Electricor dual-mode (electric and thermal), equipped withERTMS technology and consistent with European standards, the Coradia Liner can run on all conventional rail networks. It can reach speeds of200 km/hand accommodate up to 900 passengers.
Particularly suitable for longer trips, it offersunprecedented comfortwith its reclining seats equipped with electrical sockets and reading lights, and its service areas childrens play area, restaurant/bar & hospitality areas. Particular attention has been paid to acoustic comfort. To improve the fluidity of movement on-board, the hospitality and travel areas are spacious, with wide corridors.
Also designed for operators, the Coradia Liner has a distributed traction system, over the entire train, providing outstanding acceleration and braking, allowing greater coverage of the national territory without increasing travel time. Being lighter, its consumption is30% lessthan that of the current Corail and has becomethe national and European eco-mobility train. Its architecture makes foreasy maintenance.
The Coradia Liner V200 design is based on the modularCoradia trains, with the ensuing benefits of over 30 years of operational experience in Europe: more than 3,000 Coradia are currently operating and have travelled more than 4 billion km in Germany (Coradia Lint and Continental), Denmark, Spain, France (Coradia Polyvalent and Coradia Duplex ZTER – 200Km/h), Italy (Coradia Meridian), Luxembourg (Coradia Duplex, the Netherlands (Coradia Lint), Portugal (Tagus Coradia DD) and Sweden (Coradia Duplex X40 – 200km/h).
