LCT Magazine
Posted on April 15, 2011
Last month, LCT reported on the 23-passenger, 155mph LUXURY ELECTRIC SUPERBUS that was showcased at the Commercial Vehicles Middle East convention in Dubai, and NEW PHOTOS AND VIDEO have recently been released.
Developed by former Dutch astronaut Wubbo Ockels and former BMW-Williams Formula 1 team aerodynamics expert Antonia Terzi, the Superbus is constructed with ultra-light carbon fiber material and is powered by an electric motor backed up by lithium polymer batteries. The project began in 2004 and has thus far cost around $19 million. The interior features television, internet access, and air bags fitted for each passenger.
The developers said the Superbus is likely to go into service in the United Arab Emirates if it passes government inspections. -- Michael Campos, LCT assistant editor
