New Scooters by Segway

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Segway and GM
General Motors and Segway have created the contraption above, a two-wheeled urban scooter/segway that runs on batteries! It is called the Personal Urban Mobility and Accessability (PUMA) and is aimed to be released in 2012. Nevertheless, it only reaches 35 mph and is sort of a follow up from the failed BMW C1. To me, the PUMA kind of looks like a westernized fuel-efficient rickshaw, and I just hope they bring this to Asia's most polluted cities. This new innovation begs the question: is this the real solution to the problems surrounding urban transportation?
