PUMA Project (Segway For Two)

Segway and General Moters have teamed up to make PUMA or the Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility vehicle. Picture a segway for two; or just watch the clips.

The prototype is roughly 300 pounds and runs on dual electric motors using lithium-ion batteries. It can get 35 miles on a single charge and go 35 miles per hour.

Maybe I am being a bit pessimistic, especially without knowing the price, but hopefully GM is not pegging its hopes for recovery on this.
