When the Russian tanks manufacturer makes the tram

Recently a Russian company, UVZ (Ural Vagon Zavod) showcased the commuter train or tram called the R1 (Russia One) that has a very futuristic looks and has several advantages than the existing today.

From the shape or design certainly cool, but more importantly, there is a technology that can make the train travel is much more comfortable and smoother despite the train tracks in unfavorable conditions.

For the front carriage where the driver is located, indeed shaped differently than usual with a slightly sloping windshield, it is useful to give the driver a wider viewing angle (30% wider) and facilitate the driver to see if there are people on his side.

In terms of aerodynamics does not support at all with such a form, but as this will be used as a commuter train with the speed is only about 24 km/h so there is not needed aerodynamic shape.

Inside, passengers are pampered with some features such as the LED lights that can change color to provide comfort, GPS, air conditioning, anti-bacterial handrails as well as Wi-Fi connection.
The R1 is scheduled to be launched in 2015 to carry passengers ranging from 190-270 passengers once way. As additional information, the UVZ known as the tanks manufacturer so it is not surprising also if the train looks so unique. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | URAL VAGON ZAVOD | THE MOSCOW TIMES]
