Designed for driverless operation, the vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art Linear Induction Motor (LIM) propulsion technology which allows for operation on tighter curves, with less noise and greatly reduced wheel and track wear. Low energy consumption is achieved thanks to the combination of lightweight aluminium carshells and LIM propulsion system and in addition, highly effective regenerative braking enables the reuse of energy released during braking.

All INNOVIA Metro 300 cars are equipped with onboard camera systems, infotainment LCD screens and dynamic route maps to provide accurate travel information. The four-car trains have wide aisles and walk-through gangways which allow passengers to move freely throughout the train.
