Siemens Mobility has presented its new Mireo Smart train, which enables operators to quickly boost their capacity and is claimed to ensure profitable operation due to low maintenance costs and a high degree of reliability.

Siemens Mobility rolling stock CEO Albrecht Neumann said: “The Mireo offers transport operators the opportunity to respond flexibly to changing capacity requirements and to quickly expand their fleets with a standardised product with short delivery times.

“Our customers benefit from an attractive price, great reliability and optional service packages.”

This new three-car trainset is claimed to reduce the time between ordering and starting service to up to 18 months.

Siemens Mobility claimed that the dependable components, tests before delivery, and a degree of standardisation allows trains to run right from day one, which makes Mireo Smart a feasible alternative to fleet modernisation.

Besides spare parts and maintenance packages, service contracts can be purchased with the trains.

The three-car Mireo Smart train features 214 seats, offers 21 spaces for parking bicycles, two areas for wheelchairs, and train-trackside communication.

Based on the Mireo platform, the Mireo Smart also offers air-conditioning, internet service, passenger information displays, large TFT monitors at the entry areas, and security surveillance.

The first Mireo trains have been in passenger service on the Rhine Valley network since June.
