Segway Advanced Development: EN-V

Find out about Segway’s vision for transport in 2030 as revealed today in Shanghai at the Last Mile news page and more at the Segway Advanced Development page. There has been excellent web coverage about these concepts:

“Chinese mega-city commuters currently expend 30 percent of their fuel looking for parking, in part because today’s cars require almost 280 square feet of parking space per car (including aisles) and spend 90 percent of their time parked. But these highly maneuverable EN-V triplets can turn around in just 5.7 feet so they require just 47 square feet of parking (that’s about six EN-Vs to one “normal” car). Because most urban trips are one to three miles in length and are covered at low speeds, these urban mobility vehicles don’t need 300-mile range and 100-mph capability, so the lithium-iron phosphate battery pack is limited to a 25-mile range and the combined 12-hp of the two DC motors top out 25 mph.”
