Bombardier Transportation has unveiled its high comfort OMNEO Premium train for intercity travel, at a top speed of 200km/h.
The design of the train was inspired by the French standards of luxury. The design is elegant and offers high quality interior design. The cars are designed as a spacious double-decker. With comfortable travel, wide reclining seats with individual arm-rests, tablet, footrest, reading light and electronic power supply.
The self-regulating air conditioning system and the low noise and vibration levels contribute to a quiet atmosphere ideally suited for intercity services. Focusing on passenger comfort, the architecture of the train provides extra-wide cars of 3 m width while storing the technical equipment on the roof to gain space and thus improve comfort in the passenger areas further.
With its wide doors, the train offers level access from the platforms of every major train station. This train is equipped with a dedicated space for people with disabilities and offers a universally accessible toilet and an access ramp so passengers in wheelchairs can travel in full autonomy.
With the OMNEO Premium product, Bombardier goes beyond high comfort transportation and offers a new travel experience in tune with contemporary lifestyle demands, said Jean Berg, President of Bombardier Transportation France. As the Regio 2N, the first trains of the OMNEO product platform, start operating, the OMNEO Premium train will be a step ahead in terms of delivery times and reliability. Also, maintenance and operations costs will benefit substantially from the platform model.
