These trains aim to offer a higher level of passenger comfort and are thus equipped with air conditioning, modern passenger information systems and security cameras.

Elmar Zeiler, Head of Commuter and Regional Trains at Siemens Mobility said:

“As a company with Berlin roots, we are particularly proud that we are contributing to a sustainable improvement in the travel experience and comfort for passengers on the Berlin S-Bahn. The trains of the new 483/484 series not only shine through their reliability, more seats and air conditioning, but also through their modern, energy-efficient drive technology.”

Alongside replacing older vehicles, the new trains have increased the capacity of the S-Bahn network to enable longer trains to operate on the Ringbahn lines S41/S42 and the S8 line.

All 106 vehicles were ordered in 2015 and have been gradually put into operation since the beginning of 2021.

Manya Schreiner Senator for Mobility, Transport, Climate Protection and the Environment said:

“The S-Bahn is an important link between Brandenburg and Berlin, especially for the many commuters. I am therefore pleased that the fleet is now complete. With significantly more space on board and many technical innovations, we are making climate-friendly public transport even more attractive. This is how traffic transition works.”
