Product development is continuous activity of KONČAR – Electric Vehicles. Application of our own research and development potentials, joined by partnership and synergy, creates new production solutions based on knowledge.

We had proven that only those companies which are able to start a production based on research can survive in a very demanding market. The synergy of our human resources and technology resulted in development of a new product, LOW FLOOR REGIONAL ELECTRIC MULTIPLE UNIT,
developed according to the valid european and international standards.

250 engineers, masters and doctors of science, about 200 high skilled workers and many suppliers and cooperates of various professions have participated in the research and development of EMU

The basic characteristics:
  • total length 75 m
  • floor height 600 mm
  • seating places 20 /144
  • standing places 250
  • maximal speed 160 km/h
  • coupling up to 3 trains
  • vacuum toilettes 2

Technical and technological solutions:
  • asynchronous drive with vector regulation
  • µP systems for control and communication
  • Končar' own programming support
  • diagnostic and monitoring systems
  • modularity (Hardware / Software)

Low-floor regional electric multiple unit is the "knowledge product" of intellectual capital and technology, which creates a new value on the market and a platform for further growth and affirmation of the

Company KONČAR all over the world.

    Koliko mi je poznato taj je vlak bio predstavljen u Rujnu ove godine. Kako to da je na jednoj slici snijeg?
    Far as I know this train was demonstrated in the September this year. Where did you get a snow for the above picture?
