Hyundai on Wednesday unveiled its first electric double-decker bus. It’s the result of an 18-month project with the help of the Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Like many other electrified vehicles on the road, this bus is part of a greater effort to reduce traffic and improve air quality.
It functions like any other bus — the doors open up, people get on, people eventually get off, all that jazz. It’s a little less capacious than you might think, though, with enough space for just 11 seats on the first floor, but 59 seats on the second floor. Yet, thanks to its two-tier layout, it’ll still hold about 1.5 times as many people as a standard bus.
