SNCF has selected CAF as the manufacturer of its new Intercités train fleet. The project covers the supply of 28 regional trains to operate on the Paris – Clermont-Ferrand and Paris – Limoges – Toulouse lines and it includes options for up to 75 additional trains.
Designed to reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h, the new units will offer a high level of comfort and equipment thanks to their ergonomic seats, autonomous access for people with reduced mobility and WIFI, plugs and USB ports inside the train.
This new project will also involve a strong investment by CAF in its Bagnères-de-Bigorre factory in southern France, as well as a significant growth in its number of employees in France. The units are expected to enter commercial operation as of 2023.
