The Segway P.U.M.A. (Personal
Urban Mobility & Accessibility) prototype which was revealed in April 2009 is a vehicle developed through a technology collaboration between Segway and American automotive manufacturer General Motors.

The Segway P.U.M.A is a vehicle which attempts to predict the future of urban transport over short to medium distances. The P.U.M.A. values less over more; taking up less space, using less energy, produced more efficiently with fewer parts, creating fewer emissions during production and operation, all while offering more enjoyment, productivity, and connectivity. It could allow people to travel around cities more quickly, safely, quietly and cleanly - and at a lower total cost.

"Project P.U.M.A. represents a unique solution to moving about and interacting in cities, where more than half of the world's people live," said Larry Burns, GM vice president of research and development, and strategic planning. "Imagine small, nimble electric vehicles that know where other moving objects are and avoid running into them. Now, connect those vehicles in an Internet-like web and you can greatly enhance the ability of people to move through cities, find places to park and connect to their social and business networks."

The Segway P.U.M.A. prototype features a lithium-ion battery, digital smart energy management, two-wheel balancing, dual electric wheel motors, vehicle-to-vehicle communications, autonomous driving and parking, and a dockable user interface that allows off-board connectivity. The vehicle can carry two people at speeds of up to 35 mph (56 km/h) with a range of 35 miles (56 km) between recharges.
