The PARAVAN VW Caddy V side entry
A classic with a new twist
The first of its kind with a side ramp

A wheelchair accessible VW Caddy V with side entry

Worldwide unique: The classic VW Caddy V Maxi now rethought by PARAVAN

The exceptional PARAVAN conversion of the VW Caddy V Maxi with side ramp and lowered floor is the ideal choice for drivers or passengers in wheelchairs. The optional air suspension enables a flat entry angle and easy entry via the side ramp right up to behind the steering wheel. Thanks to the lowered floor, the interior is barrier-free and has plenty of headroom - a docking station (optional) ensures a secure connection between the electric wheelchair and the vehicle. Various driving and steering aids can be installed in the PARAVAN Caddy V conversion - from manual controls to the complete Space Drive system, with which the accelerator, brakes and steering can be operated via a joystick, for example.

The highlights at a glance

Side entry

The outstanding feature of our innovative barrier-free conversion for the Caddy V Maxi is the newly developed side ramp system. This enables the boot to be retained and allows convenient access to the driver or passenger side for wheelchair users.


It folds!

The new PARAVAN ramp for the Caddy V Maxi folds down mechanically or fully electrically and provides quick access from the side.


Everything under control

Numerous driving, steering and operating aids from PARAVAN are available for customisation. This gives you full control of your Caddy in every situation.


Plenty of space

Thanks to the side entry concept of the new PARAVAN Caddy V Maxi, the interior retains two full-size rear seats (7-seater basis). This means that nothing stands in the way of a family trip and everyday practicality remains fully intact.

The PARAVAN VW Caddy V with side access - innovative and wheelchair accessible

The flexible seating concept of the Paravan Caddy V with side entry, which is tailored to the needs of people with disabilities, allows numerous customisation options for up to two people in an active wheelchair or one person in a power wheelchair. In addition, the 7-seater version of the PARAVAN VW Caddy V with side access offers two fully-fledged seats on the rear bench seat.
