Intercar International – Ford RS Cosworth

22 Aug 2014 | Author: | Comments Off on Intercar International – Ford RS Cosworth


Purpose built car defines new standards for user comfort and convenience.

Following five years of trials Intercar International (UK), has launched Toyota Porte and Porte Plus, the first purpose built wheelchair-accessible passenger car range in the UK.

Available exclusively through Intercar International (UK) the Porte range meets the need for convenient and stylish private wheelchair-user passenger transport. Porte provides a refined and specially engineered transport system at lower cost and greater convenience than most conversions.

Uplifting Experience

Resembling a standard passenger seat when inside Porte, a motorised arm automatically lifts it out to become a fully functional wheelchair. An optional self-recharging battery motorises the seat with user controls.

Passengers may also use the lightweight conventional wheelchair stowed under Porte’s rear hatch. Equipped with its own hoist, it can directly replace the passenger seat. Getting in and out of Porte is effort free because all lifting is performed by an innovative and very secure electric chair hoist.

Porte has a remote control sliding passenger door that maximises space for entry and exit with either wheelchair option. Once inside Porte driver and passenger sit side by side as in a conventional car.

Parking Porte is simple, with no need to leave room for a ramp. Porte’s side entry/exit system requires less operating space than a car door. Floor to roof height is an incredible 1400mm with very low floor to ground distance of only 290mm.

Simon Lerner Intercar International founder and CEO said. The Porte range is purpose built from the ground up for wheelchair-users and their drivers. It has many advantages over conversion. Its unique design leads to more user independence and there’s no lifting for drivers or carers. Also the wheelchair is securely auto-locked into the vehicle.

Porte is purpose built so it has great features and looks with original manufacturer’s build quality and international guarantees.

Porte is available to order now from Intercar International priced from #0163;25,000.
