2011 - 2013

Vehicle Production Group 

Information about Vehicle Production Group 

Founded by Fred Drasner and David Schembri, the Vehicle Production Group (VPG) introduced an intriguing venture into the automotive industry with the MV-1 in 2011. This original model, designed primarily for accessibility, featured a unique selling point: it was the first vehicle purpose-built for wheelchair users. It boasted a robust design with a built-in ramp and was engineered to meet or exceed the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The concept embodied VPG’s commitment to innovation and inclusivity, serving a segment of the population often overlooked by mainstream automakers.

Despite the initial acclaim and a clear niche, VPG faced significant challenges. The company struggled financially, leading to its cessation of production in 2013. However, the MV-1’s legacy continues under new management by AM General, which resumed its production due to ongoing demand. This transition underscores the enduring impact and necessity of VPG’s original vision, proving that the MV-1 remains a vital solution for many, and highlighting the complex tapestry of success and difficulty in the auto industry’s pursuit of inclusivity.
