Gargantuan Bus (Largest in World) Transports 256 Passengers

August 31st, 2012 by  


 

The macdaddy of buses has hit the scene. Meet the AutoTram Extra Grand: a 98-foot, 256 passenger carrier. The bus, which concept developer Fraunhofer IVI hails as the largest bus in the world, has some green features, including a battery storage system that enables all-electric operation for up to 8 kilometers.

The prototype of the beastly bus is expected to be tested in Dresden in late 2012.
