What Is The Battery Size On A Tri-Mode Stadler Flirt?

The power-pack in the middle of a Tri-Mode Stadler Flirt, would appear to have four slots, each of which could take.

  • A V8 16-litre Deutz diesel that can produce 478 kW and weighs 1.3 tonnes.
  • A battery of about 120 kWh, which would probably weigh about 1.2 tonnes.

Would future versions of these trains accept a hydrogen fuel cell?

Note that, I estimated the battery size, by using typical battery energy densities for a battery of similar weight and physical size to the diesel engine.
