DB Regiochef Jörg Sandvoss said, with the first battery movement in customer operation, you now go in regional traffic the next big step on the way to an emission-free train in Germany. And Alstom Manager Müslüm Yakisan explained alternative drives are the future of mobility. ONLY TO SERVICE

The trial operation in Baden-Württemberg starts next Monday. Workdays the train will drive with passengers on the Stuttgart - Horb route. In Bavaria, it starts on February 5th. There is on Saturdays and Sundays the Line Pleinfeld - Gunzenhausen in the Franconian Seenland serves how both companies further announced. While in Baden-Württemberg the charge during the current ride successes, in Bavaria can only be charged to the electrified target and starting stations, as the route is not electrified in between.

Alstom developed the train since 2016. Sandvoss said that test should be collected with the test practice experiences to control these future technologies in operation and maintenance. In Germany, a total of 450 lines are so far exclusively with dieselies.
