A team of students from the Netherlands has made an electric bus capable of a maximum speed of 250 km/h.
Delft University of Technology presented their new project – a 15 meters electric bus. That bus can carry 23 passengers and reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Its autonomy is about 210 km in mixed.
The project, called Superbus, is tested in as a prototype and promises to be a very environmentally friendly means of transport.
According to its creators, the system would require passengers to enter the destination through SMS and then choose the shortest route between those destinations.
It is unclear how this system would operate in a system with stations, but the Dutch have to provide a good solution in the near future.
