The UK’s First Electric Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle

Brotherwood Automobility, sildenafil teaming with Nissan, medicine has launched the Brotherwood Envy, site the UK’s first Fully Electric Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. Brotherwood, who are based in Dorset, will be bringing the vehicle up to Liverpool between 7 – 14 July to give both potential users and providers the opportunity to see the benefits for themselves.

Taxi One Solutions is a locally based company already providing an extensive wheelchair friendly taxi service on Merseyside. Directors of Taxi One Solutions, Tony Mullane and Richard Gawith are delighted to welcome Brotherwood to Liverpool and are hoping to demonstrate the vehicle’s potential to operators and care providers as well as the users themselves. Commenting on the visit, Tony said:

“The Brotherwood Envy conversion could significantly improve the journey experience for wheelchair users as well as reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality.

As a local business, providing services to a range of users including those in wheelchairs, we welcome the opportunity to not only see the benefits for ourselves, but also to give our clients the opportunity to feedback.

Electric vehicles also have the advantage of offering significant savings in running costs, with fuel costs reduced to as little as 2p per mile which can only be positive news for both the operator and the customer.”

The Brotherhood Envy will be based on the garage forecourt of George Gawith Taxis at 63/67 Kensington in Liverpool, from 7 July for one week to allow the public to view the vehicle. For more information contact Tony Mullane: aj_taxis@icloud.com
