412. Bright Idea: The Kenguru Car July 30, 2007

A person in a wheelchair can pull right into the Kenguru car and immediately drive away. This $12K Hungarian electric vehicle can go up to 25 mph and as far as 35 miles, and is steered with a joystick. Via SciFiTech.

Clearly, this is a Bright Idea, but I have 2 questions: (1) Is it being massed produced, and why only in Hungary? (2) What is the length? Because it should be able to be parked perpendicularly along the side of streets so the person can enter directly from the curb (i.e. parallel parking would limit clearance space behind the car for vehicle entrance/exit, and the curb would be an obstacle).
