An SUV you could love...The Segway Centaur

Maybe it was the shudder that came from seeing the US President fall over on their Human Transporter that got the engineers at Segway thinking new thoughts. Like 2 more wheels for stability. Whatever the stimuli, they ran up this little beauty, called the Centaur. It travels up to 20 mph (32kph), without any exhaust. Not only does it use an electrical battery, it recharges the same simply by braking or careering down hills (bit like the Toyota Prius does). Sounds too good to be true? It is. Segway have no plans to commercialise their concept. ::Segway Centaur [by WM]
