GM EN V concepts

GM recently showcased three new electric networked-vehicle concepts that balance on two wheels while driving. the concepts were developed with the chinese company shanghai automotive industry corp. to showcase the versatility of the two-wheel drivetrain. each design is intended to invoke a different emotion: jiao (pride) in blue, miao (magic) in grey and xiao (laugh) in red. these electric vehicles are intended for use in congested urban centers moving users around completely autonomously. the cars would be equipped with the latest GPS navigation sensors and be networked together to allow the cars to communication with each other. the cars will go 40 miles on a single charge and weigh just over 1,000 pounds. the concepts will be shown off at the world expo in shanghai this may.
