The six-car EMUs, which will be based on Alstom’s Coradia Polyvalent platform, will seat 355 passengers and feature an “inter-city” style interior.

Bourgogne-Franche-Comté has already ordered 24 Régiolis sets, 18 of which have been delivered.

The additional trains for Bourgogne-Franche-Comté will be the first Régiolis sets to comply with the European Technical Specification for Interoperability for Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM TSI).

Alstom has received orders for 328 Coradia Polyvalent trains since October 2009, including Régiolis sets for nine French regions, 61 Coradia Liner trains for inter-city services in France, 17 inter-city trains for Algerian National Railways (SNTF) and 15 suburban trains for the Dakar TER project in Senegal.

The Régiolis fleet has already covered more than 50 million kilometres in commercial operation.
