b active auto icon bigWant to transport multiple passengers plus a wheelchair passenger in style? You can, with the luxury version of the Mercedes-Benz passenger van, the V-Class, in combination with the B-Active wheelchair conversion kit. The V-Class can be seen as the Vito's big brother, and its interior has the look and feel of a passenger car rather than a van. The B-Style conversion kit fits this style perfectly, thanks to its high-quality finish, which makes the combination a high-end wheelchair accessible vehicle. The B-Active Mercedes-Benz V-Class L3 excels in flexibility, space and ease of use, making it one of the most comfortable wheelchair cars.

A wheelchair does not have to be a limitation for your transportation, because with the V-Class disability car you enjoy a feeling of luxury together with your entire family. There is plenty of space for all the passengers, and the wheelchair passenger enjoys considerably more room than in an average conversion van. Entering the V-Class L3 is very easy due to the high roof and the ramp with a gentle incline of just 11 degrees. With the optional gas spring, the wheelchair ramp can be operated with even less effort, so the wheelchair accessible van is also perfect for use by the elderly.

Looking for a high-end wheelchair taxi for the daily transport of a wheelchair passenger and others in class? Then you have found it in the B-Active Mercedes-Benz V-Class L3, which is perfect for professional use. Both the vehicle and the wheelchair conversion are of unparalleled quality. Having performed numerous tensile and endurance tests, B-Style guarantees the durability of components.

Besides carefree transport, the B-Active V-Class is also very easy to use. For example, the belts for securing the wheelchair can be attached while the wheelchair is still at the bottom of the ramp. These belts can only retract, so the wheelchair passenger cannot roll backwards on the ramp. That's safety and peace of mind!

V-Klasse Configurations

Configurations

No fewer than four rows of seats can be created in the longest version of the V-Class. This allows you to transport a maximum of nine able-bodied passengers or five plus a wheelchair user. The first row features two comfortable seats, and for the second row you have a factory option of either two separate seats or a bench seat for three. The first two rows of seats remain original Mercedes-Benz. The third and fourth row have optional folding seats, one on each side, for a total of four. These seats can only be used when there is no wheelchair passenger.

Conversion kit

B-style, inventor of the wheelchair van, sells conversion components for wheelchair use as a complete kit to professional conversion companies. Because B-style has, itself, been a conversion company for 44 years, they know exactly what is needed to efficiently build a handicap accessible van, and that knowledge has been put to good use in the development of the conversion kit for the V-Class L3. Among other things, this results in a very short installation time, without any welding. The quality delivered by B-style, and the resulting quick installation time, makes the cost price of the finished product very attractive. After all, fewer labour hours are required for conversion of the V-Class.

Personalization V-Class L3 wheelchair car

There are several possibilities for personalizing your Mercedes-Benz V-Class L3 wheelchair van. If the conditions are such that you need more ground clearance, a specially developed suspension set is available from VB. For the interior, you can opt for high quality, wear-resistant vinyl on the floor of the lowered floor area, and the walls can be fitted with an aluminium strip or made-to-measure ABS plastic caps. 

The wheelchair area can be illuminated with a LED strip, and the light switches on when the door is opened. To make the ramp as light as possible in operation, it can be fitted with a gas spring. As mentioned previously, the third and fourth rows can be fitted with two folding seats each, as an option; these can be used when there is no wheelchair passenger. One of the ramp options is what is called the ‘folding tip’. The end folds back for better visibility to the rear through the rear-view mirror. This also extends the ramp, which makes entry even easier for the wheelchair passenger.

To make a Mercedes-Benz V-Class L3 suitable for use as a wheelchair vehicle a section is cut out of the floor. B-style supplies a template for this, to ensure the cut-out is exactly the right size. The lowered floor section then fits perfectly in the V-Class L3 and provides a lower entry and more space for the wheelchair passenger. Everything needed to perform the conversion is included, such as a new fuel tank, the wheelchair ramp, safety belts and all the necessary fasteners.

Vehicle requirements

The B-Active conversion kit is only supplied for the rear wheel drive V-Classes and for the L2 and L3 lengths. The short version of the V-Class, the L1, is not suitable for wheelchair conversion. The V-Class must also have a rear hatch and no rear doors.

Paperwork handled by B-style

All the official documentation required for conversion of a Mercedes-Benz V-Class L3 to a WAV (wheelchair accessible vehicle) is provided by B-style. This includes the European Type Approval for the complete model range, as well as a second-phase Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for each specific model. The advantage of the latter is that the conversion company does not have to have each individual vehicle approved prior to registration. And that means huge time-savings.
