Why are wheelchair vans so expensive? 

The cost of wheelchair vans is higher due to the extensive modifications required to make them accessible for individuals with disabilities. These modifications include installing ramps or lifts, lowering the vehicle's floor to create more interior space, and adding specialized securing systems for wheelchairs. These modifications involve engineering, design, and high-quality materials, which contribute to the overall cost. Wheelchair vans also need to meet specific safety standards, such as reinforced floors and anchorage systems, which can further increase the cost. The relatively small market for wheelchair vans compared to non-modified vehicles also results in higher production costs and lower economies of scale, adding to the higher price tag.
