"Classic Simplicity"

"A New Bus for London," which, as you may have gathered, looks to replace the aging double-decker people mover with something a bit more modern. Hugh Frost has answered the call with a design he calls the Freight*Bus, and it hides plenty of innovative new features in its classic two-story shape. For instance, the bus would be powered by in-wheel electric motors that would get their power from batteries (likely) or hydrogen fuel cells (much less likely). Cutting petrol out of the equation would have the obvious benefit of improving the bustling city's air quality. I wonder if this is still under consideration ???
