People with physical disabilities are more often required to adapt their surroundings according to their needs, but the EQUAL Concept Car offers a much more convenient approach. Drivers with limited to no use of their legs may not have to install assistive mechanisms in existing vehicles, for this machine has been created around the wheelchair.

Dreamed up by Absolute Design, this contemporary commuter car is entered through the hatchback door with the help of a ramp. The user can position himself independently and his wheelchair serves as the driver's seat. The dashboard has been organized quite simply, yet it provides all of the buttons, dials, knobs and gear shifting equipment within an arm's easy reach. The EQUAL Concept Car would be one of the nimblest automobiles on the road. Stats for Accessible Subcompact Autos Trending: Older & Average
