The elevator in the Shanghai Tower is the world’s fastest elevator. In a ceremony at the end of last year, it was officially awarded the title by the Guinness World Records.

The speedy lift is operated by a Mitsubishi technician who can turn on a switch to make the capsule accelerate up to 42.8 miles/hour (69 kilometres/hour) as it travels up the 632m (2,074ft) tall building.

In comparison, Usain Bolt – the fastest man in the world – runs at 27.44 miles/hour (44 km/hour).

Taking speed to the next level: Shanghai Tower has the world’s fastest elevator and it travels at a record-breaking 42.8mph 

The record-breaking speed was achieved through the development of new equipment, including control panel that can maximize the traction machine's performance

Shanghai Tower’s lift was named the fastest in the world by the Guinness World Records in late 2016 after reaching speeds of 42.8mph (69 km/h) – the equivalent of 18m per second.

The speedy lift is operated by a Mitsubishi technician who can turn on a switch to make the capsule accelerate up to breakneck speeds as it travels up the 632 metre (2,074 foot) tall building.

In comparison, Usain Bolt – the fastest man in the world – runs at 27.44 miles/hour (44 km/hour).  

Although details on how the elevator travels so fast have not been revealed, a Mitsubishi statement said: ‘The record-breaking speed was achieved through the development of new equipment, including control panel that can maximize the traction machine’s performance, and improvements of safety devices such as the speed governor, brake device and buffer.’

This allows the elevator to travel from the second-level basement to the 119th floor in just 53 seconds.

You might expect a ride that fast to come with a roaring sound. 

But the statement added: ‘While Mitsubishi Electric’s cutting-edge technologies drastically increase the speed, the elevator also delivers enhanced safety, top-level riding comfort, silence and power saving.’

China is home to many of the fastest elevators in the world.  In the top eight list, four of the fastest elevators are in China. 

And the only elevator on the list not to be in Asia is the one in the John Hancock Centre in Chicago, which travels at 20.5 mph (33 kph) – less than half the speed of the fastest. 

Despite being the tallest building in the world, the elevator in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai travels at 22 mph (35 kph) – much slower than the Shanghai Tower.   

THE WORLD’S FASTEST ELEVATORS 
Location Building Building Height Elevator Speed
Shanghai, China Jin Mao Tower 421 metres 20 mph/32 kph
Chicago, USA John Hancock Center 457 metres 20.5 mph/33 kph
Beijing, China China World Trade Center Tower III 330 metres 22 mph/35 kph
Shanghai, China Shanghai World Financial Center 492 metres 22 mph/35 kph
Tokyo, Japan Sunshine 60 Building 240 metres 22 mph/35 kph
Dubai, UAE Burj Khalifa 830 metres 22 mph/35 kph
Yokohama, Japan Yokohama Landmark Tower 296 metres 28 mph/45 kph
Taipei, Taiwan Taipei 101 508 metres 37.7 mph/61 kph
