One start up, Community Cars, is looking to change that via the Kenguru, a low speed EV “purpose built for people in wheelchairs.”
The Kenguru, which is currently seeking funding on crowd source financing platform RocketHub to help finish designing it, is unlike any other electric car we’ve covered for the most part. The CEO of Community Cars, Stacy Zoern, suffers from spinal muscular atrophy and has never walked. She did eventually learn how to drive, and came across the Kenguru on the Internet. She raised money to bring the company behind it from Hungary to the US, and is now looking to go the distance to bring it to market.
