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 theFLEXITY Outlook vehicles can be also operated in double traction which allows quick reaction to increasing passenger volumes.
