MV-1 launches 'Cash for Conversion Clunkers' program

Posted on February 28, 2012

The Vehicle Production Group LLC (VPG) announced its forthcoming "Cash for Conversion Clunkers" incentive program, which will provide consumers a $3,500 allowance towards the purchase of a new MV-1, and up to $5,500 each toward the purchase of five or more MV-1 vehicles by fleet operators.

Made in Mishawaka, Ind., the MV-1 is the only vehicle built from the ground up as a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. It features a fully-deployable side ramp, can accommodate up to six occupants — including wheelchairs and motorized scooters — and offers an environmentally-friendly compressed natural gas engine.

The Cash for Conversion Clunkers program begins on March 1, 2012 and ends on May 31, 2012 and will be in effect at all VPG dealerships nationwide.

The MV-1 also meets or exceeds vehicle guidelines under the Americans with Disabilities Act and does not require an exemption under the Federal Transit Administration's Buy America program.
