Simply More Comfortable.  

The best features of Warsaw's low-floor tram

Voith Components make a significant contribution to the driving comfort and the safety.

Warsaw has about three and a half million inhabitants. The metropolis also has one metro system, 219 bus routes and 27 tram lines. The latter criss-cross the city on a 121-kilometer network and connect the center with the agglomeration.  More and more passengers step into one of the PESA 120Na SWING vehicles. And now with even more comfort because of the new low-floor design.


The state-of-the-art low-floor articulated trams are successively replacing the older 105 Na und 13N series. The advantage over the predecessor model: not a step too many. Not at the doors, the gangways or the spaces above the gear units. Ideal for mothers with prams, older or disabled passengers.     


A fact that has also been made possible by the Voith gear units installed vertically to the wheels and thus allowing deep-set wheelset shafts. As a result, nobody is likely to stumble - and everybody gets to the city more comfortably. A total of 186 trains were ordered. The last ones are being delivered over the following months.  

Front End Systems

Voith offers complete front end modules with automatic front covers. They are adapted to specific aerodynamic properties and vehicle optics and can be easily installed and, when required, exchanged. This makes them safe, reliable and energy-efficient.


Scharfenberg couplers are among the world's leading coupler systems. The automatic and semi-automatic couplers are used all over the world in numerous light rail vehicles, metros, railcars and high-speed trains.

Cooling Systems

Voith offers a broad spectrum of innovative, high-performance and low-maintenance cooling systems for railcars, high-speed trains and locomotives. Depending on the vehicle design, they can be mounted laterally, on the roof or underfloor.
