Generally passenger elevators are available in capacities from 1,000 to 6,000 lb in 500 lb increments. Typically, passenger elevators in buildings eight floors or less are hydraulic or electric, which can reach speeds up to 2.27 mph hydraulic and up to 5.68 mph electric. In buildings up to ten floors, electric & gearless elevators are likely to have speeds up to 5.68 mph. Buildings with over 10 floors generally hit speeds between 6 - 27mph!

The record for the fastest elevator is held by the tallest building in the world, Taipei 101 in China (the record for the tallest building will be claimed by The Burj Dubai when it opens in the fall). The 1667-ft., 101-story building has 67 elevator units, including two that service the 89th-floor observation deck and qualify as the world's fastest. These rocket skyward at a peak speed of nearly 38mph. By comparison, an airline pilot normally maintains a climb, or descent rate, of no more than 11 mph.
