Based on the design ordered last year by the Turkish city of Eskisehir, the five-section air-conditioned vehicles for Sofia will accommodate nearly 200 passengers at 5 passengers per m2.

The order includes spare parts and staff training.

The tender attracted one other bid from Polish manufacturer Pesa, which has previously supplied Swing low-floor LRVs to Sofia.
