Going electric to help the disabled

When people talk about electric cars, they usually mention Green jobs and American ingenuity. Here’s a company that we think embodies them both.

Based out of Texas, Community Cars is building the future of electric transportation for the disabled. Till now most disabled people relied on retrofitting cars, using caretakers or public transportation to get by. With Kenguru, people in wheelchairs can roll right up to the driver’s seat and take control of their mobility.

With a top speed of 30 mph and a max. range of 75 miles, Kenguru empowers the disabled to drive to the office, a friend’s house, or run any other errand. The result isn’t just a form of transportation, but a new way to gain independence.
