Why do those things still cost $6,800?! I could actually purchase one, but I am not spending that much!
What is relevent about a Segway? The Segway is the dumbest product! There is not one use for a Segway that a bicycle could not do better.

As I understand it the purpose of the plug in Prius is to leave the city under electric power to reduce smog. Then drive normally outside city limits while charging up the batteries to then reenter the city again on battery power. If you want to commute on batteries get an electric car.
