• The 40th Flexity tram, locally called M33, enters service in Gothenburg in November;
• The state-of-the-art Flexity light rail vehicles generates increased capacity and efficiency on Sweden’s largest light rail network.

The first Flexity vehicle was delivered in 2019 and the fleet is operating on Sweden’s largest tram network, spanning over 160 km of tracks. It has already run more than 4.5 million kilometres in operation.

Since the delivery of the first tram, Flexity has since become a part of Gothenburg’s iconic cityscape.

The design meets as Gothenburg's requirements for environmentally friendly public transport. With the high-capacity light rail vehicles, the public transportation network of the city can run more smoothly and efficiently.

“We are delighted and proud to see the final delivery of the Flexity M33 tram, serving the local population through a modern, reliable light rail fleet with increased comfort for passengers”, says Maria Signal Martebo, MD Alstom in Sweden.

The light rail vehicles, built with consortium partner Kiepe-Electric, replace a part of the current fleet and provide high-capacity transportation to accommodate the rapidly growing population in Gothenburg and the surrounding region. The trams were built at the Alstom site in Bautzen, Germany. At the end of October, the final delivery of the base order underwent thorough testing and inspection before being transported to Sweden. After the final commissioning and inspection, the 40th vehicle has now been delivered to the customer ready to start operating in traffic.
