Berlin, Sept 22 (ANI): Delft University of Technology is all set to unveil the prototype of a 155mph "Superbus" in Germany with a carrying capacity of 23 passengers.
Billed as a "future vision of sustainable public transport", the "Superbus" is as long as a conventional bus but no taller than a four-wheel drive sports utility vehicle.
According to the designers, its accommodation would be similar to those found in the business class cabin of an aircraft, The Telegraph reports.
The bus would reportedly run on dedicated lanes built in residential areas, before crossing a barrier and joining the rest of the traffic as it approaches the city centre.
Built from lightweight carbon, it will be powered by four electric motors. The driver will be helped by radar to prevent collisions.
The superbus, which was tested at Lelystad in the Netherlands has only reached a top speed of 50mph.
The Dutch Government has invested 7.5 million pounds of the 8.4 million ponds earmarked for the scheme to date and it is anticipated that the superbus will first enter service in the Netherlands. (ANI)
