Outline

The "Sora" based on the vision of an "enduring town icon" guided by two ideas: to make best use of the characteristics of the FC unit; and to enhance the comfort of passengers traveling on bus routes. ①We aims to create a bus that works for the world and for people, is environmentally friendly, and can contribute to communities beyond its role as a mobility service. ②The Sora features human-centric universal design and functions, because the bus is envisioned to be used by large and varying numbers of passengers at any given time, We paid close attention to convenience, safety, and peace of mind with the aim to give all passengers a pleasant riding experience, so that they would want to ride the buses regularly.
