TOPIC: SIRUS ACHIEVES SUCCESS AT NAIDEX

SIRUS ACHIEVES SUCCESS AT NAIDEX 6 years 11 months ago #179

Sirus Automotive, the leading accessible vehicle conversion specialist, experienced high enquiry levels at Naidex (29th April – 1st May) regarding its upfront wheelchair passenger solutions and new ‘We-Can Flex’ wheelchair accessible car.


Sirus is highly respected in the mobility sector for its high quality car adaptations which allow wheelchair passengers to travel upfront alongside the driver. Building on this heritage and to offer more practicality to families, Sirus Automotive has launched the We-Can Flex that is designed for wheelchair users who prefer to travel in the rear of a vehicle. Based on the Volkswagen Caddy, this vehicle offers the ideal seating layout for a family as the adult or child with a disability can still travel in close proximity with fellow passengers. When the wheelchair user does not need to travel, the interior can be reconfigured back to a standard five-seater car.



Simon Pearson, Sirus Automotive Managing Director said: “We have been delighted with the enquiry levels received at Naidex regarding our new We-Can Flex and existing upfront wheelchair passenger vehicles. Visitors to the Sirus stand were extremely impressed with the flexibility and practicality that all our cars provide. We believe this latest Sirus wheelchair accessible car, the We-Can Flex, will once again provide significant lifestyle benefits and travel convenience for many individuals living with restricted mobility.’



Showcased alongside the new We-Can Flex, Sirus also exhibited a selection of adapted WAV models from its established range which included the ‘U-Can and ‘Switch’. The ‘Switch’ is Sirus’ most affordable conversion to date and offers owners total flexibility – they can either drive from their wheelchair, or travel up front as a passenger without the need to transfer. Several accessible conversions were also available for test drives around the NEC complex including the ‘Active’ and ‘I-Can’. Sirus received significant interest from high numbers of NEC visitors, heightened by its leading Motability approved status and comprehensive three-year warranties.
