T3R.P cars are other options for upgrading T3 cars, complete with electric traction equipment by CEGELEC, TV Progress - CDC100 type B. The cars were initially equipped with an analog controller (T3R.P_A) of the pulse converter and later replaced by digital one (T3R.P_D). In the area of the original contactor frames and accelerator two traction containers are located with controllers.

The first car with the TV Progres (Alstom) equipment with IGBT transistors in 2000 was the car 6554. Apart from equipping the car was not restored and served to validate the properties of new elements. In 2002, the new equipment of TV Europulse was installed within the trial operation and remained in operation until 2005, when the car was upgraded to a serial car T3R.P 8300.

In 2000, trams of T3 type began to be upgraded to T3R.P initially in Pars nova Šumperk (cars 8211-8245) and then in the central workshops (other reg. no.). They are equipped with upholstered seats, static converters with motor-ventilators, recovery system, anti-slip / skid protection, new drive of doors, electric sandblasts, non-slip flooring and the information system.

With some T3 trams their upgrade was not costly effective because of poor technical condition of the body. Thus a new car body VarCB3 was developed and the type with this body was designated as T3R.PV. Therefore, it is actually a new tram but the cars are registered as upgraded T3 trams. .
