The Toyota ProAce offers many possibilities: here is a new one with a version dedicated to the transport of people with reduced mobility (TPMR).
Toyota wants to meet the mobility needs of all its customers, and make it accessible to as many people as possible. The Japanese manufacturer has just unveiled a new possibility of developing the Toyota ProAce with a version intended for TPMR (transport of people with reduced mobility).
The Toyota ProAce TPMR was designed by the French coachbuilder groats, one of the European leaders in vehicle transformation. It comes with several specific features as standard, making it possible to accommodate a person in a wheelchair, but also able-bodied passengers who have difficulty moving around.
We find in the Toyota ProAce TPMR a rear wheelchair access ramp. Equipped with a non-slip coating and LED lighting, it unfolds manually in three sections from the trunk, to facilitate access for a person in a wheelchair.
The removable step, positioned in front of the right sliding side door (kerb side), facilitates access for people who have difficulty getting in or out of the vehicle. It is supplemented by access handles in the passenger compartment, placed next to the two sliding side doors, to provide a useful support point for accessing the seats in row 2.
Inside, two folding seats, tilting and pivoting, allow one or two additional seats to be added in row 3, when a wheelchair is not being transported. These folding seats are available as standard on long chassis versions, and as an option on the ProAce Verso TPMR Diesel.
Several versions of the Toyota ProAce TPMR are offered: in two finishing levels (Combi and Verso), two lengths (Medium and Long) and three engines (electric 136 hp, diesel 140 hp, and diesel 180 hp). The Toyota ProAce TPMR is also available in two lengths: Medium (4.96 m) and Long (5.31 m), which offers two additional seats on folding seats, for up to 8 passengers.
The Toyota ProAce Combi TPMR has three seats in the front, allowing up to 6 people to be accommodated, in addition to the person in a wheelchair. The Toyota ProAce Verso TPMR can transport 5 passengers, in addition to the person in a wheelchair.
Orders for the Toyota ProAce Combi and Verso TPMR are already open, at prices starting from €57,400 VAT included, for a ProAce Combi TPMR Medium 2.0 D-4D 140 in 6-seater version.
