Electric cars are doing more than just adapting to the needs of the environment—they're adapting to the needs of the handicapped. TransLogic's Kenguru gives drivers in wheelchairs a lot more conveniency for a lot less money.

Wheelchair conversions can add an extra $14,000 or more to the price of a van or SUV. With federal and state electric vehicle incentives, the price of the Kenguru can be as low as $20,000, or even nothing in certain cases involving vocational rehabilitation incentives.

TransLogic reports that its EV can travel at speeds up to 25 miles per hour with a 60 mile range. Originally developed in Hungary, the Kenguru was brought to the US last year and is now being manufactured in Pflugerville, Texas.
