They will replace the Mirage trams made in the 60s and 70s, which Vinnytsia received earlier as part of the Zurich Trams for Vinnytsia project, which has been going on for 15 years.

Vinnytsia transport operators have begun adapting the received trams to Ukrainian requirements and will start running in the summer.
