19 regional trains to SNCF

Bombardier Transport, a world leader in the rail technology sector, has received a firm order for 19 Regio 2N, double deck vehicles (114 cars) from the French National Railway Company (SNCF) on behalf of the Region Auvergne-Rhône Alpes. This additional order amounts to 176 million euro ($193 million US), including price escalations based on best faith assessment of assumptions, and is part of the contract signed with SNCF in 2010 which provides for the manufacture of up to 860 trains for the French Regions.

These new trains will begin operating on the Lyon - Mâcon and Lyon - Valence lines in the summer of 2023. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is continuing to consolidate its Regio 2N fleet, which will comprise 59 Regio 2N.

The new 83-meter trainsets will offer a capacity of 385 seats, and can be operated in multiple units with the 40 Regio 2N fleet already operating in the Region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. The trains will be equipped with WIFI, a video surveillance system, six bicycle slots and will meet all European interoperability and accessibility requirements.
