About two years ago, in an effort to bring more clean technology to China, actor Jackie Chan opened up a Segway dealership in Hong Kong. The martial-arts action star today insists that sales are going well, despite the two-wheeled electric scooter costing about $10k — double the US price. From the article,

“He sells the scooters in Macau, South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam. ‘This is very little money to me. I don’t rely on this to make money,’ he said. Chan’s business partner, Matt McGuire, said they aim to sell 600 to 1,000 Segway scooters in China this year. Security and grounds staff at the Olympics will use about 100, the Beijing airport’s new terminal has ordered four, and police in the eastern province of Shandong have bought 30 scooters to patrol the Olympic sailing venue, he said.”

Since opening the dealership in 2006, McGuire says Chan’s business has grown steadily, with revenue now in the millions of dollars US annually. It’s good to profits from all of those Rush Hour movies making a difference somewhere…
