September 4, 2012
In the world there are buses but also there is the Grand Auto Extra Tram, a bus which premiered this week in Germany as the largest of its kind in the world.
Powered by the boffins at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems Traffic and Infrastructure, the bus is almost 101 feet long, has four steering axles and can carry 256 passengers.
The big bus, which was introduced in the eastern city of Dresden this week, costs about $ 10 million per unit.
The good news for environmentalists is that the vehicle can operate for long periods with electricity.
Matthias Klingner, director of the institute, said: “There is a lot of expertise invested in it. It is a highly efficient bus. “
