New metros for Munich: SWM and MVG to get additional latest-generation trains

V.l.n.r.:  Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility; Ingo Wortmann, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung der Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG); Regierungspräsident Dr. Konrad Schober

Together with the delivery of the first train from the 2nd option, Stadtwerke München commissioned Siemens Mobility to deliver an additional 18 six-car type C2 metro trains. Siemens was able to prevail against several competitors in a Europe-wide tender. As a result, a total of 85 C2 trains will be operating in Munich’s metro system in the future. 
Ingo Wortmann, Chairman of the Management Board of the Munich Transport Company (MVG): “I’m especially pleased that we are taking a further important step today in modernizing Munich’s metro fleet with the first delivery from the third delivery series. We’ve been operating this train type since 2016, so our order of additional trains from this series is relying on a proven concept to replace the aging A-trains step by step.”
Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility: “We’re delighted that Stadtwerke München has commissioned us to deliver an additional 18 six-car metro trains. This order will increase Munich’s C2 fleet to a total of 85 trains that combine reliability with innovation. The C2 trains improve public transport in our hometown of Munich by providing greater passenger comfort, higher capacity, and sustainability.” 
District President Dr. Konrad Schober: "The expansion of local transport in the Greater Munich area is of central importance, because public transport has a key role to play in coping with the increasing volume of traffic. As the technical supervisory authority for the underground and trams, the Government of Upper Bavaria is a reliable partner in the approval of new rail vehicles. I am pleased that today we can transfer the first train of the C2.13 series to the depot to begin approval process. The commissioning of the C2 vehicle series can then continue on a continuous basis.”
The metro trains are particularly ecofriendly and energy-saving. In selecting the materials, priority was given to environmentally friendly components that are up to 97% recyclable. And like all modern metro trains, the trains feed energy back into the power grid when they brake, further improving the CO2 balance in Munich and making public transport even more sustainable. The vehicles will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Vienna and delivered in 2024/2025.  The bogies will be supplied by the company’s factory in Graz.
