Riding with General Motors EN-V at CES 2011

GM has previously featured this GM’s EN-V personal mobility pods at the World Expo Shanghai, and it is featured again at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Las Vegas. It looks like a evolution from the Segway which it is said to be build on GM’s earlier work with Segway Inc but the EN-V has much potential to tackle pollution, traffic congestion and limited parking space in the city. And with a hood and a two seater, it is much more practical.

The EN-V has a top speed of 25 mph (approximately 40km/h), this pod weight 500kg and has a 50km range. It is measured at 1.5 meter by 1.5 and is packed with GPS, digital maps, vehicle sensors, cameras and other decides. This Electric Vehicle uses electricity from our ordinary outlets and it is said that the operating cost will be lowered to one-third to one-forth compare to a pessenger car. And it could be driven automatically, I guess they could work together with Google for this.
