GM + Segway = PUMA |

We don’t know if this is how GM really sees the future of personal transportation or of their really despearate to get some attention, but am I the only one who think we won’t see anything like this going into mainstream for the next, I don’t know, 50 years? Called the PUMA (Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility), this thing you see here is a result of GM and Segway partnership and it’s a two-wheeled electrically powered, two-seat prototype vehicle. According to the two companies, the ‘car’ could allow people to travel around cities more quickly, safely, quietly, cleanly – and at a lower total cost. And they think this could also be a solution for traffic congestion and pollution, which affect thousands of cities around the world. The project P.U.M.A. combines several technologies developed by GM and Segway, including electric drive and batteries, dynamic stabilization (two-wheel balancing), all-electronic acceleration, steering and braking, vehicle-to-vehicle communications and autonomous driving and parking.
