The Mobility Ventures MV-1 is passenger van design specifically for wheelchair users. In addition to private use and taxi service, the MV-1 has been adopted by some transit agencies for paratransit use. It was launched in 2011 by Vehicle Production Group and manufactured by AM General.

The chassis allows for a six-inch ground clearance, and a wide door ahead of the rear wheels features a telescopic ramp to allow a wheelchair to board. Ample space allows for an easier turn towards the front of the vehicle or towards the rear which each have space for a wheelchair.
