Deutsche Bahn Unveils Interior Designs of Future ICE Fleet

Deutsche Bahn has unveiled new interior designs for its future ICE fleet, which will be rolled out from the end of 2023.

Deutsche Bahn’s future high-speed ICE (InterCity Express) trains will feature redesigned seats and contemporary equipment. Passengers will be able to experience the new design on the new ICE 3neo in December 2023. The equipment will then be installed in all of Deutsche Bahn’s newly procured long-distance trains.

Deutsche Bahn CEO Richard Lutz unveiled the new design model at a premiere in Berlin on 18 May 2022
DB CEO Richard Lutz said:

“Travel, work, relax – and feel as comfortable at 300 km/h as in your own living room: the new design is tailored to the needs of our passengers of modern travel comfort, significantly more individuality and genuine sustainability. We are sure that we will get even more people excited about climate-friendly rail and that the climate will benefit as well.”

The seats have been designed as a personal place of retreat, with a harmonious design and modern materials

The new seats have been designed with modern materials such as wood decor and covers made of high-quality fabric with 85 percent wool. Grey tones are planned for the seat covers in 1st class, blue tones for the seats in 2nd class, and burgundy for those in the on-board restaurant. Elements such as a tablet holder and coat hooks in each backrest also enhance the passenger experience.

DB Long-Distance Manager Michael Peterson:

“We always focus on people and their needs on the journey. When developing the new design, we attach great importance to privacy, the design of personal space and a completely new color and material concept.”

In addition to a pleasing design, the new ICE trains will feature durable, hard-wearing materials that will accommodate repeated use from a high volume of passengers.
