The structure and design of this double railcar was developed in close cooperation with the constructors: Interior, driver’s cab, carriage profile, and exterior. Principal claims were: reduction of weight compared to present cars, more seats, convenient access, hygienic and friendly atmosphere, easier cleaning and maintenance, cheaper storage and easy changing of spare parts.
The exterior was due to the conditions of the smallest tunnel profile, the platform edge, the demand of a united overall impression of connected cars on one hand and the desire for a most comfortable interior for passengers and drivers on the other hand.
