Electric Car Startup is Revolutionizing Mobility for Wheelchair Users

Stacy Zoern’s electric-car startup Kenguru is starting to revolutionize mobility for millions of wheelchair users. Her Kenguru hatchback enables users access the vehicle using its rear-opening tailgate and automatic ramp, securing their wheelchairs via interlocking device. It has no seats.

According to Zoern, president and co-founder of the Pflugerville, Texas-based company, “People with disabilities are a very underserved segment of the population, with huge needs. Just getting to work is a huge challenge.” In fact, Kenguru has bagged $4 million from investors and has announced plans to enter production later this year.
