Segway off balance; hangs it up

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
Segway, which boldly claimed its two-wheeled personal transporter would
revolutionize the way people get around, is ending production of its
namesake vehicle.

The Segway PT, popular with tourists and police officers but perhaps better
known for its high-profile crashes, will be retired on 15 July, the company
said in a statement.

*****

Ten months after buying the company in 2009, British self-made millionaire
Jim Heselden died after the Segway he was riding careened off a 30ft cliff
not far from his country estate north of London. He was 62 years old.
