Al Futtaim Trading Enterprises Introduces Customized Honda Odyssey For People Of Determination In UAE
Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, the exclusive distributor of Honda vehicles in the UAE, has launched a customized version of its popular family car, the Odyssey Touring, which has been fitted with a specially adapted and electronically operated seat, making access to the vehicle easier for those who require wheelchair access.
For ease of access, the Turny Orbit seat, including armrests and foot support, moves seamlessly to the outside of the Odyssey through the side electric sliding door, lowering itself to the required height for the passenger to comfortably embark. Once the passenger is safely strapped in, the seat can then be moved back inside the vehicle. The entire process is made possible by means of a hand-held remote-control panel. The chair is fitted to the middle row of the Odyssey with further adaptations available for the front passenger seat and even for the driver’s seat.
Rhett Maxwell, Honda UAE’s General Manager at Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, said, “The Honda Odyssey has always been recognized as class-leading, versatile and practical people mover and we are proud to be taking this to the next level with this unique offering g. Al-Futtaim prides itself on its customer-centric approach and we are committed to finding new ways to get closer to our customers to be able to deliver on our brand promise of enriching every day. Our aim with this initiative is to make life easier for families to transport infirm and wheelchair-bound relatives and thereby helping them to get out more whilst improving their quality of life.”
The vehicle has been customized in conjunction with Al-Futtaim Auto Centers Special Vehicle Division (SVD) and will be available to customers starting from AED 228,199.
