General Motors Corp. and Segway were showing off their "Project PUMA" prototype electric people mover in New York today for the New York auto show. Here's a story on the introduction from AutoWeek's Greg Migliore. Since it's a prototype, they're not talking about what kind of materials might go into an actual production vehicle, if it's made, though obviously there would be some at least in the lithium-ion batteries. Check out this video of the prototype driving around the city. It looks a lot like a speedy electric wheelchair that can fit two people. You'd better be really friendly with the person sitting next to you -- because anyone who sees you driving down the road together is going to assume you're really friendly.
