Double Decker future

London has begun converting its iconic double-decker buses to electric models made by China’s BYD, and now Hyundai plans to jump into the fray with a new bus that can carry 70 passengers—not quite double what a regular bus can carry but about 1.5 times the capacity, Hyundai says.

The company introduced its new double-decker at the Land, Infrastructure, and Technology Fair in Korea last month.

Hyundai says it has a range of about 188 miles and can fully recharge its liquid-cooled 384-kilowatt-hour charge in an hour and a quarter.

Its primary motivation comes from a 321-horsepower motor on the independently-sprung drive axle as well as a smaller motor to recover electricity on the third axle.
