The latest order will supplement the initial batch of 100 Régiolis
trains, comprising 60 dmus and 40 emus, ordered last year by SNCF for
eight French regions.
Coradia Polyvalent is a modular single-deck
train powered by permanent magnet motors which can have either an
electric or a hybrid traction system. The 160km/h train is dual-voltage
(25kV ac and 1.5kV dc) for operation in France, and can be equipped
with 15kV ac power equipment to allow operation into Germany and
Switzerland. The articulated low-floor train can be supplied in three
lengths (56m, 72m, or 110m), and configured for operation on suburban,
regional, or inter-city services.
