The Kenguru

By Deane Barker on April 19, 2013

An E.V. That Wraps Around a Wheelchair: This vehicle is essentially an exoskeleton that goes over a wheelchair, and “wraps” it so it’s able to travel on the road.  It’s a great idea.

The Kenguru is seven feet long — nearly two feet shorter than the dinky Smart Fortwo — and five feet high. There is, of course, no room for a passenger. The car weighs just 900 pounds, batteries included.

[…] As a neighborhood vehicle, the Kenguru has a top speed of about 25 miles per hour and generally cannot be driven on highways. Travel range is estimated at 45 to 60 miles, with a charging time of eight hours.
