Electric BMW mobility for Kiwi kids

Electric BMW mobility for Kiwi kids

BMW New Zealand has partnered with a new not-for-profit organisation which helps young children with restricted mobility get moving by using specially modified electric vehicles.

GoBabyGo is a charity which facilitates placement of vehicles with children who can benefit, and coordinates and implements the structural modifications to personalise each vehicle to a child’s specific requirements.

Designed to stimulate motor skills, the vehicles also enable children to interact with others in their peer group, empowering them to be part of the action at home and in the playground, help them learn how to orient themselves in the space around them, and can have therapy benefits, for example by using a headrest-mounted throttle to help a child learn to keep their head up.

Seven year old Jiselle (pictured above) has a severe heart complaint and can’t keep up with her younger siblings without assistance. Now, thanks to a new electric BMW from GoBabyGo, she can race around with her sisters without becoming exhausted.
