GM's Mobility Advisor Allows Customers To Choose Ideal Vehicle



Detroit - General Motors has developed a new web based tool that will allow seniors, people with disabilities and caregivers to more easily identify the GM vehicle that can best handle specific mobility needs. The tool, GM Mobility Advisor, will let customers determine through a series of questions, which vehicle may be most appropriate.

This first iteration of the advisor furthers GM's commitment to customers with mobility needs, and coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October. GM Mobility Advisor guides customers through an Internet-based process to help them make more informed purchase decisions. This on-line application helps customers select vehicles by asking them a series of questions about their accessibility needs.

Based on their responses, the process educates the customer about potential GM vehicle solutions. "Quality information, placed in the hands of the consumer that addresses specific needs, will allow them to make good decisions to keep them more independent, mobile and active," said Mark Hogan, Group Vice President, Advanced Vehicle Development.

"The information provided will enable the customer to select a vehicle that better meets their needs and provides a valuable service for seniors, people with disabilities and caregivers," saidJim Kornas, Director of Mobility Product Development. Kornas sees the GM Mobility Advisor being particularly helpful to the emerging senior population, which is Internet savvy, and expected to be more than one-third of the U.S. population by 2020. There are also two million Americans who already use a wheelchair or scooter, a number expected to rise as the population ages.

"We really think the Mobility Advisor will enhance how our dealers can interact with seniors and people with disabilities," said Kornas. "Imagine how someone who has a disability or is a primary caregiver will feel when they can come into the dealership and have the dealer walk them through the best available options."

This information is available exclusively on the GM Mobility Advisor located at gmmobilityadvisor.com . Consumers can also access the website through GMMobility.com and learn more about GM Mobility and the mobility reimbursement program, which assists thousands each year in maintaining their independence

This online tool was developed in a combined effort between General Motors, iCan, AIC and XFI, to make important information available to those seeking mobility solutions.
