A six-coach double-deck trainset will carry passengers on regional tracks in Germany.

Škoda Transportation will supply the Deutsche Bahn Regio with six-coach double-deck trainsets of the push-pull type. The vehicles will be operated in Bavaria on the track between Nuremberg - Ingolstadt – Munich. Each formation is operated as push-pull, that is, the coaches are either pulled by the locomotive or pushed by it - the driver is in the cab of the driving trailer or the locomotive. The trainsets are composed of one driving trailer, five intermediate coaches and the locomotive of the series Emil Zátopek in a new design prepared specially for Deutsche Bahn.

The maximum speed of the trains will reach 189 km/h. The trainsets are equipped with pressure-tight bodies which stabilize the pressure inside the coaches when passing high-speed vehicles (speed of up to 300 km/h). In total the trainsets will have 676 seating places. All seats on the trains are comfortable. In addition, every place has at its disposal an outlet and an optional Wi-Fi connection, both in the first and the second class. The equipment includes also air conditioning which provides pleasant temperature even on hot summer days. Every train is equipped with an outside and inside CCTV system in order to provide security.
