I do not understand why GM is receiving so much attention for their new product in conjunction with Segway Inc., All of the TV news stations were rather excited about this development; however personal vehicles have been around and under development for quite some time.
Toyota has been pushing this type of transportation since 2003. Presenting Toyota’s 2003 personal mobility concept.
Next the 2006 Toyota i-Swing
And finally Toyota’s amazing i-Real. Watch the following video from the U.K’s Top Gear to get a sense for how advanced Toyota is compared to the uninspired wire frame shell GM just presented to the public.
GM is behind the times. I think we all recognize that, but do they? Based on the hype they are trying to drum up about the PUMA I think not!
