The evolution of the car has changed dramatically over time, and has produced some of the ground-breaking vehicles we have today. The electric car and smart cars have been innovative vehicles that have pushed the boundaries of how cars can be developed. There is a new electric car/bus combination in the Netherlands that is about to take the world by storm.
The vehicle is called “The Superbus” created by a Dutch astronaut named Wubbo Ockels who first thought of the idea after the debut of the Chinese 3D Fast Bus in 2010. The woman that actually designed the vehicle is an Italian aerodynamicist who has worked for the Ferrari and Williams Formula One teams named Antonia Terzi. This massive bus is more like a sleet looking sports car, and with the top speed of 155 mph it is nothing like a greyhound bus people are used to traveling on.
The 8 door 15 meter long Superbus is not only one of a kind, seating 23 passengers they can ride to their destination in comfort and in style. To cater to its passengers the bus does not have a fixed schedule of where it goes but rather a flexible schedule applying to traveler’s different needs according to Superbusproject.
“This bus will tackle the challenges of mobility, service detail, and environmental demands all in one” Terzi said.
You would think that a vehicle this size and the ability to go this fast would take gas, but the Superbus so unique that it actually uses rechargeable batteries as a result it has low energy consumption. Customers have mentioned that the experience of riding in the Superbus is compared to riding in a luxurious sedan.
The Superbus made its world debut in Dubai a year ago, and with it being a smashing success after its debut, developers are eager to market the vehicle globally now.

According to the people that built it, it’s going to revolutionalize public transport. The Superbus drives 250 kms per hour and is fully electric. It combines the speed of high speed trains with the flexibility of road transport. The Superbus is now in the final stage of testing.
