Kiev Metro has received the first 10 of the 50 cars of the Russian company "Vagonmash" that are purchased on credit of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
Total "Vagonmash" Kiev has to put 50 cars for a total of approximately 39.6 million euros. Now five cars already in operation, and another five in the adjustment stage.
Cost-acquired cars — when accelerating, they consume 30-40% less energy than others. All 50 cars have to go to Kiev by the end of 2013.
