Vivarail – world leader in battery trains and systems

Designers and manufacturers of the UK’s only battery and battery hybrid trains, able to provide unlimited emission - free travel off the wires


Future technology today

Net zero battery trains

Alternatively powered metro, commuter and regional services for cleaner, quieter cities. Vivarail Fast Charge battery-electric trains automatically recharge using its battery bank infrastructure which store off-peak power from renewable sources.

Seamless, recharging gives the Class 230 unlimited range.

It is a technology which can also repower diesel trains and extend the range of electric trains beyond the wires.

Two, three or four car trains can be recharged from power banks, located at stations and depots.

The trains will only draw power when required which maintains battery life and gives the train almost unlimited range. With three batteries on each car the train is a perfect combination of weight and power.
