The seven-car trains will be used on inter-running services on the Tobu Skytree Line and the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line alongside Tokyo Metro’s fleet of 13000 series trains, which are currently being delivered by Kinki Sharyo. The two fleets share common specifications for major equipment and the car bodies.
The 1.5kV dc overhead 1067mm-gauge trains are equipped with permanent magnet synchronous motors and VVVF inverter control.
The internal layout is also standardised. The trains have 460mm-wide seats, compared with 450mm on Tobu series 20000 trains and 430mm on Tokyo Metro’s series 03 trains.
Passenger information displays with 17in LCD screens are installed above the doors and the trains are equipped with LED lighting.
