- 27 battery-powered trains for Landesanstalt
Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW)
- Innovative and energy-efficient battery-powered hybrid platform that
can be operated with or without overhead lines
- Siemens Mobility delivers
further 38 Mireo Plus B trains to Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) and Midtjyske
Jernbaner in Denmark
Mobility presents the Mireo Plus B battery train to the public for the first
time at InnoTrans 2022. The Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge
Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) has ordered 27 Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens
Mobility in 2020. The two-car electric trainsets with

Successful demonstration of a fully automated tram
depot with a self-driving tram
Market maturity planned for 2026
Supported by the mFUND of the Federal Ministry of
Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI)
Mobility and ViP Verkehrsbetrieb Potsdam GmbH successfully demonstrated a test
of the mFUND’s AStriD (“Autonomous Tram in Depot”) research project at a press
conference today. A consortium consisting of Siemens Mobility, ViP Verkehrsbetrieb
Potsdam GmbH, the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT), the Institute for Climate
Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM), and Codewerk GmbH began its joint
research on a fully automated tram depot in October 2019. The technology is
expected to be market-ready in 2026.
- Siemens Mobility and VTG Rail Europe collaborate to innovate rail freight transport
- Contract covers a one-year trial to prove the system’s operational capability
- Brake Monitoring System has European-wide market potential due to time and cost savings for rail-bound freight transport
Siemens Mobility GmbH and VTG Rail Europe GmbH signed a contract to test the innovative Brake Monitoring System (BMS) for automated brake testing of freight trains to prove the system’s operational capability. The BMS ensures an automatic brake test on each wagon of a train. The expected efficiencies generated for freight operators will result in a great market potential across Europe.
