Highlights

Brotherwood converted the very first electric Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle in 2015, with the launch of the Nissan ‘Envy’ eNV-200 WAV. The Envy was the first electric WAV to gain full European Whole Vehicle Type approval, PAS:2012 approval and also the first electric WAV on the Motability scheme.

With this experience we know all of the challenges involved with the conversion of electric vehicles for wheelchair users. Our new electric WAV, the elektron builds upon our experience to deliver more space and comfort for the wheelchair user.

A Quiet Space

LONG, FLAT, LEVEL LOWERED FLOOR

The new Brotherwood elektron electric WAV conversion maximises the potential space within the Vivaro e-Life to provide a flat, level lowered floor of 64½” / 164cm in length. Much longer than previous electric WAVs, the elektron provides increased space, ride comfort and visibility for the wheelchair user.

MINIMAL NOISE

The whisper quiet electric drivetrain make travelling in the Brotherwood electron quiet and relaxing. Making for easier conversation and peaceful, tranquil journeys.

electric WAV ramp

Effortless Access

COUNTERBALANCED RAMP

Electric Vehicles have never been more accessible. Our rear wheelchair ramp is counterbalanced, making it light enough to lift with a single finger. The access ramp is only 107cm long, tucking neatly under the rear tailgate for shelter from the elements when loading. The shallow angle and high-traction surface make loading and unloading wheelchair and passenger safe, fast and convenient.

PAWRS DEVICE

The Hook-i PAWRS combined winch and restraint system makes loading even easier – providing power assistance at the push of a button, for effortless access even for large or heavy wheelchairs.

STORQ SYSTEM

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

Easy For All

POP-OUT SIDE STEP

Access is made easy for everyone with the Brotherwood elektron. Rear seat passengers get in and out easily and safely with the pop-out side step, which cleverly deploys automatically when the electric rear sliding doors are opened. A useful grab handle makes things even easier for those with limited mobility.

Optional Air Suspension

VB-FULLAIR SYSTEM

Exclusive to Brotherwood®, the optional VB-FullAir air suspension system replaces the traditional rear spring setup with a full air suspension system that filters out unevenness in the road surface, thereby increasing ride comfort.

SYSTEM FEATURES

The VB-FullAir system is also self-levelling, ensuring a consistent ride height and floor level at any load weight or number of passengers. The air suspension system can be lowered for even easier loading with a ramp angle of just 9º.

Features

Vivaro Battery

Integrated Battery


All-electric Vivaro-e Life’s fully-electric, zero-emission powertrain comes from a powerful 50kWh lithium-ion battery providing up to a 143 mile1 range.

High energy density cells, advanced heat management and balanced chassis integration mean a long operational life, impressive range and a low centre of gravity for a stable ride.

Vivaro Noise

Noise Free


The 100% electric battery and oh-so-quiet powertrain of All-electric Vivaro-e Life delivers a relaxing and extremely smooth ride. Everyone can sit back in the luxurious cabin that makes All-electric Vivaro-e Life a peaceful oasis on the road.

Vivaro Brake Regen

Regenerative Braking


As soon as you lift your foot off the accelerator, the regenerative braking system recaptures kinetic energy whilst braking and converts that power into even more range.

In its highest setting (B-Mode), most short journeys can be driven without use of traditional brakes, reducing wear and associated maintenance costs.

Quick & Easy Charging


All-electric Vivaro-e Life’s fast charging won’t keep you waiting. Its high energy density 50kWh battery needs just 30 minutes to charge 80% of optimum range using any 100kW public charger^.

Onboard and home-base wallbox charging conveniently provides maximum range overnight so you’re good to go the next day. All-electric Vivaro-e Life is the ideal clean, easy and cost-effective vehicle.

Monitoring & e-Info


All-electric Vivaro-e Life’s unique e-INFO instrument panel gives you an uncluttered, intuitive graphic view of energy consumption, range and charging in real-time, so you can plan your journeys with confidence and accuracy.

All-electric Vivaro-e Life’s vehicle data monitoring uses sophisticated sensors and onboard systems to provide a detailed overview of each journey. It shows range, route conditions, and energy costs, so you can drive as efficiently as possible.

Electric Pays Off


Forget about soaring fuel prices, congestion charges, and increasing vehicle taxes. All-electric Vivaro-e Life’s electric powertrain delivers low ownership costs, made even better by government purchase grants and incentives.

electric WAV lowered floor

Low, Flat, Level Floor


Wheelchair passengers located on a sloping floor or too high in the vehicle can feel not only isolated, but ca also lead to an uncomfortable ride. The low, level floor that is the hallmark of a Brotherwood® conversion offers a stable, comfortable and natural seating position, for improved visibility and exceptional ride quality.

Air Suspension


Exclusive to Brotherwood®, the optional VB-FullAir air suspension system replaces the traditional rear spring setup with a full air suspension system that filters out unevenness in the road surface, thereby increasing ride comfort. Self-levelling, ensuring a consistent ride height and floor level at any load weight or number of passengers.

Vivaro electric step

Electric Side Step


Access is made easy for everyone with the Brotherwood elektron. Rear seat passengers get in and out easily and safely with the pop-out side step, which cleverly deploys automatically when the electric rear sliding doors are opened. A useful grab handle makes things even easier for those with limited mobility.

STORQ System


The optional folding ramp (standard Fitment on Tekna Rapid Plus models) fold flat when not in use to create a practical area for luggage when no wheelchair user is on board. The ramp can then unfold with the push of a button making it ready to deploy.

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.

Counterbalanced Ramp


Our custom-built, lightweight ramp is counterbalanced, so that it can be lifted with minimal effort by foot or hand. The angle is shallow to enable easy loading , while long life fittings ensure minimal maintenance and reliable performance for years to come. Finished with a high-traction surface that makes access easy for manual or power chairs.
