Roughly the size of a studio apartment, the world’s largest passenger elevator weighs a whopping 16 tons, is supported by 9 steel cables, and can accommodate up to 235 people at a time.

In 2022, Finnish elevator company KONE installed the world’s largest passenger elevator inside the Jio World Center building in Mumbai, India.

Designed to cater to large groups of people attending weddings or exhibitions at the state-of-the-art convention center, this marvel of design and engineering measures 25.78 square meters and offers all-round scenic views of the complex and its beautiful gardens.

Due to its enormous size, the world’s largest passenger elevator relies on an innovative pulley beam system that consists of 18 large pulleys, 9 steel cables, and rails fixed over steel columns.

The world’s largest passenger elevator features a unique four-panel glass door, glass walls offer panoramic views, and a crystal-studded ceiling.

Although it only travels between five floors, at a speed of 1 meter per second, the record-breaking elevator also features two comfortable sofas for passengers to rest on.

“We are pleased to announce that the world’s largest passenger elevator is by Kone, and it is in India!” Amit Gossain, Managing Director of KONE Elevators India, said.

“We pride ourselves in offering custom-built solutions for unique projects. Besides our India team, the company’s major project experts globally collaborated for design and delivered this most challenging and complex project.”
