Kenguru: A Genius Car For Drivers On Wheelchairs

See the person, not the wheelchair.

So many developments are being made for those in wheelchairs, visit to see how wheelchair lifts are now a much better option than the traditional ramp, and if you travel to UK today, don’t be surprised to witness disabled people driving around the town thanks to the first-ever electrically powered vehicle designed specifically for wheelchair users.


Keep calm, it’s only a wheelchair!

Stacy Zoerm has been in a wheelchair for her whole life. After obtaining her law degree from The University of Texas, Stacy became increasingly frustrated by feeling confined to expensive city living. Relying on a wheelchair for mobility means she had to be close enough to work. And it’s somehow impossible!

Not giving up, Stacy began researching, and came across the Kenguru concept, a little electric wheelchair-friendly vehicle conceived by a man in Budapest but had fallen through funding. Seeing potential, Stacy convinced him to move his operations to Texas.

“Getting a startup off the ground is the most difficult thing you can do. There’s one obstacle after another, and so much personal financial risk. But every single day, I get emails from people who visit our website and say “This is going to change my life. Thank you.” That lightens my load. It’s a reminder of why I’m doing this,” said Stacy. and with her marketing skills, the Kenguru concept raised $4 million from investors, and soon to be rolling off factory lines.


kenguru-0The Kenguru car is a brilliant idea since it allows the person to drive it directly from a wheelchair. Access is via the rear-opening tailgate and steering is by motorbike-style handlebars. Because of its weight, the Kenguru is classified as a scooter, and therefore, only a scooter driver’s license is required to drive it. Max speed is 45 MPH, and you can travel 30 miles on a single charge.
