Meet the Industry’s First

Toyota Sienna Hybrid Wheelchair Accessible Van
Available in All-Wheel Drive!

2021 brought about a lot of change in the mobility industry. Not only was the iconic Dodge Grand Caravan retired, but we were introduced to two firsts in our industry. 

One, the all-new Toyota Sienna Hybrid wheelchair-accessible van, was developed by BraunAbility, and VMI.

Second, VMI took it a step further and introduced the first-ever all-wheel-drive wheelchair van, an available option on the Toyota Sienna Hybrid.

These milestones are a significant addition to the mobility industry, especially for those environmentally conscious or those living in our northern states where an AWD drivetrain is most important.

In addition to being the first hybrid and AWD vehicle in the mobility industry, the Toyota Sienna hybrid has many other impressive improvements and firsts. Below are a few worth mentioning.

  • Up to 36 MPG on FWD models & up to 35 MPG on AWD models
  • Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – Includes many advanced safety features
  • Front & rear parking assist with automatic braking.
  • Road sign assist.
  • Pre-collision system with pedestrian detection.
  • Dynamic radar cruise.
  • Lane departure alert with steering assist, and much more.
  • Available factory towing package
  • Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay & Android audio compatibility
  • Four-zone climate control
  • Seven USB ports
  • Driver Easy-Speak – Enhances communication with rear passengers
  • 1500-watt power outlet

As we move further into the near future and more manufacturers introduce hybrids and fully electric vehicles to their portfolios, we fully expect more industry firsts heading our way. This landmark introduction by Toyota is only the beginning!

What do you think will be next? A fully electric SUV? How about a plugin, a fully electric Chrysler Pacifica? We will have to wait and see, but one thing is for sure, what we’ve grown to know as the norm is no longer valid. Times are changing rapidly, and new products will continue to be developed as long as we have industry partners like BraunAbility and VMI.
