Electric Multiple Units Series 471 CityElefant
The CityElefant double-deck electric units are designed for suburban transport.
With a gauge of 1435 mm, they are designed to be used on a 3 kV DC electrical system. The cars are equipped with wide doors and a lifting boarding platform for wheelchair access to the bottom deck. The open space by the entrance door offers plenty of storage room for luggage, bicycles and pushchairs.
The interior of the car is fully air-conditioned, airy and easily accessible. A varied arrangement of seats provides comfort and convenience with plenty of room for people with reduced mobility.
At the customer‘s request, the CityElefant three-car units provide 310 seats with a total capacity of 640 passengers.
Four asynchronous traction motors with an output of 500 kW, combined with an electrodynamic brake that allows energy recovery, reduce the energy consumption during operation significantly.
