Mitsubishi is introducing 40.2 mph speed elevator

Mitsubishi is introducing the world's fastest elevator in the tallest tower of China i.e. Shanghai Tower, which is designed by U.S. architectural firm Gensler.

From SayPeople,

In order to reach the maximum speed and safety Mitsubishi has used a rope of high-intensity steel strands wrapped in plastic with its bullet-like elevator. This elevator has an additional property of “green technology” i.e. its motors have built-in converters that can regenerate electricity causing reduction in the consumption by 30%. Mitsubishi has used several mechanisms to minimize vibrations and to control air pressure.
Shanghai Tower is 632 meter in height and will open in 2014.
