G.M. Gets Really, Really Small
America's allegedly clamoring for small cars, and G.M. comes up with a cross between a rickshaw, a compost bin, and a Segway. It's called a P.U.M.A. and it debuted in New York today. I'm not sure this type of thing will help the automaker survive in the short term, but something like this makes sense in urban areas...provided you avoid a collision with some of G.M.'s other products like the Cadillac Escalade. And I'm left wondering how this thing is better than another high-tech invention called a bicycle.
