Before Wednesday, the only wheelchair-accessible vehicles available to the
public were aftermarket conversions that generally came with structural
modifications and a price tag ranging from $50,000 to $80,000.

Now, a startup company called the Vehicle Production Group (VPG) has released
the first vehicle specifically assembled to accommodate people in
wheelchairs, with an MSRP of $39,950.

The vehicle is called the MV-1, which stands for Mobility Vehicle 1, and it
was built for the disabled community.
