The ForCity Classic Konya trams are of the same design concept as the trams for Miskolc and they use identical components.
The main difference is the reduced overall width of the vehicle (by 100 mm), the installation of automatic couplings that enable the operation of large-capacity tram units, as well as the use of more powerful air conditioning systems that are required for the hot summers.
The last 12 vehicles were equipped with a high-capacity battery which allows the tram to travel up to 15 km without the need for recharging. This facility will be used on a newly constructed city centre line.
The 32.5 meter long, five-section bi-directional tram can carry 210 passengers (4 persons/m2) with 56 seats.
The delivery of the first vehicles to the Turkish city of Konya took place in autumn 2013; the remaining 72 vehicles were delivered in 2015. A motif of Whirling Dervishes, the ancient symbol of the city, was included in the vehicle design at the customer’s request.
