The test model is powered by electricity and has the capacity of carrying 300 passengers. It is 72 feet long and 25 feet wide.

It is learned after the launching and when the vehicle starts operating in the Chinese cities, it may carry more than 300 passengers and its maximum speed to hit around 40 miles per hour, which is pretty speedy mode of public transport.
