Yes.  To run that tram you need a TM-TR06 power chassis which is rated as good for R140 track. You need the body and the power chassis for an operating  model.

Thanks. I will probably order the model soon.

If you look at the Tomytec TM-TR06 box shown on Hobby Search, at the lower left corner is has the oval 'Super-Mini" logo. This means it can handle Tomix C103 "Super Mini" curves (103 mm). A "Mini" logo indicates a chassis can handle "Mini" C140 and C177 radius track. I am conservative and do not go below C140 on my layouts, since I run a number of different tram designs, coupled trams, etc. So Kato R150 should be no problem.

Thank you guys for your help. Reconsidering the order, but good to know in the future.

I have no experience with Micro Ace C Locomotive series, but if you want compact locomotives to run on a Mini Curve layout, you have Kato Pocket Line trains, Tomytec Railway Collection locomotives as well as the B-Train Shorties. There are other small locomotives and tractors by smaller companies but they will be more expensive.

All of Kato's Rhätische Bahn series (and the MDS-Modell sliding wall vans) will run on R150 curves. The old brown EMUs they offered a few years ago (KuMoHa 11/12 and so on) are also quite happy on them.

Just for reference, here is a video showing what runs on Tomix R103 track.
