Why a Wheelchair Accessible Sprinter?
Sprinter is a showpiece of innovative technology. From the engine to the windows, virtually every innovation in the new Sprinter relates to the overall ride quality of the vehicle.
If you don’t already know, it’s the safest, most advanced full size van that’s available for consumers. Many of the Mercedes-Benz safety features are already built right in. The Sprinter’s built-in Electronic Stability Program (ESP) can have safety features like Crosswind Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Brake Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist to help you keep control and stay aware of surrounding traffic on your travels down the road. Starting in 2015 Mercedes Benz started offering a 4 x 4 version of the Sprinter which can also be modified for a wheelchair driver (only by In Motion Mobility). Other features include Daytime Running Lamps, Driver and Passenger Airbags, Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), Keyless Entry (Remote Unlock & Lock), and much more.
With the largest door openings and roof heights of any full size van on the market, the MB Sprinter can accommodate even the tallest of wheelchair users. This practically eliminates the need for a lowered floor for most users. Here are a few specs:
A Sprinter with the standard roof has a side door opening height of 59.8 inches and width of 51.2 inches. The rear door opening height of 60.6 inches and width of 61.6 inches.
Raise the roof to either of the two High Roof Sprinter vans and the side door height jumps to 71.7 inches with a width of 51.2 inches. The rear door opening height also increases to 72.4 inches and width opening 61.6 inches.
I’m sure you’re already wondering, with all the extra height, how’s the visibility through the windows? Well, let me tell you, It’s Amazing. Many of our clients who sit in a Sprinter for the first time revel at the fact that they can finally see out of the windows while still seated in their wheelchairs.
With these ample dimensions, In Motion Mobility can offer a variety of configurations for your mobility equipment needs. Lifts can be installed in the rear doors as well as in the side doors (most popular). We also have a variety of lifts available, platform lifts that are installed inside the rear or side doors (most popular) or our Signature Cassette Lift (Paravan) that is installed underneath the floor on the side door of your wheelchair accessible Sprinter.
Speaking of the side door, we install an OEM approved power door operator which uses the factory key fob to operate. Versatile seating options make the Sprinter a great choice for families and travelling. It can be configured for as many as 9 passengers + 1 wheelchair or as few as 2 passengers with 2-3 wheelchairs.
At In Motion Mobility we have built a variety of mobility or wheelchair accessible Sprinters, both commercial and consumer. With a variety of van body styles, from a standard roof 144” wheelbase to an extra-long high roof 170” wheelbase. You can start with a basic cargo van and have the interior fully customized or choose a well-equipped van from your local Mercedes Benz Sprinter dealer. If you’re interested in driving from your wheelchair, ask about our signature lowered floor driver’s or passenger’s position conversion. We would be more than happy to show you a demo. We look forward to getting you back on the road to independence.
