Electric vehicles and wheelchair users

White box shaped vehicle with green trim, shown here with the lid style front door raisedGood to see designers thinking about customising for the independent travel of wheelchair users. The designers claim that you can wheel yourself into the vehicle and drive yourself without the need for assistance from others. Customisations to suit individuals are available. Because the vehicle is small and box like, the wheelchair user can park so that the ramp will lower directly onto the footpath. Nifty. This vehicle is available in the UK. We might have to wait for more electric vehicles to appear in Australia before this option is available here. See the website for dimensions and other information and more pictures. Perhaps driverless vehicles of the future for everyone might look something like this.
