THE ENERGY-SAVING ELECTRIC CAR

DER STROMSPARENDE TRIEBWAGEN

The three-phase electronic control motor is replacing the d.c. motor used for more than a century for suburban traffic. It has been tested since 1975 with trains in Nurnberg and since 1978 on the Vienna metro. The advantages of this motor are energy savings (up to 25%), smooth running, regenerative braking, less wear and easier maintenance because there are no collectors or carbon brushes.
