Avenio: A new tram for Munich

The first of eight new trams for Munich leaves the production plant in Vienna. The interior is bright and generously apportioned. Air conditioners ensure pleasant temperatures inside, regardless of the weather outside. The tram accommodates up to 216 passengers. There are 69 ergonomically formed seats and also a sufficient number of hand grips for a firm hold. The passengers benefit from the information and entertainment provided by large monitors and the convenience of onboard ticket vending machines. The electrical equipment is arranged in roof-mounted containers to create more space in the passenger area and to make it easier to clean the floor.

Munich and Siemens present the first Avenio tram

The first of eight new Siemens Avenio trams was presented to the general public in Munich on November 4, 2013. The tram for the Munich Transport Company (Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft, MVG) will have the customer type designation T1. The Munich public services company (Stadtwerke München, SWM) ordered the trams for operation on the local MVG lines in order to modernize and complement the existing vehicle fleet. There were only 15 months between the award of the contract at the end of September 2012 and the scheduled date of initial operation. The goal of the accelerated procurement and manufacturing process was to respond to the strongly increasing demand for the tram in Munich as quickly as possible.

The Avenio is the new Siemens tram generation which will be in revenue service in Munich for the first time anywhere in the world.
