New FLEXITY Dresden tram mock-up  

On January 6, 2020, a model of the new FLEXITY Dresden tram was presented by our customer Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe (DVB) in Dresden, Germany. 

The new FLEXITY trams are wider than DVB’s current vehicles and offer significantly greater comfort for passengers with 2+2 seating and large panorama windows. The new trams will be able to carry up to 290 passengers, which is around a 10 per cent increase. 

Before the new cars are produced, the design and functionality must be tested on a model. During the event, all guests could view the train model in the Transport Museum and speak to the experts present. Over the next few weeks, various user groups and future passengers will be testing the FLEXITY tram model's equipment design and functionality. This will enable us as a manufacturer, together with our customer, their employees and future passengers, to implement optimizations during the ongoing design process and avoid costly changes after the start of production.
