What is the difference between an Urbos3 and Urbos 100?

Ever since the first CAF built Urbos 100 tram arrived on the West Midlands Metro (9th June 2021 in case you’re wondering was the date) there has been a question on many people’s lips – what is the difference between these trams and the older Urbos3s? Well, wonder no more as regular British Trams Online contributor Michael Morton (who has his own YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/@podbabatransport7515) has detailed the differences between the two as an easy guide to anyone who wants to easily identify which class of tram it is.

The below images show what the main differences are. If you know of any other differences or think there should be any corrections to this please let us know by commenting below.
