Russian futuristic tram Russia One can go into a series

The futuristic concept of the Russia One (R1) tram, which for a number of reasons was not destined to go into the series, can be continued. About this agency RIA News told the director of the development company "Uraltransmash" Dmitry Semizorov.

When asked whether another similar prototype would be created in the future, the functionary answered in the affirmative. At the moment, the company is developing the serial production of new models of trams. And, as soon as the production process reaches a good pace, it will be possible to start developing the next high-tech concept, Semizorov emphasized.

It is worth noting that Russia One, which received the nickname “iPhone on Wheels,” was originally created as a conceptual model demonstrating the possibilities of using new of technologies in modern public transport. The form factor R1 and the technological solutions embedded in it did not allow the release of a futuristic composition on the streets. However, some solutions implemented in it, for example, such as the design and drive of doors and windows, are already used in modern tram models.

Recall that the prototype Russia One was developed by Uraltransmash (part of Rostec) in conjunction with Atom Design Bureau. The concept of the low-floor tram received a composite body and wagons equipped with: antibacterial handrails, air conditioning, HD surveillance cameras, Wi-Fi, as well as GPS and GLONASS navigation systems.

    Any sane person understands that, in its current form, the "reverse" shape of the cabin is simply 100% designed to "suck in" and crush an accidentally hit victim under a tram.

      Well, that’s right. So that the victim does not suffer in hospitals.

      There are still not enough blades to speed up the natural selection of traffic-violating pedestrians.
      Because the exposed palm cannot stop the loaded KAMAZ, and even more so, almost a train in the form of a tram.

    And all this is so necessary for every Russian in every city, and especially on the periphery?
    Or is it only for St. Petersburg and Moscow, as an element of window dressing - but can we do that too?
    It’s just ridiculous to read about WHAT is in the tram amid the fact that the fare also rises in price.
    It’s just that ordinary people simply can’t do without GPS / GLONASS, and especially without Wi-Fi (as they sang in the song).
    And about the handrails? Shine!
    Is it in the style of renovations from Sobyanin?
    In short, questions, questions ....

    They know how, if they want!
    Tales about "sucking under the tram" are only bikes that have nothing to do with reality.
    The carcasses into minced meat roll out human carcasses no worse.
