So, I heard about this car called the P.U.M.A. that GM is working with the makers of the Segway to create. I then read this blogger’s opinion on the car and it prompted me to write about the car.
P.U.M.A. supposedly stands for “Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility” in my opinion it stands for Practically Useless Mechanical Abomination. One of the executives from Segway was on North Carolina’s Morning News (680 WPTF) this morning and admitted on the show that the car is only practical for around 50% of the country because it only gets up to 35 MPH. How daft is that, “Yeah we’re struggling and begging for a bailout, so we’re going to spend money on inventing a car that only half the country can use, instead of one that would be practical to everyone.”
