Here’s a newspaper photo and story from the Business section of the Waikato Times, June 2004.
Segway New Zealand helped Genesis Energy promote clean, green electricity generation by wind power at Field Days 2004. The zero-emission “Segway Human Transporter” (as it was known back then) was a perfect fit to carry the message around New Zealand’s single largest show. More than 120,000 people attend this show every year, held over four days at Mystery Creek, near Hamilton.
We’ve had Segway Personal Transporters (as they have been know since 2006) at numerous Field Days since.
For example, in 2007 car company Kia used a fleet of Segway PTs to promote their range of 4WD vehicles to the rural sector.
