The Pride Mobility Jazzy Elite ES Portable is a sturdy electric wheelchair weighing 147.6 pounds (67 kilograms) with battery. Due to it's weight and the Active-Trac® Suspension, it can support passengers weighing up to 300 pounds (136.1 kilograms). Even though it disassembles, you may not need to purchase and install a lift on your car if you are going to be transporting it long distances. However, some reviews online have suggested that disassembling and reassembling it can be frustrating for users. In terms of turning radius, expect that you may be able to maneuver through most places relatively well, as the Pride Mobility Jazzy Elite ES Portable boasts a 24.75 inches (62.9 centimeters) turn radius. This is the best feature that we were able to find on the Jazzy Elite Portable ES, even though in the scope of all electric wheelchairs, it is not the best. For the retail price of $5750 though, it may not be completely worth it, as there are other, more affordable electric wheelchairs on the market that are equipped with better features and specifications.
