North America’s 100% Low-Floor Streetcar
With the introduction of ameriTRAM™, KINKISHARYO was the first light rail manufacturer to introduce North America to a 100% low-floor, electro-hybrid, zero-emission streetcar powered by either overhead electric catenary or on-board lithium-ion batteries.
Electro-Hybrid Li-ion Battery Power Propulsion Technology
Through unique e-Brid™ technology, ameriTRAM™ is propelled by overhead catenary or on-board lithium-ion batteries. e-Brid™ charges the batteries while running on catenary power; and, when in battery mode, uses electricity stored from regenerative braking.
