Just put a third wheel on the damn thing, forgo about the expensive auto-stabilization features, and they could sell it for a hell of a lot less.

Cool. Thanks for the link.

I'm intrigued, but I wonder why they insist on the 2-wheel platform. It seems like that approach would be unnecessarily complicated.

Since we continue to build roads - and our existing roadways represent a tremendous investment - it seems like we will have to find some way to continue enabling personal, wheeled mobility.

Sorry to sound pessimistic here, but this looks more like a smokescreen to me. Get back to tackling the real problems within GM instead of attempting to fool the public into thinking "we're doing all we can" to save this company...at first I thought bankruptcy might not be the best route for this company but they have proven me wrong(again).

Aero is a harsh mistress. Of course, there's no such excuse for this one.

Another bad day for GM as they recall over a million cars and are pushed to file for bankruptcy.
