Main Digest

Built from a Peugeot Bipper Tepee light van, the Impulse allows manual and powered wheelchair users easy access and the option of driving the vehicle from a wheelchair. With the benefit of a remotely controlled-automatic tailgate and ramp, the Impulse offers disabled drivers true independence.

The completely flat floors and secure floor-locking stations of the Impulse allow wheelchair users a number of different options for travel. With easily-removable driver and passenger seats, wheelchairs can be secured up-front as passenger, driver, or both: the Impulse has sufficient space to accommodate two wheelchair occupants side-by-side. In addition, there is the option of internal transfer from a wheelchair to the driver's seat for wheelchair users who wish to drive from a standard driver's seat - much safer and easier that traditional external transfers.

Both the automatic tailgate and wheelchair ramp can be operated remotely through the Impulse key fob, allowing the ramp and tailgate to be lowered from within the home before travel. In addition, there are no gear controls or hand brake in the central space to limit room. Gears and the handbrake for the automatic Impulse are replaced with push button controls for ease of use.

The Peugeot Impulse is a compact wheelchair accessible vehicle that can comfortably accommodate two wheelchair users up-front, yet remains easy to drive and park. The Impulse wheelchair ramp is shorter than those of traditional disability cars; less room is needed at the rear of the vehicle to lower the ramp, meaning smaller parking spaces are accessible. With combined fuel consumption of 65.6 MPG, the Impulse is an economical everyday vehicle. The Peugeot Impulse is fully accredited to the UK Motability Scheme
