b active auto icon bigLooking for a multifunctional wheelchair van that allows you to carry more than one passenger? With the conversion kit that B-style has developed especially for the Mercedes-Benz Vito, a conversion company can turn the Vito into a serious, proper wheelchair van. It is with good reason that B-style is the market leader when it comes to wheelchair transport conversion kits for the Mercedes-Benz Vito. As the inventor of the wheelchair accessible van in 1973, B-Style has consolidated all its knowledge and expertise and incorporated it into the B-Active to allow both able-bodied and wheelchair passengers to benefit for many years of convenience, high quality finish and comfort.

Perfect for everyone. Do you have a large family, which includes a wheelchair user? Then the B-Active Vito L3 offers a solution in terms of space and versatility, which makes it a very popular disability car, even for private use. There is plenty of space for all the passengers, and the wheelchair passenger enjoys considerably more room than in an average conversion van, which literally and figuratively expands their world. Entering the Vito 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.

Vito L3 wheelchair taxi

A tried and tested wheelchair taxi for the daily transport of a wheelchair passenger and others. That is the B-Active Mercedes-Benz Vito L3 in a nutshell, which makes it ideal for professional use. Both the vehicle and the wheelchair conversion are of high quality. Having performed numerous tensile and endurance tests, B-Style guarantees the durability of components. Besides carefree transport, the B-Active Vito 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!

No fewer than four rows of seats can be created in the longest version of the Vito. This allows you to transport a total of nine able-bodied passengers or six plus a wheelchair user. From the factory, you can choose between two seats or one seat and a bench. The second row is always the original bench, which seats three. 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. If you were keeping track, you will have counted ten seats, but the maximum occupancy is nevertheless nine people, due to legal regulations. This is why, with four rows, two separate seats are often ordered for the first row.

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, we 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 Vito 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 Vito.

What is a conversion kit?

Personalization Vito L3 wheelchair van

There are several possibilities for personalizing your Mercedes-Benz Vito 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 Vito 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 Vito 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.

The B-Active conversion kit is only supplied for the rear wheel drive Vitos and for the L2 and L3 lengths. The short version of the Vito, the L1, is not suitable for wheelchair conversion. The Vito 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 Vito 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.
