Just in case you have yet to hear of the company named Segway before, do bear in mind that they happen to be the world’s leading provider of electric personal transportation, and we have seen this particular “ride” appear across many different places, ranging from malls to zoos and other public areas to help people get around from one place to another with ease, especially those who happen to suffer from physical infirmities. Well, this time around, Segway has something that targets the public safety market, having launched the SE-3 Patroller that will feature three wheels and carry a rather hefty base price of $11,999.
Rod Keller, President of Segway, shared, “Our goal was to bring a feature-rich, quality-made three-wheel vehicle to law enforcement and public safety customers at a competitive price. Based on Segway’s reputation for innovative design and quality workmanship, we anticipate the market’s reception to the SE-3 Patroller to be very strong.”
The Segway SE-3 Patroller should not come across as a surprise to anyone, since it is a natural extension of Segway’s Patroller product range. The SE-3 Patroller is said to be the ideal match when it comes to applications that require a larger vehicle, in addition to it showing off a more visible and obvious security and community relations presence. It will also work great in situations where a ride will need to frequently mount and dismount the vehicle during a patrol round.
What keeps the SE-3 Patroller up and running? Well, multiple rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries get the job done, and they can be charged at any standard electrical outlet or swapped out for replacement batteries to pave the way for continuous use. There is an independent direct rear wheel drive that allows the SE-3 Patroller to travel in reverse and turn in a very tight radius, while it will also be accompanied by rugged Whelen emergency lights, headlight, brake light, siren and lockable storage.
