Mercedes-Benz V-Class

The Ultimate Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.


Long, Level Lowered Floor ​  4 Seats + Wheelchair   7 Speed Automatic with Powerful Engines  Powered Ramp & Tailgate 


The Brotherwood® ‘Klastar’ Mercedes-Benz V-Class conversion is designed and engineered from the ground up at our manufacturing facility in Dorset, England, to be the ultimate Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.

The Klastar conversion is unique in it’s development, handbuilt and finished by a select team of our most experienced engineers; ensuring a quality of finish and craftsmanship a class above any other Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.

COMFORT
At the heart of the Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is a perfectly level, lowered floor. This unique Brotherwood® design offers numerous benefits for the wheelchair user. By lowering the floor, the visibility for the wheelchair user out of the windscreen and side windows is greatly increased, making every journey more enjoyable. More headroom is also generated; creating a comfortable, spacious cabin ideal for taller wheelchair users. The centre of gravity for the wheelchair user is also reduced, which considerably reduces the sensation of body roll as the vehicle leans from side to side. Ensuring that the floor is level offers greater comfort for the wheelchair user, with a naturally ergonomic seating position. Enabling the wheelchair user to travel centrally within the vehicle also ensures a more comfortable ride, as fewer bumps and undulations in the road surface are felt when positioned further forward in the vehicle.

INCLUSION
The Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is designed with families in mind. The lowered floor and central wheelchair position enables the wheelchair user to travel inclusively, as part of the family group. We also aim to provide an equal head-height for ablebodied and wheelchair seated passengers alike; this enables easier conversation and promotes the feeling of inclusivity and wellbeing for the wheelchair user.

SAFETY
Safety for all means peace of mind; for driver and passengers alike. The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the pinnacle of passenger safety, with innovative driver assistance and passive safety systems safeguarding all occupants. The Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is also designed with passenger safety in mind; the Power Assisted Wheelchair Restraint System is dynamically tested, whilst the standard ‘STORQ’ Self-Tensioning Restraint System automatically applies tension to the rear wheelchair restraints; ensuring a safe and stable ride for the wheelchair user.

Conversion


Level Floor

Low, Flat, Level Lowered Floor

A sloping floor, sitting too high or far back in the vehicle can not only be isolating, but also an uncomfortable ride for the wheelchair user. The low, level floor of a Brotherwood® conversion offers a stable, comfortable, natural seating position, for better visibility, inclusion and ride quality.

Brotherwood headroom

Spacious Headroom

Our lowered floor allows a huge headroom inside the Klastar. As a result the wheelchair user enjoys excellent visibility out of the large windows. Sitting lower in the vehicle also lowers the wheelchair user's centre of gravity, reducing the feeling of body roll for a better ride.

Brotherwood Seats

Full Size Second-Row Seats

The second row seats are full size for optimal passenger comfort, yet still offer 26" of space in between thanks to our innovative Brotherwood configuration. This means the wheelchair user can travel between the 2 rear seats inclusively.

STORQ System

STORQ System

STORQ automatically applies extra tension to the wheelchair restraints – ideal for those with limited grip or dexterity who might struggle with traditional buckles. By ensuring the rear restraints are properly tensioned, the wheelchair user enjoys a safer, more stable ride.

Storq System

Hook-i PAWRS

The Hook-i PAWRS is a remote-controlled, powered front restraint system, to assist loading a wheelchair and passenger. No pushing required, simply attach the restraints and press the remote control for effortless loading of combined wheelchair and passenger weights up to 250kg.  

Brotherwood powered ramp

Luxury and convenience go hand in hand. In addition to powered opening of the sliding doors and tailgate, the access ramp is fully automated, deploying and retracting via remote control.
