Is a Power Wheelchair Conversion Not Necessary?

The Northstar E wheelchair-accessible minivan is the only caregiver-focused conversion to offer front-seat wheelchair access and an in-floor, slide-out ramp. With an uncluttered interior, obstruction-free doorway and optional mid-row seats, the Northstar E offers practicality, ease of use and flexibility at an affordable price. The Northstar E is VMI’s most affordable wheelchair van and the first VMI vehicle tailored specifically to the needs of wheelchair users with caregivers. It is the only caregiver vehicle to offer front-seat wheelchair access, a manual in-floor ramp that requires no bending or lifting, and seating for up to seven passengers.

Mid Row Seating

Single and double flip-up mid-row seats match OEM interior and provide multiple seating options.

Removable Front Seats

Easy-to-remove front seats create multiple seating options for greater independence and flexibility.  The Dodge Northstar E allows for multiple mobility devices to be on the move at the same time. 

A Quieter Ride

Engineered to minimize interior noise with extensive use of sound-deadening materials.

Corrosion Resistant Floor

This Dodge Northstar E conversion floors are E-coated for optimal rust and corrosion prevention.

Headroom

Featuring a 11-inch dropped floor provides ample headroom throughout the vehicle. Usable door opening height reaching 55'' makes this suitable for all but the tallest wheelchair users.
