Back in the days of the 727 I worked at the Boeing Company and had the opportunity to work with a man who had suffered a severe injury in a trampoline accident. The accident left him paralyzed except for limited use of his arms and hands and he got around in the first electric, joy stick controlled, wheel chair that I ever saw. (It may have been the first one because it was a one off built especially for him by his major professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at Washington State.) Although he managed quite well, was married with three children and traveled extensively he was dependent on others to take him where he wanted to go. How he would have loved this car.
“The Kenguru is about as far from a people carrier as its possible to get, being a small nimble electric vehicle, but one designed specifically for quick, easy access by, and driving from, a wheelchair. Its makers claim it is the first drive-from-wheelchair electric car.”
