My wife and I have owned and operated two Segway PT's for about three years now. We use them for short range errands around town which are too far to walk (no time to walk, anyway) and too close to drive. They replaced one of our two cars.
Besides the sheer fun of "gliding" as we call it, we feel very good about the "clean" aspect of electric-powered transportation. Though we realize the power company still has a carbon footprint, electric power seems to have proportionately less of a footprint.
Electric is so much cleaner and neater. No fluids to replenish. No lubricants to replace.
It's cool and quiet, as well.
So we're very much looking forward to our Model S and a more fully electric-powered transportation future!
