to all people” as a response to that demand, Toyota has worked towards the development and popularization of the assisted-mobility vehicle, Welcab. In order to respond to the diversifying needs in assisted-mobility vehicles, we have filled out our lineup mainly through a development division dedicated to our Welcab assisted mobility vehicles, and in 2009, we expanded to a total of 30 models with 64 types, including a nursing care version used by caregivers to transport disabled persons, and a self-operated version that disabled persons themselves can drive. The nursing care version, which has sold the most, is a wheelchair accessible Hiace / Regius Ace with a remote controlled swing-arm lift that enables a person to board the vehicle while remaining in a wheelchair, and Toyota has received feedback from customers such as, “The time getting in and out is quick, and because there is little vibration, I feel confident.” Also, the company is endorsing the establishment of “Welcab Stations” in Toyota dealerships nationwide, and set up in a total of 104 dealers with 181 outlets (as of the end of March 2010).
