Hundreds of wheelchair users and their families, carers, and Occupational Therapists were amongst the VIPs who attended the reveal of Brotherwood’s latest model; the “Klastar”, a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) conversion of the luxurious Mercedes-Benz V-Class. Offering a unique full-length, flat, level lowered floor with 57” internal headroom, self-tensioning restraint system, plus powered tailgate and access ramp, guests were wowed by the quality and refinement of the new Brotherwood conversion which promises to deliver best-in-class comfort and inclusion for the wheelchair user to sit centrally within the vehicle, with up to 6 other passengers including the driver.

With expert assistance on hand from the Brotherwood team, guests were free to compare the UK’s leading range of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles together in one place, and even take each of the models for an extensive test drive.
