The First Electric Vehicle for Wheelchair Users

The First Electric Vehicle for Wheelchair Users

The Kenguru is the first ever electric vehicle with no seats, that allows drivers to control the car from their wheelchair.

The vehicle can accommodate one passenger seated in his or her wheelchair, they can simply open the back hatch, wheel their chairs inside and drive away. It can travel independently and conveniently up to 110 kilometers (60 miles) at the maximum speed of 45 km/h (25 mph).

The Kenguru is priced at US$25,000, but that this can be significantly reduced where electric vehicle or vocational rehabilitation incentives are available. Watch the video below to take a closer look.
