Honda's N BOX is currently the best selling hatchback in Japan. People in Japan absolutely love the boxy car for its utilitarian features. But there is something else that will now make the car all the more special, wheelchair support has been added to N BOX+ making it a part of Honda's "welfare vehicles", which provide special support to wheelchair bound people. It's definitely one of a kind and first hatchback with proper wheelchair support provided by the manufacturer, mostly 3rd party companies modify cars to make them wheelchair friendly.
Honda will exhibit the car later this week at "Barrier-Free 2013" – to be held at Intex Osaka, Japan. The exhibition is meant for companies to showcase their barrier-free equipments and products with special support for elderly and disabled. N BOX + has an aluminium ramp for the wheelchair, that can be neatly folded below the rear seats when not in use. The whole setup can also be used to transport a cycle as demonstrated on Honda's website.
