Metro NěVa St. Petersburg

The basic configuration for St. Petersburg’s new generation metro is a six-car variant using eight traction bogies and four conventional bogies. Alternative metro trains can be made up out of a front engine vehicle and various combinations of integrated motorized vehicles and integrated non-motorized vehicles (from three to eight-car train units). 66% of the axles are equipped with traction drive.

 Metro cars and their individual components are designed to be high-performing, reliable, and with an emphasis on low weight. This, along with high energy efficiency, results in low operating costs for the entire life of the units. There is easy access to individual devices and components of the car for maintenance purposes.
