GM EN-V Prototype – “The Future” Never Looked so Present
Want a good indication that the future is here? How about the fact that the products currently in the works make the things that we could have only imagined “to be the future” look primitive and obsolete?
The EN-V (Electric Networked-Vehicle) manufactured by G.M. plans to be hitting the streets as the new “Urban Mobility Vehicle” (think along the lines of a Segway, but not nearly as basic and lame). Tired? Drunk? Hurt or just lazy? The EN-V has you covered as it works autonomously, meaning that it can drive itself with the integrated GPS. In addition to an array of safety features and smart programming for heavy traffic, sudden reaction sensing, and the like, the EN-V is an electric vehicle. It will plug into a conventional wall outlet and will give out around 40 kilometers of juice in one charge and is A-OK for the environment.
There are three different EN-V’s that are prototypes, the Jiao (Pride), Miao (Magic) and Xiao (Laugh). Each of the different models have the same features with a different look, accommodating personal preference. Someone tell the Jetson’s to trade in that space junk for one of these.
