Segway is the leader in personal, green transportation, developing products that transform the way you work, play and live. Since the introduction of the Segway® Personal Transporter (PT), Segway has established itself as a leader in the emerging small electric vehicle (SeV) space. Our approach to congestion and environmental challenges is balanced with a strong understanding of the functional needs of our customers, enabling them to do more with less.
Today, we are focused on serving our customers by developing safe, unique products that are redefining personal transportation for consumers and businesses. Segway works with commercial and municipal organizations to realize the benefits of zero-emission personal transportation that increase productivity and utilize existing infrastructure. Together with our customers, we help government leaders create the framework to adopt these new technologies and safely and wisely integrate them into society. For our investors and dealers, we create successful new business opportunities with an exciting roadmap to the future.
We continue to focus our research and development efforts on creating green personal transportation solutions that challenge convention. Our commitment to the development of small purely-electric transportation solutions, including our collaboration on the GM Opel Flextreme project in 2007, demonstrates our expertise and success in this space. The EN-V Project represents yet another unconventional approach to today’s urban congestion and environmental challenges. The result is a fully-functional two-person vehicle with advanced dynamics, connectivity, and sensory capabilities that demonstrate technology that exists today and can be developed quickly.
Segway is passionately committed to innovation and the future of mobility to move you – easily, efficiently, intelligently, simply.
Answering “Yes” to every one of those questions has been our mission since opening our doors more than ten years ago. This has meant re-imagining virtually every piece of conventional wisdom about the last century of transportation – from how it moves, to the fuel it uses, to how you control it.
The result is electric transportation that doesn’t look, feel or move like anything that has come before. And of all the conventional wisdom we’ve left in pieces behind us, none has been shattered more fully than the belief that we must choose between “more” and “less”.
In 2001, Dean Kamen announced the arrival of the first self-balancing, zero emissions personal transportation vehicle: the Segway® Personal Transporter (PT). Founded on the vision to develop highly-efficient, zero-emission transportation solutions using dynamic stabilization technology, Segway’s research and development was focused on creating devices that took up a minimal amount of space, were extremely maneuverable and could operate on pedestrian sidewalks and pathways.
In 2006, the second generation Segway PTs were introduced. All the products feature breakthrough LeanSteer™ technology and a wireless InfoKey™ controller that enhance the Segway experience by making the ride even more intuitive and adding new and useful functions.
Today, Segway continues to develop safe, unique transportation solutions that address urban congestion and pollution and leverage our in-house expertise. No matter the platform, our products allow you to experience more with less.
