BEDFORD, N.H., May 21 (UPI) -- A three-wheel electric vehicle designed for use by public safety personnel has been launched by Segway Inc.
The vehicle is called the Segway SE-3 Patroller, powered by multiple rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries that can be charged at any standard electrical outlet or swapped out for replacement batteries.
The vehicle is equipped with an independent direct rear wheel drive, can travel in reverse and perform tight turns. It also features emergency lights, headlight, brake light, siren and lockable storage.
A 4.3-inch color display, which can be read in sunlight, provides information on vehicle speed, status of the vehicle's power supply and distance traveled, the company said.
"Police and security customers will appreciate the SE-3's overall design and specific features," said Chip MacDonald, Segway general manager of Global Patrol, Government Business and Robotics. "It will bring enhanced visibility and versatility to community policing and security patrol programs."
Segway SE-3 Patroller has a base MSRP of $11,999.
