The trams will be equipped with state-of-the-art information systems, cameras and many other innovations. The maximum operating speed of the trams will be 80 km/h. Vehicles will also provide barrier-free access for wheelchair users and baby prams.

The trams will be operated in Mannheim, Heidelberg and Ludwigshafen, which are cities located in three different federal states of Germany, namely Baden-Württemberg, Hessen and Rhineland-Palatinate. The first vehicles will be deployed in early 2021.
