    This is on You tube and I don't know what country, but what an idea for small town use, at lower speeds, and it would be inexpensive too.

    No can do. Youtube is not working for me today. Everything else seems
    to be fine. Very likely in day or two Youtube will work and something else
    won't. For the last couple months the search function keeps throwing me
    onto EBay. All too frustrating.

    As the Canadians put it so eloquently,

    Youtube let me view the video. What an amazing car. The back flips open
    and the driver can wheel in. Then still in the wheelchair, operate the car.
    It has controls like a motorcycle.

    The car is called the Kenguru although it does not seem to hop. It goes
    up to 30 mph for a distance of 30 miles between charges. It holds only
    the driver.

    A green car although the one in the video was yellow. Would have been
    great for my brother in law who was disabled with polio. He had a big
    van adapted so he could drive.

    Thanks for the heads up, 2Cat.

    I saw a video of this car being used in a very busy famous "round about" in Italy and in busy traffic and it handled beautifully. Considering that vehicles for disabled are so incredibly expensive, this would seem to be a real break through for people without much money.

    I also read that one foreign country was giving them away to the disabled.
