LVB awarded the Polish manufacturer a framework contract in March 2015 to supply up to 41 1458mm-gauge vehicles to replace the city’s ageing fleet of Tatra trams. The contract included an initial firm order for five vehicles and an option for nine vehicles was exercised in November 2016.

The 37.63m-long, 2.3m-wide Tramino XL is equipped with four motor bogies and one unpowered Jacobs bogie. Each LRV accommodates up to 220 passengers, 58 of them seated.

The design concept or the four-section 65% low-floor vehicle has been developed by Solaris and LVB in collaboration with IFS Design.
