Superbus: An All-Electric Vehicle Concept Unveiled by TU Delft


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.

  1. It is no wonder that this machine will only do 50 mph. The wide open wheel wells are obvious, gigantic mistakes, so is the lack of a boat tail and doubtless, the lack of a smooth underbelly pan. Thus, the vehicle could be larger, faster, and go further, but no! Fashion rules in this realm of aerodynamic design!
