2017 NISSAN NV200 Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle
This van has so much to offer: It seats 2 + 2 +1 and a wheelchair position. It has a large and functional interior space with options to easily remove features like seats and grab rails depending on what you need.
The exterior shape is pleasing and fits into any car park. A stunning white metallic exterior, the interior has patterned beige cloth seats that match nicely with black floor carpets, black, beige and grey dash. They also boast handy orange handrails to aid transfer in and out of the vehicle for everyone, these can be kept or removed as needed. Most importantly it is obvious that it has been regularly serviced.
The Vanette Life Care is a specialized version of NV200 Vanette with a wheelchair entrance at the rear. The Nissan engineers have created a simple and effective design where a wheelchair can be easily and safely loaded into what is essentially a small van.
These specialised vans are all custom made so they have different wheelchair accessibility features. This one has room in the rear to fit 1 wheelchair, 2 seats in the middle row, 2 in the front and one seat next to the wheelchair. The middle seats are bolted to the floor and can easily be removed if they are not needed. This gives the added option of a much larger space for the wheelchair occupant to use if needed.
The rear ramp is light weight and aluminium which is manually pulled out and lowered to the ground. The wheelchair spot has 4 Oval pockets to fix the wheelchair to the floor in 4 places, front and back. There is a video coming soon which will show how these work. Remember that we can move these points and customise them to fit your particular wheelchair if needed.
Being a van, they have plenty of interior room for passengers to move within. This is absolutely a plus for a wheelchair access vehicle especially if you’re travelling and need extra room for all the bits and bobs you may need to travel with.
Our clients often say it’s important for them to be able to see through the windows of a car easily - these vans have excellent vision for all within. Our clients have also expressed their surprise when discovering how easy the NV200 is to drive – the joy of powered steering means the van drives like a small car but with all the added space, versatility, visibility and comfort of a larger car that’s actually not that much bigger than a sedan.
All this value in a car for a price that is less than the price of a local aftermarket ramp – amazing but true!

Engine, Economy & Reliability
A 1.6L 4 Cylinder HR16DE petrol engine which according to Nissan travels approx. 14 km per litre which is good value motoring.
Toyota and Nissan engines are world renowned for their longevity and reliability which is why they are the main brands we now stock. As long as their car engines are well serviced, they are built to travel hundreds of thousands of km with ease. We’ve even seen a client’s Toyota with 1,000,000 km on the clock. The car was retired to a farm but still going strong!
