Segway and GM announce the PUMA mini electric vehicle
Segway and GM on have announced a new joint project dubbed P.U.M.A., which stands for Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility that aims to create two-wheeled car replacements for cities. These P.U.M.A. transporters would carry two passengers and reach speeds between 25 mph and 35 mph. It has a range of 35 miles (56 km), a top speed of 35 miles per hour, and costs about 35 cents to fully charge.
Segway’s latest prototype is quite a change from the sports cars we’re used to seeing at auto shows.
