RVLR HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2023
Merry Christmas from the Revolution VLR team!
Looking back on 2023, it has been a huge year for Revolution VLR, and we are immensely proud of everything that the team has achieved. We have continued a full programme of stakeholder events for the Demonstrator vehicle in Ironbridge, attended a variety of Light Rail Events across the UK and Europe and won a prestigious RIA RISE Award.
Without a doubt, our most exciting news is the recent announcement that Eversholt Rail and Transport Design International (TDI) have signed contracts to build three new battery-only Revolution VLR Vehicles. We are delighted to continue working together on this next phase of the RVLR programme and we look forward to next year as we work to achieve this next step towards full series production.
Take a look at some of our 2023 highlights.
THREE NEW BATTERY-ONLY REVOLUTION VERY LIGHT RAIL VEHICLES
- Eversholt Rail is funding three brand-new Revolution Very Light Rail vehicles for passenger trials in the UK.
- TDI will manufacture the vehicles in the UK with work commencing in 2024.
- These new RVLR vehicles have battery-only propulsion, providing zero-emissions operation.
IRONBRIDGE RVLR DEMONSTRATOR EVENTS
RVLR events have continued at Ironbridge throughout 2023 with increasing attention both from UK and international rail groups. Since opening in 2021, we have hosted over 450 stakeholders at our purpose-built whole-system demonstration facility in Ironbridge.
WINNER OF THE RIA RISE INNOVATION AWARD 2023
We were delighted to be recognised for our lightweighting technology and ground-breaking vehicle at this year’s RIA RISE Awards. Judges applauded RVLR for its ‘innovation in providing a straightforward solution to a large problem of reducing the cost of rail’.
