Personal Mobility and Accessibility (PUMA)

The folks at GM and Segway recently announced the results of an 18 month collaboration -- the PUMA 2-seat microcar.
The car is based on Segway's technology, with the addition of GM's research on electric vehicles. They may be a little ambitious, but they are talking about a 2012 release of the new vehicle, at a cost of about 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of a car.
It sounds very cool. We hope it gets past the issues that have limited the acceptance of Segway's scooters.
Thanks to Randal Larson-Maynard for bringing this to our attention.
