The IDA designed CRRC Next Generation Subway Car concept has won the MTA Genius Transit Challenge award in New York.
IDA developed the interior for CRRC’s award submission in 2016 from a clean sheet of paper. The aim was to create an innovative interior design that supported the array technological innovations being put into the cars. The concept demonstrates both latest and future thinking with see-through touch information displays in the windows, colour changing LED lighting, and the vehicle body constructed with carbon fibre to make significant weight savings.
CRRC recently showed a full scale mock-up of its Next Generation Subway car at the Changchun Technology Fair in China.
