The SD-100 and SD-160 are light-rail vehicles manufactured by Siemens. The SD-100 uses motors that run on direct-current electricity while the SD-160 model features newer motors that run using alternating current. Both models are suited for loading at street level and high-platform level. The two models of car are in use in San Diego (SD-100), Salt Lake City (both models), Denver (both models) and Calgary (SD-160); Edmonton has also recently placed an order for SD-160s
Regarding its predecessor, the Siemens-Duewag U2, its driver's cabin is significantly larger, but the length in total is still slightly below those "magic" 25 metres, which times three equal the maximum length of a German streetcar consist.
