The EN-V Project

Just about everyone from New Hampshire is familiar with the Segway. The Segway PT is a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle invented by Dean Kamen. It is produced by Segway Inc. of New Hampshire, USA. The name “Segway” is a homophone of “segue” (a smooth transition, literally Italian and Portuguese for “follows”).

The ENV Project

The company was sold in early 2010 to a group led by British millionaire Jimi Heselden, chairman of Hesco Bastion.

The EN-V Project is:
” A collaboration between Segway and General Motors/SAIC, the EN-V project sets a vision for transportation in 2030 at Expo 2010 Shanghai China. EN-V, short for Electric Networked-Vehicle, is a fully functional two-person vehicle with advanced dynamics, connectivity, and sensory capabilities. It combats urban congestion while being environmentally-friendly and fun.  It’s our expression of a “Better City, Better Life.”

The ENV Project

This vehicle could solve very many problems including congestion, pollution and reliance on imported oil.  I hope GM keeps this project moving forward.
