Sirus Ford Drive X – Conversion Features
Optimum Vision and Comfort
Our highly experienced engineers worked with the ergonomic design of the Ford Tourneo Custom to recreate the optimum driving position intended by Ford. Your seated position and eyeline ensure you have optimum forward vision and allow easier access to controls.
The fully lowered floor means you should never feel like you are sat too high in the driver’s position. It also ensures the whole vehicle interior has a spacious feel, whether you are a driver or passenger.
Our rear entry drive from wheelchair conversion allows easy access to the driving position. The benefit of rear entry is you can park in a standard parking space and don’t need a disabled parking bay to get in and out.
Fully Automated Tailgate and Ramp
You enter and exit the vehicle from the rear so you can easily park in a standard parking space. The rear access control is fully automated using a powered system so all you have to do is press your key fob and the tailgate will open and ramp deploy. The shallow ramp has an angle of below 11 degrees which ensures ease when entering and exiting.
Low, Anti-Slip Ramp
Our automated ramp is below 11 degrees, ensuring you can enter and exit with ease. The ramp is designed with an anti-slip coating, improving wheel traction in wet weather. The interior floor of the vehicle is also designed with an anti-slip material.
Design Your Seating Configuration
Our latest conversion has a multitude of seating options. As standard, the vehicle accommodates three – wheelchair user in driver position, front passenger and one mid-row passenger. Our additional seating options are specifically designed so you can select the perfect seating layout for you, your family and your lifestyle. If you don’t need additional seating right now, we can fit additional rear fold down seats as a simple adaptation as and when you are ready.
Switch from Driver to Passenger During Your Journey
Another unique feature of our conversion is having the option to securely transport the interchangeable, OEM driver seat in the mid-row. So as and when you want a break from driving, your companion can easily move the driver seat into the drivers’ position. No heavy lifting is required, as the seat it is on castors. When travelling as a passenger in your wheelchair, you are seated just behind the driver, close enough to chat and enjoy the journey together.
Seat up to Six People
You can increase the seating capacity by adding up to three rear fold down seats, accommodating up to six people. We have selected the highest quality fold down seats incorporating an armrest to ensure comfort and style. When not in use, the seats can be safely stowed to ensure maximum space to manoeuvre your wheelchair to the front of the vehicle.
Secure a child seat behind the front passenger seat (testing pending).
If you need to transport equipment such as additional wheelchairs, hoists, shower chairs etc, we can fit expertly designed securing systems and storage compartments. We can also fit storage solutions for shopping which won’t encroach on your space to manoeuvre to the front of the vehicle. – speak to our mobility specialists to discuss your options.
We can fit a wide range of driving adaptations which are designed to suit your specific requirements. From push/pull hand controls, to more high-tech electronic solutions, one of our mobility specialists will discuss all of the options with you on your home demonstration.
Wheelchair Securing System
With the addition of an automated wheelchair securing system, your wheelchair automatically secures into place, negating the need for assistance with manual tie down straps. You can drive into the vehicle and begin your journey in just a few minutes.
