New urban trains - Rio de Janeiro city/Brazil (pictures)

Hi everybody! These are the pictures and information about the new urban trains for Rio de Janeiro city - Brazil

This is my first project for rail industry. I am a product designer and my contribution to this project was the interior equipment´s design and the frontal mask. Sorry about my english if you find grammar errors.

These trains were manufactured by ROTEM (structural and mechanics) and TOSHIBA (electric part)
Investment: US$ 100 million
Capacity of each train: 1,300 passengers (228 seated, in individual seats, and 1,072, standing)
Total: 20 trains

Design Concepts
Since the beginning, the idea was to “humanize” the equipment, creating an easy ambient for the passenger´s circulation. The criteria that had defined the design had been guided to create a innovative environment in relation to the old trains and to awake in the end user a feeling of valuation. The concept “transport people, leading the human life through the circulation system of the city” was constructed on the basis of the organic circulation system, in analogy to the transport of passengers.

The new trains had been idealized so that the passengers felt in an environment designed for them and not only for the rail. The shape of the frontal mask was conceived in accordance with the restrictions imposed by the manufacturer of the trains, in agreement with original engineering. The seats had been designed in accordance with the internal disposal, generating a line with 3 models of seats.

It must be interesting to get an opportunity to design a train interior. The result is nice!

It's probably not in your responsibility but I wonder why the side windows are so relatively small...

It was a very challenging work, considering that a lot of people will use the trains for a very long period! This kind of project is a “dream” for every designer. I agree with you, I also found the windows small but I was not allowed to modify this.

Great interior design! It looks very cheerful and modern. Is it a commuter train or metro?

If it is a commuter train, I don´t know, I´m not sure. But it´s not Metro. Rio´s metro has different trains.

The stainless steel-bodied 3kV dc trains were built at Alstom's Lapa plant with final assembly taking place at a new 32,000m2 facility in Deodoro in the state of Rio de Janeiro, which has been constructed on land provided by SuperVia.

The first trains entered service in February, two years earlier than scheduled in SuperVia's concession agreement, and the entire fleet will be operational by September 2014
