Siemens Mobility has won an order for 75 Mireo trains for the ‘Central German S-Bahn Network 2025+’ (MDSB 2025+) project.

This order is worth around 500 million EUR. Specifically, 41 three-car Mireo trains were ordered by Die Länderbahn DLB, while 18 four-car Mireo trains and 16 two-car battery MireO Plus B trains were ordered by DB Regio AG.

Joint commissioning bodies for the overall MDSB 2025+ network are the Zweckverband für den Nahverkehrsraum Leipzig (ZVNL) in co-operation with the special-purpose Saxon transportation associations Verkehrsverbund Mittelsachsen (ZVMS) and Verkehrsverbund Vogtland (ZVV) as well as the Thuringian Ministry of Infrastructure and Agriculture (TMIL) and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Digital Affairs (MID) of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt.

Kai Emanuel, Chairman of the ZVNL Association, said:

“The ZNVL and its partners in the Central German S-Bahn network have high expectation for the use of these modern, environmentally friendly vehicles. We are hoping for a high level of acceptance, which will be reflected in rising passenger numbers.”

This is Siemens Mobility’s largest Mireo order to date.

The trains are to cover 10.6 million kilometres per year on the MDSB network and operate in and around Leipzig from 2026.

The two-car version will have 100 seats, the three-car version 150 seats and the four-car version 200 seats. The first-class sections will feature leather seats.

Passengers will benefit from free Wi-Fi, barrier-free access and travel and power sockets and USB ports for recharging devices on the go. The trains will also feature high-frequency window panes developed by Siemens Mobility to substantially improve mobile phone reception in the carriages.

To date, Siemens Mobility has sold 22 Mireo fleets, totalling more than 400 trains.
