FLEXITY Outlook - Valencia & Alicante, Spain
The order for 44 low-floor vehicles by the operator FGV (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana) marks a significant breakthrough for Bombardier in the Spanish tram-market. The 100 % low-floor trams of the BOMBARDIER FLEXITY Outlook family are in service in the cities Valencia and Alicante.
The passenger-friendly vehicles feature a thoroughly step-less interior while using conventional wheel-set bogies. The low-floor trams offer entrances at platform level; additionally, an electric sliding step will facilitate boarding and exiting the vehicle. An especially strong air-condition keeps the temperature low even in midsummer. For the first time the FLEXITY Outlook vehicles can be also operated in double traction which allows quick reaction to increasing passenger volumes.
