Push-pull double-deck units

Push-pull units are non-traction vehicles that are towed or pushed by a locomotive. For example, the latest Škoda Transportation electric locomotive, the Emil Zátopek series, can tow up to seven cars.

Push-pull units are designed for both 1,435 mm and 1,520 mm gauges.

The different entry height allow to operate with platforms from 200 mm to 960 mm height above rail surface. The units are, of course, wheelchair accessible; the car can provide retractable footrests for different platform heights.

The first generation of this unit is designed for a maximum speed of 160 km/h and is intended for suburban and regional transport. The second generation of push-pull units is designed for intercity and long-distance transport and has a maximum speed of 200 km/h.
