GM's fate is sealed, good bye behemoth.

Can anyone explain why a bunch of sensitive electronics and gyroscopes on two wheels is better than four wheels?

Why do you hate America so much?

so long as it can control lateral forces, it could be interesting to see one climb off road terrain.

but uh no it's mainly a display of one-upmanship

It's not. But because of stupid government regulations that don't keep pace with technology, this is what we're left with if we want small electric vehicles that are street legal.

Two and three wheeled street vehicles are regulated by laws governing motorcycles. Anything with four must adhere to much stricter safety standards and expensive crash tests.

Would you believe people have even had problems with getting inspection stickers for electric cars in some places because they can't be tested for emissions?

You'd be better to ask why they didn't go with three wheels instead of four. In that case, I suppose that there may be regulations which forced their hand with that as well, or perhaps they chose to go with two because parralel parking becomes a breeze since you can just pivot on the central axis.

Then again, maybe it's just because they're Segway, and that's what they do. They wouldn't make a three wheeled vehicle, because that's not a technology they can really market, improve upon, or specialize in.

"Three instead of two" I meant to say.

Where would I put.... anything? I can't even bring home dinner in this little shit.

Well you put dinner in your backpack and you hang your backpack from the conveniently located hook on the back and then you don't hit any bumps on the way home.

Chibisuke
It's a two seater. Put your dinner on the seat next to you, since you are obviously eating at home alone if you're driving one of these.

While we're at it, the new crime of 'drive-by stabbing' could be invented with this thing.
