Kenguru Cruiser is a car you could take on the subway

Sure, you car drive your car to the train station. If you're taking the auto train down the East Coast of the U.S. or into the Chunnel between France and the UK, you can even slip your vehicle into a specially designed train car. However, neither of those options quite matches up to being able to drive your car straight onto a subway. The Kenguru Cruiser fits that particular bill.

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.
