Planning on buying a Power Wheelchair, but it can only go over 2.5cm kerb. Is that enough?

I am planning to buy an electric wheelchair.  The one that seems to be the best for me (and seperates to go into the boot of a car) only has the ability to go over a kerb of 2.5cm (1"). This seems to be the least of all the chairs.  I was wondering if this is enough?  Do most places have dropped kerbs?  Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi there 

    I use power chair outside mine is fold away 

    Most places you can find drop kerbs but the problem is shop entrance with small kick board 

    Power chair are very heavy for someone to tip you back
