SOUTH BEND, IN -- July 16, 2014: Mobility Ventures, an AM General company, is breaking new barriers with the launch of the MV-1 LX, the first luxury vehicle in the United States designed and built exclusively for people with disabilities.

The MV-1 LX has broad appeal for both individual consumers as well as the taxicab and limousine transportation industries. With plush leather seats, wood grain trim and a full digital navigation package, the LX is built for customers seeking an upgraded experience beyond the advanced features already built into the MV-1 line. The MV-1 LX offers improved features, which provide complete independence and easy and safe accessibility for its users.

The MV-1 line of vehicles are the only American-made vehicles "purpose-built" for people with disabilities, specifically designed from the ground up to meet or exceed passenger needs and the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Under the hood, the MV-1 LX brings significant strength with its 4.6 liter V8 Ford engine, a powertrain that has been the bedrock of performance and reliability across private and commercial vehicle platforms. MV-1 may also be ordered with a factory installed Compressed Natural Gas fuel option.

"This is a distinctive, well-appointed luxury car that we're exceptionally proud to bring to the market," said Rick Smith, President of Mobility Ventures. "The MV-1 fills a significant void in consumer, government and transportation fleet markets while providing unsurpassed accessibility, safety and comfort for its passengers."

Built at AM General's world-class Commercial Assembly Plant in Mishawaka, Ind., the MV-1 is universally designed, allowing people of all abilities equal access to a quality, safe and inclusive transportation option. The MV-1 meets all applicable safety standards in the U.S. and Canada for crash-worthiness test as required by both the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS) without exceptions or exemptions.

The MV-1 is "best in class" for safety, more durable and cost-effective to own and operate than a traditional converted van or bus. Because the vehicle was purpose-built with the comfort and accessibility desired by customers with disabilities, it was also constructed with built-in key safety features that avoid the hazards inherent with after-market conversions.

To purchase the new MV-1 LX or any other MV-1 vehicle model, please contact an authorized MV-1 dealer in your area which can easily be found on our newly revamped website at www.mv-1.us The new site also includes useful tabs on vehicle specifications, downloadable brochures and vehicle photos.
