Île-de-France Mobilités, the Société du Grand Paris and Alstom have unveiled the final designs for Paris’ future line 18 metro trains.

The three-car trains will each be 47-metres-long and will carry up to 350 passengers.

Their interiors have been designed to improve capacity, fluidity and comfort, offering level flooring, wide doors and spacious corridors.

They also feature modern passenger amenities such as Wi-Fi, USB sockets and dynamic information screens, as well as efficient ventilation, air conditioning and heating systems.

In addition, the train’s lighting follows the circadian rhythm and varies according to the time of day to help improve travellers’ wellbeing.
