The low-floor METELITSA tram, which supports a set of anything from 2 to 7 cars, is available as a uni-direction or a bi-directional vehicle. The seating arrangement, the entrance doors and the interior design can be planned flexibly. It is designed with low floors throughout, which means that it comfortably meets the requirements of people with restricted mobility. The articulated bogie frame ensures even running and ride comfort. They absorb any uneven areas of track without any tension.

Stadler received its first order for METELITSA trams from the Transport Concession Company in St. Petersburg, Russia in August 2016.
