Abellio orders Bombardier Talent 2 EMUs


    Abellio has awarded Bombardier a €215 million contract to deliver 43 Talent 2 electric multiple units (EMU) for Stuttgart’s regional rail network.

    The new trains will begin to enter service in Baden-Württemberg’s Neckar Valley region from June 2019. All of the new units will be delivered by June 2020.

    Abellio chief executive Stephan Krenz said: “Abellio has already established a long-standing successful collaboration with Bombardier, which we will now continue in the Neckar Valley region network.

    “We consider the company a reliable partner and together with them we will happily provide our passengers with a comfortable and safe travel experience on the way to their destination.”

    Abellio Rail Südwest GmbH has procured 24 three-car and 16 five-car trains. Bombardier says the modular design of the trains will allow them to be easily configured for commuter or regional transport.
