Personal Urban Mobility And Accessibility Project

Personal Urban Mobility And Accessibility Project

General Motors and Segway have joined forces, resulting in the Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project (PUMA) that aims to deliver a self-balancing two-wheeled vehicle which carries two people at up to speeds of 35 mph, which is nearly three times faster than Segway’s 12 mph top speed, with a 35 mile range to boot. It will be powered by a lithium battery, while boasting a built-in communications device that can “talk” to similar vehicles in the vicinity in order to further reduce the risk of accidents. There is no word on pricing yet, but we’re looking at a quarter of the price of a traditional automobile. Curious folks can check out the PUMA project at the New York Auto Show this week.
