Partner & Berlingo Impulse™
Partner / Berlingo Impulse™ Conversion – Drive-From Wheelchair & Up-Front Passenger
This innovative conversion offers unique independence and comfort for wheelchair users. Based on the popular Peugeot Partner Tepee or Citroën Berlingo, this new model mobility car offers the ability to drive from your wheelchair / powerchair or travel as an up-front wheelchair passenger. It can even accommodate two wheelchair users, travelling together.
Independent access starts from your key fob – just press to activate the automatic ramp and tailgate. Once inside, the fully lowered floor makes it easy to manoeuvre your wheelchair through to the front of the mobility car.
Drive from Your Wheelchair
Once up-front, an automatic docking station in the driver’s position will safely secure the wheelchair or powerchair in position, ready to drive from the comfort of your own chair. Driving the car is aided by automatic transmission and an electrically-operated handbrake. A selection of other driving aids is available to assist with braking and steering.
Your Peugeot / Citroën mobility car also offers added comfort and convenience, thanks to its class-leading headroom, eyeline and depth under steering wheel.
Superb headroom and eyeline also make this the ideal mobility car conversion for people seeking to travel in their own wheelchair, seated at the front of the vehicle, rather than in the rear. This can offer huge advantages for social interaction and/or personal care.
Some people prefer – if they are able – to transfer from their wheelchair to a fixed driver’s seat. However doing this from outside the vehicle can be physically demanding and not much fun when it’s wet or cold. The Impulse™ conversion allows you to transfer from your wheelchair or powerchair in safety and comfort, from inside your mobility car.
Two wheelchair users can travel together, side-by-side in the front of the car. Alternatively you can choose to position one wheelchair in the front and one in the rear.
