MAV-Start agreed the deal with Stadler on September 3, but the final option will only take effect once funding from both the European Union and the Hungarian national budget is in place. The value of the final option is Forints 100.75bn ($US 337.7m).
The first 11 Kiss EMUs ordered from Stadler in 2017 were delivered in July 2019 and are currently undergoing type approval including testing at the Velím test centre in the Czech Republic.
The 11 trains will enter service in early 2020 with a further eight trains following by the beginning of 2021. The final 21 Kiss EMUs will enter service from spring 2021 onwards with Stadler scheduled to deliver the trains at the rate of one per month. The new trains will be used on suburban services linking Budapest with Szolnok, Székesfehérvár and Győr.
