Swimo Takes to the Rails

The Swimo light rail vehicle (LRV) is a new design from Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Swimo's low-floor configuration was developed for height difference minimization between vehicle floors and platforms. Among other benefits, its onboard battery system supplements electric power, widening distances between substations and potentially cutting costs. To ensure that the cabin floor is flat, bogies are located under the driving cab. Inserts detail Swimo technical specifications and onboard batteries.
