For Lot 3 services, a further nine four-car and 10 six-car EMUs will be delivered, totalling 4.4 million vehicle km/year.

The vehicles in this lot will be fitted with an additional train security system (LZB) and be equipped for installation of the ETCS Level 2 system at a later date.

“Creating long-term partnerships in and for the region is an integral component of our company philosophy.”
