The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette.

This is the introductory paragraph.

The Land of Baden-Württemberg’s rolling stock body SFBW has ordered 20 battery-equipped Mireo Plus B electric multiple-units from Siemens Mobility, which will then be responsible for their availability over a 29½-year operating life.

The Siemens Mireo Plus B Battery EMUs appear to have the following specification.

  • Ability to use overhead electrification.
  • Ability to use battery power for a range of eighty kilometres.
  • Two underfloor lithium-ion battery packs.
  • Batteries handle regenerative braking.
  • 160 kph operating speed.

Delivery is by December 2023.
