Fitting a mobility scooter into a 1 series

Just a query, I am considering a 1 series for my next mobility car.

With the dealerships closed in Wales I wonder if anyone in this forum could provide me with some dimensions?

With the group of 2 rear seats folded (leaving the smaller one remaining), what is the remaining width available?

I need a space of 90x41cm to slide in the main "frame" of the scooter.

This would allow me to transport my scooter, plus 2 "passengers".

Thanks in advance.

John.

Hi John,

I'll get some pics and measurements for you tomorrow.

Just heading out now

I assume the ask is can a frame the size you state

1) for through the opening
2) the store in the car seats down

Many thanks for this, I await your reply tomorrow.

FYI my scooter collapses into 4 parts:

Frame (biggest part)
Battery (small)
Seat
Rear wheel section

I have an X1 at the the moment, but I was wondering if a may downsize for my next vehicle.

Hi John.

Yes 90cm x 41cm profile would just fit.
It's so close I would advise you will need to check to satisfy yourself but my opinion is it's not a wasted to a dealers to see.

It's is tight. The opening is widest at the bottom and maybe 93/4 there at the wry top the boot with is sub 91 but of course you only need 41cm height profile which I think fits.

Would be snug but actually there's sometimes benefit to that S it prevents lots of love and roll of things in the back.

A Toutube channel worth checking I out might Auotfugel, the guys there get the ruler out and show you the boot dimensions etc.
