What I love about China is its “get stuff done” attitude. When the rendering of the straddling bus first came out, it had some obvious flaws. The fact the mid-section is fixed and can’t possible bend as the vehicle goes around the corner.  Though, this concept got people excited enough to give it a go. So here you can see in the video below its real. The bus is being tested in Qinhuangdao.
Obviously it will take some time to have everything ready for full scale operations, but it’s an awesome start.


Looks it has some train inspired bogies for turning this time.


The body 'bends' like a slug in the original concept.
