Hyundai has taken a break from creating rorty N cars and has created a potential solution to easing smog in polluted city centres.

It’s a 13-metre-long, 4-metre-tall electric bus with two levels, meaning as many as 70 passengers can be seated. While its size means access to some areas may be prohibited, a slew of safety systems as well as rear-wheel-steering will mean drivers should be able to navigate around double-parked cars and pesky lamp posts. There’s Vehicle Dynamic Control, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Keeping Assist to keep other road users safe.

Power comes from a huge 384kWh battery, with a claimed range of 300km. Juicing the battery back up to full takes 72 minutes.

At the moment, the bus is just a concept but it goes to show those city councils looking for a way to transport a lot of people without polluting the air only need to talk to Hyundai.
