Kenguru drive-from-wheelchair electric car offers a solution to mobility-related challenges

Who ever said that people on wheelchairs are forever doomed to face the perils of inaccessibility are wrong. Enter Kenguru, considered as the world’s first drive-from-wheelchair electric car. Although some will usually outfit existing cars with the accessibility for wheelchairs, it’s often expensive and doesn’t offer a complete solution. The Kenguru promises to change all that by allowing users to drive with their wheelchair on. As you can see above, the Kenguru has a single door located at the back of the vehicle for wheelchair access.

Users can open the rear door by using a remote control. The 350kg electric car is 2125 mm (83.6 in) long, 1620 mm (63.8 in) wide, and 1525 m (60 in) tall. Batteries are used to power two 2-kW motors located on the rear axle, delivering speeds of up to 45 km/h (28 mph). The Kenguru electric car has a range between 70  to 110 kilometers, which is quite impressive. Users will also love the handlebar that offers an almost motorcycle-like experience when driving. The Kenguru electric car will be available soon and is expected to be priced at $25,000. For more details, check out the official website.
