The Class 422 is a series of four-car electric multiple units that are a derivative of the DBAG Class 423.

History[edit]

The units were commissioned by Deutsche Bahn in 2005. 78 units worth 343 million will be built by Bombardier Transportation and Alstom and be delivered between March 2008 and October 2010.

Deutsche Bahn intends to use the units on the Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn network, especially within the VRR area.
