The type 71-911 tram has been developed specifically for Russian operating conditions and TMH says the vehicle features a patented suspension system to ensure high ride quality even on poor track.

The tram also has an onboard energy storage system, which enables it to operate for up to 1km without drawing power from the overhead electrification system and allows the vehicle to pass through sections where the power is switched off.

TMH says the modular tram can be supplied in a variety of configurations to meet the needs of different operators.

Testing of the prototype vehicle in Moscow is expected to take around two months to complete.
