TGA, the UK's leading mobility scooter specialist, is to launch the larger 4-wheel version of its pioneering Minimo, the new folding 4mph Maximo, at Naidex National 2015 (28-30th April, NEC, Stand B70).
For 30 years TGA has driven innovation in mobility and this latest launch once again provides a new concept for personal independence. The new Maximo promises to deliver TGA retailers with even higher levels of consumer interest than those associated with its smaller predecessor, the Minimo, which was launched at Naidex National 2013.
Introduction of the Minimo represented the beginning of a new family of compact, folding car boot scooter that provides greater levels of transportability and flexibility. Its optional lightweight lithium battery (only 2.65kgs) is a true groundbreaking development that can be lifted by a single finger and comes as standard with the Maximo.
The Maximo now builds on these outstanding features to provide a larger, 4-wheel version with an enhanced driving experience. With more range, features and comfort, the Maximo now combines all the benefits of a collapsible 4mph car boot scooter with a larger standard model - a new type of offering for retailers.
The TGA Maximo can be folded into a compact size with a single, one-handed operation and requires no parts to be dismantled for storage. Despite its wider and longer chassis, 580 x 1160mm respectively, the Maximo can be easily stored in the boot of a hatch back, estate car or 4x4 for wider owner freedom. The Maximo ride is one of the smoothest available through fully active, all-round suspension and pneumatic tyres. Its anti-tip castors also ensure safety and stability when tackling uneven surfaces and the Maximo has an impressive user weight capacity of 21 stone (133kg). The powerful 270w motor and high quality S-Drive controller provide exceptional performance with a range of up to 12.5 miles (20km). When charging is required, the battery can be easily removed by the user without the need to disconnect wiring.
Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director comments: "Once again, Naidex National will provide the perfect platform for us to launch another superb TGA innovation to the trade, healthcare professionals and consumers. The Minimo and now the Maximo, we believe are the first scooters to successfully deliver a true hybrid design with twice as many benefits to end users. Combining fold-ability with feature-richness is now a reality. We understand retailers need suppliers to be continually evolving their products to entice business into showrooms. We feel confident that the new TGA Maximo will do just that and are proud to be presenting this remarkable model at Naidex National."
The Maximo incorporates many additional features that elevate it above other competitor products in the 'car boot' class. From high visibility, low energy LED lights to a fully adjustable, folding seat, the Maximo combines an impressive range of characteristics - all engineered with a precision, quality finish. The TGA Maximo will be showcased on Stand B70 alongside the complete TGA range of scooters and wheelchair powerpacks.
