as People mover
The 100% electric Trens Solar Train carries 60 passengers comfortably while driving on existing streets, regardless of the street surfaces. No road is too narrow, not a curve is too sharp and no slope is too steep.
The Trens Solar Train provides comfortable passenger transport in historic city centres, on boulevards, or on routes to park-and-ride (P+R) facilities on the outskirts of inner cities, on the premises of nature and event parks and Business Centres.
Passengers and pedestrians are instantly aware of the environmental-friendly character of the Trens Solar Train: No noise, no air pollution.

as city distribution vehicle
In addition the Trens Solar Train is ideally suited for city distribution: Large loads can be transported within a compact urban environment. From now on catering organizations and shops in inner cities, and even consumers in residential areas, are served by means of our electric vehicles (with no noise). The Solar Train actively contributes to a clean environment and is characterized by remarkably low operating costs.

Solar system Range expanded up to 8 km per hour sunlight

The canopies of the tow tractor and passenger wagons of the Solar Train are all equipped with high-efficiency monocrystalline solar cells in environmentally friendly polymer-based solar panels.
In collaboration with a Dutch producer, these solar panels are designed to bring up 4000Wp per hour on a sunny day, which expands the driving range up to 8 km per hour sunlight.
The solar cells are laminated between two high-quality polymer panels. Compared to the glass solar panels, a weight reduction of as much as 60% is achieved.

Batteries Energy for 300 km

The energy pack is capable to deal with instant large and long-term energy flows, in the circumstances of uphill movements as well as when driving downhill; in the latter case to regenerate energy. The high demands regarding safety, reliability, durability and flexibility led our team to modern maintenance free Li-ion (LiFePO4) batteries with a high quality battery management system. Battery configuration based on customer-specific needs. Optional: up to 300 km driving range.

Powertrain Continuous traction for 20% slopes

The development of a power train especially designed for the Solar Train resulted in a continuous torque of 10000 Nm for a tow tractor. The powertrain is able to convey three wagons with a total of 90 passengers, either horizontally or bridging long steep slopes of up to 20%. By mounting a powerful electric motor and transmission in each wheel of the tractor, the traction is optimized and is very economical regarding energy consumption.

Comfort Air suspension and plenty of legroom

An air-sprung suspension and the special cabin construction result into spacious legroom and great comfort for passengers and driver. A level control allows the wagons to be accessible for passengers in wheelchairs while the wagons even allow standing passengers. The wagon-layout is flexible, one can choose: either a U-shaped formation, or 5 banks placed one after the other. The unique construction of the suspension results into completely flat floors in the wagons ensuring safe passageway. As the electric motors are mounted on the steerable wheels of the tow tractor, the drive shaft and differential are not needed.
