The modest dimensions of the Personal Rover
Folded up and ready to slip into a car trunk
Slow enough to mix with pedestrians, fast enough to make progress
The Personal Rover is not limited to concrete paths
The Personal Rover is steered by body weight
It is no secret that personal transportation form factors are beginning to diverge and a new one caught our attention this week that is almost certain to carve itself a niche in this intensely interesting and competitive space. It's not as sexy as a Yikebike, Honda U3-X or Toyota Winglet, but it is easy to use, has a range of 12 miles (20 km), a top speed of 15 mph and a price under US$1000. At 90 pounds, the Personal Rover is not exactly small, but it folds up so it can be rolled on castor wheels inside a building, and will easily fit inside a car boot to fulfill secondary transport duties.
