The state of Baden-Württemberg has ordered three Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens Mobility. The battery-electric trains will ensure locally emission-free traffic on the new Hermann-Hesse-Bahn between Renningen and Calw from 2023
Siemens Mobility will additionally take over maintenance of the trains over their entire service life. By being equipped with the latest European Train Control System, the Mireo Plus B trains are equipped for ETCS Level 2 operation.
This new standard offers more track capacity, greater punctuality as well as interoperability in cross-border rail traffic. The reorder option became possible as part of a past order for 20 Mireo Plus B for the Ortenau network in 2020.
