      I e-mailed them about all of that. Will post what I hear back. Also can't take any passengers, and wondering about how you would carry groceries or other cargo. Want to know about crash testing and if it can be used on the freeway or only surface streets.

          Yes, you found what I recalled. The new company states this on their site:
          Launched in 2011, and recently acquired by KLD Energy Technologies. Kenguru is committed ..........
          I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

            seriously thats a clown car. Probably good to get you from one place to another surface streets. I would think it wouldn't hold up to any type of crash.

              Responses I got from my e-mail to company:

              Message:
              • Top speed?? Depending on your state?s LSV laws ? usually 25 or 35 mph
              • Freeway use or only surface streets?? Roads posted 35 0r 45 mph, again, depends on your state
              • Range? Minimum 60 miles, depends on use
              • Crash testing completed? Yes, the space frame has been crash tested
              • Cost? Base will be approximately $25,000 with upgrades available

                  I thought it would be like a Smart Car that can at least get up to 60 mph.
                  It's a cool idea but not for freeway dependent cities like where we live.

                      For 25K you can get like 600 of something rather similar, put new batteries in, add a sheet of plywood in the back for a ramp, take the seats out, and you are all set!

                        Dangerous

                        Requires you to back down ramp without sides to get out.
