On July 21st Hitachi hosted a private viewing in London for the unveiling of the AT100 & AT200 mock ups.
The AT100 was designed to meet the needs of metro operational conditions and requirements outlined by Hitachi. The design meets the demands of an early morning rush, whilst providing passengers with clear information and a range of comfortable seating.
The design hosts a range of features such as:
- Sliding doors with integrated LED light units indicating the opening side to reduce ingress and egress speed.
- Under seat LED lighting encouraging passengers to store their luggage underneath their seats.
- A unique central perch offering a comfortable space for passengers and providing elegant grab handles.
and many more…
The AT200 was designed to meet a wide spectrum of requirements for regional or outer suburban commuters outlined by Hitachi. Focusing on consumer needs and integrating the latest technology into the vehicle, the AT200 has everything the modern day passenger would require.
Also looking at the demands of an operator, modularity and functionality was a key issue to address. By utilising cantilever t-slot mounted units throughout the vehicle, operators are presented with the opportunity to manipulate the interior to meet their demands.
“The AT200, a highly standardised yet flexible design that improves the travelling experience for tomorrow’s commuters.” Andy Barr Chief operating officer at Hitachi Rail Europe.
