Hyundai Unveiled E4U Concept at Seoul

We know Asians are a bit weirder than the rest of the world, either for their lifestyle, habits, food an even now even cars.

Take Hyundai’s newly unveiled E4U concept from the 2013 Seoul Motor Show for example, which looks like an egg with headlights and fins at the back.

Hyundai wanted to make a safer version of the well known Segway, so it is almost the same idea: electric powered lightweight structure that you drive by leaning your body forward/backward and left/right. This, however, appears to have more stability, provided by the two retractible arms/legs with wheels at the back. It also offers more protection than a Segway from the egg-shaped body, and provides easy access thanks to carvings created in its shell.

The E4U is powered by a 500W electric motor that will push it up to a 30 km/h (19 mph) top speed. Oh, and to help the driver keep the bugs out teeth at that speed, the automaker developed a small windshield for him to "wear" on the head.
