Elegant Chrysler Pacific Coming Soon

Car and Driver
A new mobility minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica, has officially been unveiled. The vehicle is so elegant that Car and Driver calls it “one of the best-looking van bodies ever plopped atop four wheels.” BraunAbility has designed conversions for people living with physical disabilities. Features vary somewhat, but here’s a look at what you can expect when you get behind the wheel.
The Pacifica offers power side-entry with in-floor ramp and interchangeable front seats. There is slightly more space than in its Town & Country counterpart. The interior styling is reminiscent of a Chrysler 300 sedan, and the luxurious two-tone leather and wood accents will make both driver and passengers feel pampered. In addition to style, the Pacifica boasts better handling and noise control.
The minivan also comes with great technology, with UConnect, a second-row entertainment system filled with games and perfect for long car rides. Chrysler is also working to make a hands-free door option not just for the rear tailgate, but for the sliding doors on either side available as well. Now caregivers and wheelchair users can operate the door/ramp/kneel system entirely by passing a foot (or footrest) beneath the frame of the van. And for anyone wanting to extend that new car look as long as possible, the Pacifica comes with a Stow n Vac, making quick clean-ups convenient and easy. A panoramic sunroof and rear park assist with stop technology are the cherries on top of the cake.
Bussani Mobility will start taking advance orders for the Chrysler Pacifica this month.

Life Rolls On: Jesse Billauer’s MXV

jesse billauer mxvJesse Billauer is a well-known surfer from Pacific Palisades, California.  Jesse suffered an accident at the age of 17 in 1996, hitting his head on a shallow sandbar after being knocked off his surfboard by a wave. The force broke his neck, severing his spinal cord at the C6 level and instantly rendered him a quadriplegic. Just three years later, Jesse designed a surf board equipped with a bar to hold on to, allowing paralyzed individuals like him to get back to surfing. He took his passion one step further starting the life Rolls On Foundation, an organization dedicated to introducing wheelchair users to skating and surfing.

WATCH THE VIDEO! Jesse explains how the Ford MXV has changed his life. You will feel his excitement.

Jesse Billauer was never interested in owning a wheelchair accessible vehicle because he cared too much about style to settle for a minivan until he was introduced to the BraunAbility MXV. When the BraunAbility MXV came along, he quickly changed his mind about accessible vehicles. He drives an MXV equipped with a B&D 6-way transfer seat, a push-button gear shifter and dealer – equipped hand controls, allowing him to transfer from his chair and drive. Now the Life Rolls On founder drives completely independently without sacrificing space or style. SEE MORE DETAILS
