The initial order is for 286 vehicles, valuing approximately two billion Swiss francs (1.85bn euros | 2.15bn USD). The contract is to be concluded after the 20-day objection period has expired.

 The vehicles will be manufactured entirely in Bussnang, with a share of around 75 percent of value added for Switzerland.

Stadler’s FLIRT model is a single-decker multiple unit for local and long-distance services. Taking into account the framework agreement for SBB, Stadler has now sold its best-selling vehicle over 2,500 times in 20 countries – from the Arctic Circle to Africa.

Peter Spuhler, Stadler’s Executive Chairman of the Board, said:

“We're proud that our proven FLIRT concept has once again achieved international success. We would like to thank SBB for the trust they have placed in us.”
