The first ever electrically powered vehicle designed especially for wheelchair users will become available in the UK soon.

The Kenguru Car

  • Environmentally friendly – completely GREEN car delivering long awaited mobility solution for wheelchair users
  • Driven directly from a wheelchair – access is via the rear-opening tailgate and steering is by motorbike style handlebar  (joystick option will be available in time)
    Your own wheelchair is secured within the car by an interlocking device
  • The current design allows parking rear end to the pavement for easy access and it is an ideal solution to drivers who only undertake journeys to local shops and services
  • Because of its weight the Kenguru is classified as a scooter and therefore only a scooter driver’s licence is required to drive Kenguru

For wheelchair users who would like to get about town without assistance, this could be exactly what you are looking for. You enter the Kenguru on an automatically lowering ramp, which comes down as the back door opens at the press of the key.

Wheel in and you’ll find a motorcycle type handlebar controls in front of you...

Put the key in the ignition switch and the back door shuts lifting the ramp at the same time. The Kenguru will not start until the wheelchair is in a correct locking position and the door has been fully closed – the security considerations have been fully thought out and implemented with your safety in mind as a priority.
What could be simpler?
