Detroit, Mich., Jan. 2, 2012 - The North American International Auto Show Mobility Center, premiering with the 2012 edition of the NAIAS, will provide new transportation options and opportunities for those living with disabilities.
"Living with a disability doesn't have to mean the end of personal mobility," says NAIAS 2012 Chairman Bill Perkins. "Today there are so many more options for those who are physically challenged than there were just a few years ago. We're pleased to bring together a group of manufacturers and equipment providers that are committed to assisting those with special needs."
Located in Cobo Center's Michigan Hall, the NAIAS Mobility Center will feature a variety of vehicles, accessories, vehicle conversions, and adaptive devices that address special transportation needs, as well as innovations in mobility. In addition, vehicles that have been modified to accommodate disabled drivers, and accessories that allow standard vehicles to be adapted - all designed to help improve quality of life - will be on display.
The Mobility Center will be adjacent to the indoor Pure Michigan Ride & Drive Test Track, and include products from: AutoAbility-Michigan, Chrysler Mobility, Creative Mobility Group, Detroit Auto Salon Scooters, GoShichi Vehicles, Toyota Mobility, and Vehicle Production Group.
"Transportation is an indispensable part of life for all people," said Perkins. "It wasn't that long ago when being disabled meant the end of personal mobility. Those days are gone," said Perkins. "Today, our show is about satisfying the transportation needs of people, and we are pleased to offer this exhibit area that is completely focused on personal mobility."
