A luxury double-decker electric bus capable of running at least 150 kilometers on one charge has been developed in Beijing.

The bus is one of the seven types of electric buses developed by Beijing BIT Clean EV Co., Ltd., which has been commissioned by the government to develop environment-friendly electric vehicles for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing.

The seven types of electric buses developed by the company have all passed appraisals and acceptance checks of the state. These vehicles boast top speeds ranging from 80 kilometers to 95 kilometers and running distances of 150 kilometers to 300 kilometers on one charge.

China plans to serve the coming Olympic Games with more than 1, 000 Chinese-made electric vehicles. Prior to that, 20 electric buses will soon hit the roads in Beijing.
