Following an initial order for 21 sets placed in 2015, Nuremberg Transport Company (VAG) exercised an option for an additional six trains in November 2018.

Siemens will deliver the new sets at a rate of three to four per month, with open access operator Railadventure providing rail transport for delivery to Nuremberg.

The first units are expected to enter regular service in the summer.
