The plan to purchase new low-floor LRVs to replace the existing fleet, which does not have step-free access, was approved by Würzburg city council in January 2018. WSB, which carries 20 million passengers annually, had previously tested the Transtech (now Skoda) Artic LRV in 2014 following its display at InnoTrans.
WVV says HeiterBlick offered the best vehicle concept according to the tender.
The vehicles will weigh 49.4 tonnes and have a power rating of 760kW operating from 750V dc electrification.
The new five-section LRVs will each have 76 seats and space for 147 standing passengers, as well as wheelchairs, bikes and buggies. Air-conditioning will be fitted along with Wi-Fi, passenger information systems and 20 USB charging points.
Delivery will begin in 2022 and continue until 2024.
