The Delft University of Technology has recently presented in Germany at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Hannover, its latest “green” vehicle concept.
The vehicle that has been Dubbed Superbus, is as long as a normal bus and has the same height as a conventional SUV, being capable to carry about 23 passengers. According to the designers, the new electric bus is a “future vision of sustainable public transport.” It also features an aerodynamic design to create a sustainable, fast and comfortable mode of public transport.
The Superbus is made from lightweight carbon and it is powered by four electric motors that could propel it to a top speed of 155 mph. The creators want to combine a high-speed mode of transport with flexible and sustainable travel.
The “electric bus” had been tested at Lelystad in the Netherlands and was able to reach a speed of just 50 mph. The Dutch Government spent £7.5 million to build this giant electric vehicle and as the company said, the Superbus will first be used in the Netherlands.
