GM Will Show Off EN-V Mobility Vehicle at CES 2011
 
 

If you needed any further proof that cars and vehicles are just big gadgets, you only need to look at the fact that GM will reportedly be showing off its electric powered EN-V mobility device at CES 2011 next month. At a glance, the thing looks like the pod that Mark Walberg rode in the crap remake of Planet of the Apes.

Along with the crazy EN-V mobility vehicle, GM will also be showing off its new vehicle infotainment system and a few more two-seat electric vehicle concepts. The mobility vehicles are said to have an electric driving range of 25-miles and are designed on the Segway self-balancing Puma platform that has two wheels.

The EN-V has drive by wire tech inside and has a carbon fiber body and GPS. Other tech includes a distance sensing system and communications capability between vehicles and the power grid. That tech will allow the vehicle to be driven by the user and to drive itself around. The concept sounds out there to me. I don't see this sort of EV ever catching on, at least until the point that batteries will allow for longer driving distances and quicker recharges.

It's cool to see the automakers getting into the swing of CEs. For a long time the show has been all about electronics, though the automotive tech area is one of my favorite areas with all sorts of car stereos, monitors, and tons of hot booth babes.
