Superbus, bus-looking supercar

Back in 2010, the Superbus project is an ambitious attempt to wiggle the personal transportation industry. This new concept in sustainable mobility consists of a new electric vehicles which runs at the speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), new dedicated infrastructure (such as a dedicated lane on highways), and new logistics via a central routing optimization system.

While hard to pinpoint, some have suggested the Superbus is somewhere between a regular bus and a train. It’s advantage over the former is that it’s capable of vastly higher speeds and greater flexibility, not confined to a rigid schedule or route.

As for the latter, infrastructure and implementation is cheaper and does not require the need for changeovers from target to destination. The Superbus’s promise of demand-dependent-door-to-door transportation is a feature neither bus or train has.

Superbus made of carbon fiber and has an electric motor (battery powered) with a length of 15 meters and can accommodate 23 passengers. To improve the comfort and individuality, Superbus has eight gull-wing doors on each side. If we look, Superbus like a limousine, but more longer. Another advantages of Superbus compared with regular bus is no less important is, no standing passengers.
Superbus project is led by Wubbo Ockels, the first Dutch astronaut and a professor of aerospace sustainable engineering and technology at TU-Delft. Besama two other important people, three head of research and development team Superbus. Unfortunately in 2014 the project leader passed away, and the project was not heard from again until today, whether still running or stopped. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUPERBUS | TWISTED SIFTER]
