An update from the WHILL website:
As of March 1, 2019, the Model M has been discontinued. We’re still here to provide support, maintenance and repairs for your Model M. For support inquiries, please reach out to our Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (844) 699-4455
The Model A has similar features to Model M, including seat slide, three speeds, all-wheel drive, and the ability to handle rough terrain with ease. Additionally, Model A has a companion iPhone app that enables users to drive the device remotely, check battery range and mileage, lock the device, and adjust speed settings. To experience the Model A firsthand visit WeDrive or email email@example.com to book your test drive.
I am so happy that I was able to be a part of the WHILL ambassador program. WHILL gave me the opportunity to test drive the Model M. I was able to enjoy so much in my hometown from local parks to the movie theater. And even Walt Disney World! I never thought a personal electric vehicle could make such a difference. It truly was life changing!
The Model M is almost the same size as my manual wheelchair. Getting through doors and maneuvering through tight spaces was not been a problem. And the design is so unique.
In the short time I used the Model M, my confidence to take on everyday adventures skyrocketed. Now that we have taken it to Walt Disney World, I think I love the Model M even more. You can see what my experience was like using a power chair in the parks for the first time here.
I am also now the owner of a WHILL Model Ci. It’s a little different than the Model M but still awesome. It is not considered a medical device so no prescription is necessary to buy one. I hope to have some photos and more information up soon. In the meantime check out the links below for more information.
