BASE, the UK importer of MOBIpeople products from Portugal, has unveiled what it describes as a ‘new and improved’ PSVAR-specification Midi Explorer.

The first vehicle in this new configuration has been built for KB Coaches

The design, with the wheelchair lift between the axles, has allowed all of the luggage space in the rear boot to be retained. The vehicle has a maximum capacity of 35 seats plus driver and courier with a wheelchair lift fitted.

The first vehicle built to this new design, ordered by KB Coaches of Gloucestershire, can accommodate up to four wheelchairs.

BASE is also able to retro-fit earlier Midi Explorers to this revised specification.

Andy Francis of KB Coaches said: “The Midi Explorer is my 11th MOBIpeople since 2015; the quality of the product and the aftermarket support I receive from BASE is second to none. I just hope I have some work in the diary by the time it’s registered in September!”

Nick Dodgson, General Manager at BASE added: “We are always looking to improve the specifications that we are offering with MOBIpeople. With more customers looking to operate PSVAR-compliant vehicles in their fleets, we think this is a significant improvement in design that allows the vehicle to be operated to a PSVAR specification without any real compromise to the vehicle in its original use as a 35-seat midi coach.”

All MOBIpeople models are available to a PSVAR specification, with seating capacities ranging from 29 to 74. Further details are available from BASE on 01772 425355.
