A woman in a wheelchair wanted to help people like her to become more independent, so she designed and is now manufacturing an innovative electric car that provides easy access and drivability, without ever getting out of your chair.
Stacy Zoern was an intellectual-property attorney in Austin, Texas when she came up with the idea. She quit her job and began to build her new company, Kenguru.
The environmentally friendly car has a top speed of 35 mph and is designed for getting around on neighborhood or city streets. It is steered by a motorbike-style handlebar and has room for just the driver.
Kenguru has secured millions of dollars from investors and the company projects the cars will sell for around $25,000.
