Toyota Makes Cars for the Disabled and Elderly

From being environment-friendly, [b]Toyota[/b] goes handicap-friendly.

Last December 3, 2005, Toyota showed to the public its production line for the [b]Aichi Prefecture[/b].

The concept of producing this car emanated from Toyota’s idea to make affordable and low-cost cars. Instead of producing less equipped vehicles to cut production costs, Toyota designed it for the old ones and the disabled so that the cars won’t appear spartan or so plain.

Despite the compact size, the Toyota Ractis offers great interior space for four occupants, including the driver and the passengers. It rides pretty well, both in the city and the highway. Everything inside is designed for convenience and for great comfort, giving you a seamlessly worry-free ride.

With the sporty and modern styling of this compact, you can’t tell it’s aimed for the elderly and is priced so low. The front end of the car features a contoured triangular Toyota hood and front Toyota grille merged into the wide Toyota bumper. A confident and stable ride is manifested by Toyota Ractis’ long wheel bases, wide track 16-inch Toyota wheels and extended wheel arches.

Powering the Ractis is a 1.3-liter or 1.5-liter engine with VVT-i (Variable Value Timing-intelligent), which boasts to be fuel efficient and high-performing. With the available Super CVT-i (Continuously Variable Transmission-intelligent), fuel economy and efficiency is enhanced at the same time, a smooth ride is guaranteed.

Models designed for disabled and elderly are called the Welcab. This car has broad range of applications and features numerous specifications that make the most of the base car's features. With its performance, excellent functionality and styling, [b]Toyota Ractics Welcab[/b] is indeed one of Toyota’s notable vehicles.

However, these cars are only available in the Japanese market. So for those of you who are eying on this car, keep your fingers crossed for now. Let’s hope Toyota would soon market this remarkable compact in the US.

For the meantime, you might want to improve your Toyota car’s styling, performance and comfort features.
