Kochi Metro’s Rolling Stock Design & New Logo Unveiled

The Kochi Metro’s finalized rolling stock design and logo have finally been unveiled! Back in July I had written that a logo was in the works (See: Kochi Metro gains momentum) and had been finalized by Tata Elxsi, the Kochi Metro’s customer experience consultant. Through a special event organized at the Cochin International Airport’s main conference, the Chief Minister of Kerala, Mr. Oomman Chandy made both the rolling stock design and logo public:

The Rolling Stock is being manufactured by Alstom India after they had won the bid to supply 25 train-sets each consisting of 3 cars in August 2014 quoting a price of Rs 633 crore. The 2.9m-wide 65m-long trains can accommodate up to 975 passengers with 140 of them seated. All 75 coaches are currently being assembled at Alstom’s Sri City plant in Andhra Pradesh – See: [Pics] Kochi Metro’s train shell unveiled! . Mr. Chandy also announced that the first coach is expected to reach Kochi in less than 3 months following which it will start trial runs when the tracks and systems are ready.
