Wav-Evolution Kia Sedona

Finding a practical accessible vehicle in the UK can be tough and especially impractical since it's tough using a vehicle large enough to tool around.  With the trend towards smaller vehicles, it's almost impossible to fit a ramp onto any MPV in the UK market.  Luckily, Wav-Evolution has come up with an ingenious solution to the problem with their conversion for the Kia Sedona.  The ramp for the wheelchair user swings out with the front passenger door and allows the wheelchair user to simply drive on and off.  While the system does not appear to be powered or automated, it does provide a creative solution to a problem that is prevalent in the UK and other European countries.  Check out their site here.

  1. Hi, thanks for the review of our vehicle. Just a quick note really to pick up on something you noted - the door and ramp mechanism on the vehicle can be automated if customers so wish, a few customers so far have opted for the automated ramp, but as yet no one has chosen the fully auto door on their vehicle.

    Many thanks once again for the positive review. For US customers our partners in the US - Autovan, market the vehicle exclusively. More details on their site:
