Russia-based research and production company Uralvagonzavod has unveiled their highly futuristic trams at the Innoprom-2014. Called the ‘Russia One’ or ‘R1’, the tram can run for 50 kilometers on batteries alone. This innovative tram also has an overhanging cabin nose that gives the driver a 30% wider view around that can minimize road accidents.
Its interior is modern and stylish as well, with the capacity to carry 190-270 passengers at one time, depending on its configuration. Despite its sleek exterior, the construction of the tram is cost-efficient, with the body made of composition materials and Russia-made bogies—the vital area where wheels meet rails, that are significantly cheaper.
