The articulated trams equipped with low-floored section have 2 joints, 4 bogies (8 axels) and chopper control. The middle section increases accessibility to city transport and makes travel smoother for all passengers, as the floor of the section is nearly at the same level as the tram stop. Travelling is comfortable, as the tramcar has a heated floor and it moves smoothly. The compatibility of the new section with the original tramcar was also taken into account.

The middle section is 6.5 metres long and it has ten fixed seats and three foldable seats. The section can also accommodate two wheelchairs or two prams. There is also a brochure on the articulated tram equipped with a low-floor middle section.

In the 2000s, the tramcars were also comprehensively renovated, during which the tramcar technology and interiors were modernised and the whole steel frame sand-blasted and surface treated to look like new.
