21st August, 2005

Renault Australia has joined forces with Fleetworks Mobility Pty Ltd to develop a wheelchair accessible vehicle, based on its popular Kangoo minivan, the only vehicle in its segment available with automatic transmission.

The converted Kangoo is available in two variants – the Freewheeler Kangoo and the Freewheeler Kangoo Elite - accommodating up to five occupants including the wheelchair. One to two seats are removable for flexibility.

The Kangoo offers the Freewheeler easy-load wheelchair system, sliding doors on both sides and dual airbags, while the Freewheeler Kangoo Elite adds a lift-up tailgate, colour coded bumpers and mirrors, fog lights, rear speakers and an elite trim level.

These features compliment an already highly equipped vehicle with the standard Kangoo offering keyless entry, power front windows and mirrors, air-conditioning, power steering, engine immobiliser and optional automatic transmission.

Adam Le Fevre, Renault Australia’s National Fleet and Commercial Vehicles Manager commented that the new Kangoo Freewheeler offered enhanced facilities for people with disabilities.

“The Freewheeler Kangoo is brilliant, with the key benefits being versatility, comfort and high equipment levels. This vehicle will provide affordable alternatives for people in this specialized market.” he said.

Mr David Syer from Fleetworks Mobility believes the new easy-load wheelchair system is user-friendly and adaptable.

“The system eliminates the need to kneel down or strain to secure the wheelchair which makes it suitable for people of all ages to use.” he said.
