Is there a vehicle with a powered tailgate that will lift my electric buggy inside?

I am disabled. I use an electric buggy that my wife finds very hard to lift into our car. Do you know a model that has a 2-part powered tailgate that will be able to lift electrically my buggy to the same height as the boot?

Not a powered tailgate, but the Suzuki Grand Vitara has a side opening rear door and the lowest, lipless load floor of any 4WD SUV. The seats roll out of the way and it is available as an automatic. See:

The car now has no spare wheel on the rear door, making it lighter.
