That looks very similar to the new trams in Melbourne.

Same standard Flexity design as Melbourne E class and Adelaide/Frankfurt. But I don't know whether this one is 100% low floor (like Melbourne) or part high floor (like Adelaide/Frankfurt)?

Well, to elaborate, Bombardier's tram venture comes from its takeover of German tram manufacturers over the last couple of decades and recruitment of other German tram expertise. The company may be Canadian but this aspect of its operation is quite European. Do Canadians know how to make trams? They'll get a chance to learn at Thunder Bay (for Toronto) when Germans come over and tell them how to put them together.
