The Variotram was introduced with the opening of the first section of the Inner West Light Rail in 1997 in Sydney, Australia. Seven German-designed vehicles were manufactured by Adtranz in Melbourne. The Variotram design is modular and was extended for the Sydney system. The capacity of the vehicles was 217 passengers, of which 74 were seated. They were numbered 2101–2107, continuing the Sydney trams sequence that finished at 2087 with the last Sydney R1-Class Tram. In October 2018, 2107 was placed in the custody of the Sydney Tramway Museum at Loftus. All others trams were scrapped.
