The base order for 123 LRVs comprises 85 33m-long bidirectional vehicles, 18 33m-long unidrectional vehicles, and 24 24m-long unidirectional vehicles. The contract includes an option for 45 33m-long vehicles of each type.

Hyundai Rotem submitted a bid of Zlotys 1.85bn ($US 480m) net. Warsaw Tramways says it rejected an offer from a consortium of Stadler Poland and Solaris because the proposed delivery timeline did not satisfy its requirements. A bid from Pesa exceeded the budget for the order.

All vehicles in the base order must be delivered by October 2022. The procurement is being partially-funded by the European Union.

Warsaw Tramways abandoned a previous tender for 213 trams in August 2017 after the highest-scoring bid, which came from Škoda Transportation, exceeded the operator’s budget. A revised tender was launched in September 2018.
