SkyWay Presents High-Speed Transport Module!

A high-speed unibus (one of the new transportation modules of SkyWay string transport) was displayed to the public for the first time at the International transport trade fair Innotrans 2018 held at the Berlin Exhibition Center “Messe Berlin” on September 18-21.

The novelty is a six-seat high-speed transport module having unique aerodynamic features close to the theoretical limit: its aerodynamic drag factor is Cx = 0.06. The design speed is 500 km/h with the energy consumption of 0.93 kg/100 passengers × km in fuel equivalent. At 100 km/h speed, this consumption rate is less than 0.1 kg/100 passengers × km. These figures will be a record for a minor high-speed wheeled vehicle.

SkyWay Technologies Co. also presented at Innotrans 2018 an eighteen-seat unicar, which has passed the full range of tests and certification, designed for urban passenger traffic at speed up to 150 km/h. This vehicle is equipped only with seats; it has an advanced level of comfort and safety. The unicar is the record holder by efficiency in its class: its energy consumption in fuel equivalent is 0.12 kg/100 passengers × km (at 100 km/h speed).
