Östgötatrafiken already owns five of the 160km/h four-car sets, which were delivered in 2010 for use on Norrköping – Linköping – Mjölby – Tranås/Motola regional services, which are operated for Östgötatrafiken by DB Regio.

The 74.3m-long trains seat up to 234 passengers and have an 89% low-floor section, with an entrance height of 610mm.

Alstom will deliver the additional trains in early 2015, displacing X14 emus built in the 1990s.

The order will take the total number of Coradia Nordic regional and suburban emus sold in Sweden to 244, with other operators including Greater Stockholm Local Transport (SL), Skånetrafiken and Västtrafik.
