Alstom has presented the first finished Léman Express regional train for the trans-border CEVA line.
In total, 17 Régiolis trains belonging to Alstom’s Coradia Polyvalent range have been ordered by SNCF, fully financed by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
After nearly 24 months of tests in the Czech Republic, France and Switzerland, the first deliveries will begin in the summer of 2019, with entry into commercial service scheduled for mid-December 2019.
The Coradia Polyvalent Léman Express trains belong to Alstom’s Coradia range of trains, 312 of which have been sold to nine French regions. The fleet has already travelled more than 50 million kilometres in commercial service.
The trains have been adapted to the requirements of the Franco-Swiss trans-border CEVA line. Each 72m-long train can transport up to 204 seated passengers at speeds of up to 140km/h, in accordance with Swiss certification.
