Close to what I had in my mind when I was talking about class of vehicles between motorcycle and a car. Just drop the "segway-type control" stupidity and that could be rather useful as small-range commuter (why not longer rides too, but for short distances for one person small lightweight single-seater is much better than seven person two-ton tank).
Much better aerodynamics than any normal car.
What were the details and implications of their recent fuel cell car planned for 2015 delivery?
They would be better off making electric scooters/motorbikes. Europe is full of those. So are most third world countries.
I'm a proponent of the Lit Motors concept with the gyroscopic stability feature.
