In 2008 KONČAR introduced the low-floor tram manufactured for the City of Zagreb, followed by the low-floor train in 2010 and the diesel-electric train in 2016. This September KONČAR has again participated in the leading international trade fair for transport technology in Berlin and rolled out another flagship project in the successful series of new solutions. More precisely, KONČAR has revealed the TMK 2300 LT low-floor tram developed and manufactured with proprietary R&D, expertise, tools and tech solutions, for Liepājas Tramvajs in Latvia. This is the thirteenth vehicle in the series of 14 low-floor trams that KONČAR will deliver within the agreement. Latvia has secured as much as 80% of the financing from the EU Comprehensive Reconstruction of Tram Route and Adjacent Territory programme and the partnership confirms the relevance and the reliability of KONČAR’s rail solutions.

We are proud that we can present our low-floor electric tram, developed and manufactured for a valuable European customer, in this marketplace of opportunities. Our long-term superb and successful cooperation with the City of Zagreb public transit operator has already confirmed that we have the vision, the expertise and the tools necessary to lead green and sustainable mobility initiatives.
