The Kenguru Cruiser is aimed primarily at disabled drivers. The tiny car opens at the back, allowing a wheelchair bound driver to roll right in and have clean access to the hand-operated controls. Two 4-kW AC motors drive the back wheels, propelling the car to 45 kilometers an hour (around 30 miles per hour) over a distance of 70 km (43 miles). As the picture shows, at 212.5cm (84 inches) long, the vehicle is small enough to make an unexpected appearance inside a rail car.
The Kenguru Cruiser is a product of Hungarian company Rehab Ltd., but the picture above shows the tiny vehicle in Oslo, Norway. Plans are underway to bring the car to the U.S. at a price around $14,000. The Cruiser would be considered a NEV in the United States, and would be legal in many residential areas. Would it be legal in a subway? There's only one way to find out.
