Hitachi Rail’s battery-powered tram technology offers the major benefit of requiring no electrified infrastructure.

Our trams can operate on sections of routes with no overhead wires, such as historic city centres, and offer range increase of up to 5km.

It’s flexible too. The new technology is based on an Onboard Energy Storage System (OBESS), with scalable battery capacity. It can be installed directly on the roof of existing trams - saving on costs all while ensuring better environmental performance for more sustainable cities.
