Russia's new cutting-edge tramcar, the R-1 (Russia One), was given its ceremonial public launch at the INNOPROM-2014 Industrial Show in Ekaterinburg on 9th July.
Behind its gleaming looks and advanced technology is the Urals Wagon-Building Plant – who created the R1 prototype at the Urals Transport Engineering Plant (UralTransMash), uniting sturdy proven Russian transport technology with sleek modern lines and functionality. Against the background of a renaissance of eco-friendly tram travel in modern cities, the design team has seized the initiative – to produce the last word in transport technology for a new era. The developers at UralTransMash factored in current urban mass-transportation trends to design a vehicle that will remain ahead of the game for at least 10-15 years, even given the fast-moving demand for top-level city transport infrastructure.
The Russia One tramcar symbolizes a new standard of living in urban environments. Its internal configuration is flexible, and can be adapted according to specific routes and urban conditions. Built from the latest composite materials, the R-1 needs little maintenance to ensure its reliability and good looks. The optimized set-up of the R-1 should lessen traffic and cut road-jams in city-centre areas.
The exterior styling of the R-1 was created by Alexei Maslo, Chief Designer at OKB-Atom, and lead personnel from the company will be overseeing every step of the production – making sure that production models don't differ from the designer's blueprint by more than 10% overall. That’s an almost insignificant factor against a world background, in which superb designs are frequently compromised at a technical level when they go into commercial production.
“On July 10th, within the context of the Innoprom Trade Fair in Ekaterinburg, we'll be signing the contract that will usher in a Joint Venture for production of the R-1 in Russia” said the General Director of UralTransMash.
