The entire 40m-long, 2.65m-wide vehicle was loaded onto an Antonov 225, one of the world's largest cargo aircraft, at Shijazhuang Zhending International Airport.

According to CNR, the 750V dc LRVs have an entrance floor height of 40cm and accommodate up to 453 passengers. The vehicles are equipped with VVVF ac traction equipment and regenerative braking, and are compliant with European DIN5510 fire safety standards. They can operate on a mimumum curve radius of just 19m.

The vehicles were ordered in December 2012 and with a short lead time, CNR opted for the more costly option of delivering the first unit to Turkey by air.
