Answering “Yes” to every one of those questions has been our mission since opening our doors almost 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.
