The GoodNewsNetwork had an interesting article about an intellectual-property attorney in Austin, Texas named Stacy Zoern. She uses a wheelchair and had an idea to help people like her become more independent. She designed and is now manufacturing an innovative electric car that provides easy access and drivability, without ever getting out of your chair.
Just push a remote button and the back of the Kenguru car lifts up, and its automatic ramp lowers for immediate entry. Then, just drive the tiny vehicle away while seated in your wheelchair.
The environmentally friendly car has a top speed of 35 mph and is designed for getting around on neighborhood or city streets. It is steered by a motorbike-style handlebar and has room for just the driver.
Kenguru has secured millions of dollars from investors and the company projects the cars will sell for around $25,000.
