This sleek train concept, the latest from international design practice HASSELL, was inspired by the hard styling of the iconic 1960s Australian HK Monaro coupe. The A-HSV double-decker train also offers a modern, spacious interior fit with open commuter seating, private quarters for meetings, luxurious dining, & even a convenience store. Aside from being an aesthetic achievement, the A-HSV also presents an alternative low-carbon, safe mode of transport for travelers between the Australian capital & regional cities.
The real ambition behind designing the A-HSV was its response to Australia’s national debates on environmental, economical & social issues. The train aims to reduce the reliance on air & private vehicles, provide shorter travel times to regional cities under pressure from population growth, & reduce transport related congestion within cities.
