The vehicles will have several features such as a curved body shell for optimised space and low profile tunnels, full-width gangways and level boarding for accessibility. Each vehicle set can accommodate 340 passengers, with 80 of those seated.
These curved and highly accessible U-Bahn trains will be replacing the existing A3L71 fleet, which dates back to 1971-73.
