    What the hell kind of chair is that?
    And why is it color-matched to the car?

      Too bad it tops out at only 25 mph in the US (as do all "neighborhood vehicles" by regulation).

        at first, i though he was on something since it was so yellow like the car!

        I can't decide if it's cute or weird. interesting and neat idea for some, i'm sure to a certain (though probably smaller) crowd it'll be a wonderful solution. Too bad yes about the 25mph limit-would do me no good.

          I think it's a great idea, especially for those that only need to get around town. Any idea about the price?

            I hope they have a ramp option for the back, I'd hate to depend on all curbs being the same height. Then there's places that have no curb.

            The 25 mph thing is hard to take too. But maybe that's just us in the US.

            Cute otherwise.

              According to the site...
              You enter the Kenguru on an automatically lowering ramp, which comes down as the back door opens at the press of the key.
              ...
              Put the key in the ignition switch and the back door shuts lifting the ramp at the same time. The Kenguru will not start until the wheelchair is in a correct locking position and the door has been fully closed

                  Are you kidding? Look at how small the wheels are! The whole thing is made of plastic!

                  Why would you WANT to go faster than 25mph in that thing?

                  It is kinda neat.

                    At that point it doesn't matter if you're going 45 or the other guy. You're toast either way in an accident, so you might as well get to your destination faster. I saw something on TV several weeks ago where FL retirement communities are driving around in miniature cars, basically glorified golf carts. I think this is along the same principle. This probably wouldn't be a wise choice for most parts of the U.S.

                    On a side note, where do you put your groceries?

                      Another LSV (maximum 25 mph) vehicle can be seen here. www.quovis.com It now has a drive by joy-stick option. (90 mpg is something I could handle and really learn to like.)

                        It was quoted at $25k in the website.

                          Those wheels and tires are tiny.
                          Sorry, but some handcycles are faster than this thing.
