The 140km/h trains will have 125 seats and accommodate 135 standing passengers as well as have sufficient space for wheelchairs, bicycles and prams. The trains offer accessibility to passengers with reduced mobility due to barrier-free entrances and are equipped with air-conditioning, passenger information, and video surveillance systems.

Alstom will construct the vehicles at its Saltzgitter plant in Germany and the trains are expected to enter service in autumn 2017.
