FOLLOWING China's first public tender for low-floor LRVs, CSR Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock has been awarded a contract to supply 18 Flexity 2 vehicles for the first phase of the light rail network in Suzhou, which is currently under construction.

The order is the first to be won by CSR Puzhen under the 10-year licensing agreement with Bombardier the two companies signed in July last year, which allows CSR to manufacture and sell low-floor LRVs in China using Bombardier technology.

The five-section bi-directional vehicles for Suzhou will be 32m long and 2.65m wide.
