EN-V Electric Pod Testing

GM

General Motors has announced that it will conduct real-world trials of 100 EN-V two-seat electric pod cars. Officials claim that the trials are aimed at speeding up the development of the EV-V urban transport pod. These pods were first shown at the Shanghai Expo last year. GM wants to perfect the pods' styling, develop a network communication system and engineer an alternative powerpack to replace the two-wheel Segway 'skateboard' used in the concepts.

In the meantime, GM is planning on testing the cars in a one-square-mile site free of other vehicles. So far the idea of testing in an Olympic village has come up as a possible site for testing.
