Physical Disability + the Automobile

Last year, Honda showed off a concept vehicle with a small personal transporter, the U3-X, strapped to the inside of the door. This is the closest we’ve seen to seamless integration of specialized needs into a mass-production vehicle – it’s too bad the Honda EV-N is only a concept. Clearly, there’s opportunity for better integration of personal mobility devices within a primary means of transportation. It’s also clear that there are not enough numbers to support the development of, and the incorporation of, such functionality within all cars. Could we have just one?

If there was a car / car type that you’d like to see incorporate this feature, what would it be?
