Introducing the Cabin Car
02 May 2017
We are delighted to announce that we are now suppliers for the new Cabin Car - the ultimate mobility vehicle for those transitioning from a car. Fully enclosed from the elements, it boasts luxury car-like features such as a heater, windscreen wiper and reversing camera to give you a driving experience closer to that of a car than a traditional mobility scooter.
For those who have had to give up their car, driving a mobility scooter for the first time can be an alien experience. Exposed to the wind, rain and cold (or scorching heat for a couple of days in August), they can leave you feeling exposed, while traditional canopies that attempt to combat this come with a whole host of their own pitfalls.
The Cabin Car has been custom built by innovative UK manufacturer Scooterpac specifically for those looking to make this transition. It is the closest driving experience you can get to a car, with solid bodywork surrounding you, a heater/fan to keep you comfortable, a windscreen wiper to ensure visibility, and a rear-view mirror with parking camera to help you manoeuvre.
Twin USB sockets let you power a satnav while charging your phone, remote locking keeps your Cabin Car secure, while a cup holder lets you bring your tea or coffee along (Pimms not recommended).
While the Cabin Car does clock in at about three times the price of a traditional 8 mph scooter, it offers far more than one of those. It is a niche product primarily pitched at those who have just given up their car, and who thus may be in the position to afford it as a result. However, it is also proving popular amongst those who have made extensive use of a regular scooter, and who want to upgrade to a more comfortable model that can be driven in all weather.
Given how different the Cabin Car is from anything else on the market, it really needs to be tried out to understand just what it offers. If you’re interested, please give us a ring on 0800 025 8005 to speak to one of our product specialists.
