Toyota Mobility Sienna Minivan

The Toyota Sienna is known for its reliability and comfort, and it’s one of the most popular minivans on the market today. Because of this, VMI has taken the Sienna and added its VMI Northstar conversion to create one of the most exciting new lowered floor minivans around. This Toyota wheelchair van comes with lots of extra touches for your convenience and comfort, and it drives smoothly.

This solution is for persons with a severe disability, who are unable to get out of their wheelchair, and who wish to drive or ride in a vehicle while seated in their chair .

To allow sufficient headroom for people in a wheelchair, Sienna minivans go through an extensive conversion process which involves lowering the floor 11" – 12" to provide a 56" high door opening/interior height, and adding a ramp on the right side or in the rear of the minivan. With side entry conversions, the second row of seats is eliminated to provide room for wheelchair maneuvering and either one of the front seats can be removed to accommodate the wheelchair user
With rear entry conversions, the floor is lowered up the center of the vehicle to accommodate the transport of persons in a wheelchair. Toyota's Mobility Partner, BraunAbility is the world's largest converter of wheelchair accessible minivans, and offers Wheelchair Accessible Converted Sienna Ramp vans.

The conversion of a minivan for wheelchair access involves an extensive remanufacture of the vehicle, including the removal of the original vehicle floor and replacement with a lowered floor to increase headroom. In addition, a ramp for wheelchair access is added. This process requires the modification of several vehicle systems, including the relocation of the fuel tank and the exhaust, along with the elimination of most sound deadening materials. As a result, customers should not expect minivans converted for wheelchair access to have the same ground clearance or road noise suppression capability as an unmodified vehicle. Sienna
