The first of the four VinWay trams that are planned for 2017 has been built and tested, and it has passed a technical inspection. It is the second 16-meter VinWay tram to be produced in Vinnytsia.

The tram will begin operation on city routes within a few days, Vinnytsia’s Mayor Serhii Morhunov said.

"Like the first such tram, the engine management system is placed on top of the tram and not the bottom. The Czech-produced system allows reduction of power consumption by about one-third. The pantograph, like the ones in all low-floor VinWay trams, rises and falls automatically and not manually. The innovations include a new door-opening system with modern reducers," the mayor said.

As the CFTS portal reported earlier, the first VinWay tram was rolled out on 19 December 2016.
