Manual Door And Wheelchair Ramp Operation

The Honda Pilot Northstar-E wheelchair accessible SUV features a patented, ultra-low, manual in-floor wheelchair ramp system with an astonishing 32-inch width that allows for safe entry and exit of much larger wheelchairs. The ramp easily and conveniently stows and deploys from underneath the floor, which creates additional interior space and maneuverability for the wheelchair user and his/her passengers by not having a ramp taking up room inside the cabin or blocking the doorway. The ramp is made from a high-strength aluminum alloy, and can support loads up to 800 lbs.

Removable Front Seating

The obstacle-free front seating on the Honda Pilot, wheelchair SUV allows for easy removal and the creation of multiple seating arrangements for the wheelchair user and his/her passengers. In fact, the space inside the Honda Pilot, wheelchair accessible SUV is large enough to accommodate two wheelchairs side-by-side if needed along with ambulatory passengers! 

Corrosion Resistant Flooring

All VMI, Northstar wheelchair vehicle conversions are built with flooring made from galvaneal steel that is also E-coated for optimal rust and corrosion prevention. 

Headroom And Lowered Floor

The floor from just behind the firewall to the third row seat in the VMI, Honda Pilot wheelchair SUV is lowered a maximum of 16 inches to create the industry’s largest available headroom of any handicap accessible SUV. This lowering of the floor also creates a usable door opening height of 55.5-inches, which makes the VMI, Honda Pilot, Northstar-E Access360 wheelchair accessible SUV a great fit for those who sit taller while seating in their wheelchair.

Towing Capacity

Yes! A wheelchair accessible vehicle that can tow! You asked for it and VMI has delivered… The VMI, Honda Pilot handicap SUV features a towing capacity of 3500 lbs. This large towing capacity further enhances the usage and capabilities of owning an SUV over a traditional minivan.
