The Mobility body is adapted for the PROACE CITY model in the passenger version of the Verso. As part of it, the floor of the rear of the car was lowered, which made it possible to obtain a compartment with a height of 142 cm, in which a passenger sitting in a wheelchair can be comfortably transported. It also facilitates the introduction of a wheelchair user into the car on an aluminum frame that unfolds in full length and folds in half using electric drives. The ramp is hinged, making it very easy to unfold. This decision required a redesign of the rear bumper, the middle part of which is attached to the raised tailgate.

PROACE CITY Mobility has factory front and second row seats. The passenger compartment takes the place of the third row of seats and the luggage compartment. Toyota equipped it with additional LED lighting. Driving safety is ensured by the four-point seat belts of the wheelchair and the three-point seat belts for the passenger sitting in it.
