The Avenio M Tram From Siemens Has Won an Award

A tram which harmonises with the city landscape while enhancing passenger experience has scooped a prestigious Red Dot Award.

The Siemens Avenio M tram was commended for its sleek appearance, open interior and potential to adapt to various urban environments.

Designed for use in Ulm, Germany, which has steep grades, it consists of five modules, which together create an open and bright interior.

Seats and handrails have been designed to ergonomic criteria and there is convenient access for passengers, with large areas for wheelchairs.

The “Siemens Tram Assistant” collision warning system helps the driver avoid accidents, while electro-dynamic brakes provide smooth braking.

Further safety is ensured by four independent brake systems enhanced by a special braking assistance system.

These allow the vehicle to run safely on the long slopes in Ulm and provide a fallback in the event of power supply failure.
