The E Class trams were built by Bombardier Transportation in Melbourne, although some components were manufactured in Germany. Modern features include a low-floor throughout, swivelling trucks, improved safety design, and track condition reporting equipment. At over 33 metres in length, they are Melbourne’s longest trams. The E Class trams are allocated to Southbank and Preston depots. A further 30 similar trams are being delivered and are known as the E2 Class.
