The Monpal, which does not require a driver's license, allows people with limited walking abilities or other disabilities to extend their sphere of activity. Developed completely from the perspective of users, the Monpal is started and stopped with an easy-to-operate lever and can be charged simply by connecting it to a regular household 100V power outlet.
The Road Traffic Act treats the Monpal as 'pedestrian' status.
