En 12 m lang elbus baseret på et 40 kWh superkondensator modul er netop indviet i Aalborg. Elbussen testes de næste 6 måneder på en strækning mellem lufthavnen, banegården og universitetet i Aalborg. Elbussen har en begrænset rækkevidde på 30-40 km, hvorfor der er installeret hurtigladere i hver ende af ruten. Bussen tilkobles laderen via en pantograf, der kan oplade bussen på 6 minuter.
