The Ford Freedom™ is a new, innovative addition to Europe’s best-selling range of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs).
This impressive new car combines ultra-modern comfort and style with the latest in fuel efficient, environmentally friendly performance. Most importantly Freedom™ allows ease of access for wheelchair users, with the unique new EasyGlide™ access ramp.
With Freedom™ comes the ultimate in safe, secure and user-friendly wheelchair travel.
The innovative EasyGlide™ wheelchair ramp simply pulls-out from the rear floor of the vehicle to become an ultra-strong, low-gradient ramp. It can then be folded upwards behind a wheelchair passenger or folded back into the boot floor, whenever your car is not being used with a wheelchair user.
Once inside, the wheelchair is secured by high-quality front and rear wheelchair restraints, while lap and diagonal seat belts ensure optimum security for wheelchair users. Freedom™ is also tested and certified to meet the highest automotive and accessibility standards.
Our popular RS model cleverly combines full original Ford seating with the ability to create wheelchair space quickly and easily by folding rear seats forward. Alternatively, for a longer or wider wheelchair or powerchair, the RE model is the perfect choice. Here you can choose to have no seats in the back or to fit either one or two slim-line passenger seats.
Ford’s Duratorq TCDi 1.5L diesel engine is renowned for smooth and quiet driving. It also brings the latest in fuel saving performance, delivering up to 61.4 miles per gallon in mixed town and country driving conditions.
