Wheelchair-ready Kenguru EV deliveries are "imminent"

The Kenguru electric car is unlike any other EV, if for no other reason than it doesn't have a seat. That's because the Kenguru is designed to be driven by people in wheelchairs, and they bring their seats with them. With the Kenguru, you roll up, open the one door (the back hatch), then roll on down the road.

We learned about the struggles that Stacy Zoern, CEO of Community Cars, was having getting the Kenguru produced last month in this video. The good news is that the low-speed Kenguru (28 mile per hour top speed) is about to make its way into production. "Distribution in a number of European countries is imminent," Gizmodo reports. The car is hand-assembled in Pflugerville, TX by Community Cars. The Kenguru was originally designed by Rehab, Ltd in Hungary.

The Kenguru has a range of between 70 and 110 km (43-68 miles) and costs around $25,00 before governmental incentives. Because of the nature of this EV, qualified buyers can get both alternative powertrain and vocational rehabilitation incentives.
