Kangaroo Series handicapped electric car ismall, electric-power auto specifically designed for wheelchair users.
This Kangaroo Series handicapped electric car ismall, electric-power auto specifically designed for wheelchair users. It provides a much more naneuverable and efficient mode of local transportantion.
The electric car's interior space has no front seat-just a space built to house the driver's own wheelchair so all he/she has to do is simply roll in through the extra large car doors and into position.
Vehiccles for people in wheelchairs are not awfully strange, but they are virtually a transportation of a standard car.Style has rarely been a priority in induetrial design for the disabled until now. The wheelchair locks into place, within easy reach of car's controls which are centered on a joystick.
The designer's goal was to create a vehicle that would be easily used by disabled drivers, with minimal maintenance and reliable operation, all on a platform that used an "environmentally sound energy source".
