Elektozavodska (Ukrainian: Електрозаводська; Russian: Элекрозаводская, Elektrozavodskaya) is a station of the Kryvyi Rih Metrotram.

In honour of the city's 225th anniversary on May 27, 2000, Elektrozavodska was opened on an existing track between Industrialna and Zarichna stations. The station is a subterranean, shallow level construction with two side platforms. A central wall with ten circular archways bisects the section, and supports the roofs. Grey colour tones are employed along with ceramic tiles arranged in a brickwork pattern on the walls. The dark shade make the station appear particularly gloomy and the darkest in the small system, as most of the lighting is switched off to conserve electricity (ironic as the station's name translates as electricity-factory).

From the middle of the station are two staircases leading to a large surface vestibule (the only underground station in Ukraine with such arrangement). Nevertheless, it does receive a lot of passenger traffic as a lot of bus and marshrutka routes terminate there.
