Nissan has announced its new Mobility Assist program, designed to support the mobility needs of its physically disabled U.S. customers.

The Japanese automaker will offer up to a $1,000 reimbursement for those that who qualify for adaptive equipment installed on new Nissan vehicles in order to accommodate a physically disabled driver or passenger.

The program is valid for those that have adaptive equipment installed by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)-registered installer, and must be done within six months of purchase or lease from an authorized Nissan dealer. The following types of adaptive equipment have been pre-approved: hand controls, wheelchair/scooter lift, left foot accelerator, and turning automotive seating.

Requests for reimbursements must be made within 90 days of the equipment installation.

“Nissan Mobility Assist allows us to further broaden the appeal of an already diverse product lineup and truly live up to our corporate motto of ‘innovation and excitement for everyone,’” said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing. “By helping defray the costs of medically necessary upfits, we’re increasing the mobility of our customers nationwide.”
