S-Bahn Berlin GmbH has entered into a framework agreement with a consortium comprising Stadler Pankow GmbH and Siemens for up to 1,380 vehicles. The contract begins with an order of 106 trains.

The delivery will take place between 2020 to 2023. The order is for 85 four-section and 21 two-section trains which will run on the Ringbahn lines (S 41 and S 42) and Berlin’s southeastern feeder lines S8, S36 and S47. These lines make up around a third of the Berlin S-Bahn network.

Ulf Braker, Member of the Group Executive Board of Stadler Pankow GmbH said:

“The first ten vehicles will be pre-production and test vehicles. They will undergo extensive tests before entering regular passenger service – which will enable us to incorporate possible findings from operations in Berlin in the series.”

The vehicles will be constructed at Stadler Pankow’s Berlin plant. The design concept and functionality features were presented as part of the contracting process. The interior of the cars will feature a walk-through aisle running the length of the train, as well as space for passengers, air conditioning and a cutting-edge passenger information system.
