An electric unicycle (EUC) is a self balancing (front to back) monowheel.  It uses balancing technology similar to the original Segway units.

How much do they cost?

You can spend between $200 and $3500 depending on size, range, power, and top speed.

How fast and how far can they go?

Currently the top speed on some models is roughly 50 mph.  Range is greatly dependent on rider weight, terrain, and wind conditions.  Some models go less than 10 miles on a full charge, others can go 50-75 miles between charges.
