On 23 March 2020, Metrovagonmash handed over a new four-car underground train to Samarski metropoliten (Samara metro). The contract for two Model 81-717.6 end cars and two Model 81-714.6 intermediate cars was signed in October 2019.
The Model 81-717.6/714.6 trains, built since 2009, are the most advanced version of the 81-717/714 metro units produced at Mytishchi. Their end cars feature a spacious aerodynamic driver’s cab (enlarged by 30 % compared to previous versions) with an emergency ramp in the front part and a modern driver’s console.
Together with four recently delivered Model 81-717.6/714.6 cars, the fleet of Samarski metropoliten has a total of 50 Metrovagonmash-built cars.
