KENGURU, A Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) has been showcased all over the place and was at the NYC Abilities Expo. It is also making its presence at the Houston Abilities Expo this weekend, as well.
Looking towards US roll out!
“The Kenguru (pronounced “kangaroo”) can accommodate one passenger seated in his or her wheelchair for a range of up to 60 miles. To use the Kenguru, drivers simply open the back hatch, wheel their chairs inside and drive away.
“I have a disability called spinal muscular atrophy, which is a form of muscular dystrophy,” Zoern explains (Stacy Zoern, CEO & Founder). “So, I’ve actually never walked and have used a wheelchair all my life.”
“So, my entire adult life getting to the doctor has been a challenge, getting to the grocery store, running errands. Even just having a social life is hard, because my friends have to pick me up and take me everywhere,” she continues.”
The Kenguru is small but yet looks fun to drive with motorcycle type steering! Should make cruising around town, running errands and such, much more easier.
