Giant Bus on Legs
This huge new bus is part of China’s new plan to reduce congestion in it’s crowded cities. It is over 18 feet tall and straddles two road lanes under it’s body. With a capacity of around 300 passengers and running by electric motors and solar power, it will be the greener way to travel.
It is hoped these new ‘city monsters’ could make a huge positive impact on pollution in China, it is claimed each bus can reduce fuel use by 860 tons per year, bringing carbon emissions down by 2,640 tons. The designers also claim they could reduce traffic congestion by as much as 30 per cent.
It seems a unique idea, but what about high sided vehicles..? Expect a large crash in the next 12 – 18 months…
