Host Robert Llewellyn of the Fully Charged Show visited Vivarail earlier this year to talk about their market-leading battery train.
Robert Llewellyn: This is a battery powered train. This is a train that doesn’t have electricity coming off the lines. It doesn’t have an engine – (it’s) pure battery powered.
Alice Gillman, Sales & Marketing, Vivarail: We set up a few years ago to start building modular trains and our aim is to provide trains to the industry using which ever power source suited them best. And the way things have developed, it’s our battery train that is now generating the most interest. This is the prototype that we are rushing through to production to be able to put on the main line.
