HŽ series 6112 is a class of low-floor electrical multiple unit on order for Croatian Railways (Croatian: hrvatske željeznice, HŽ) and Railways of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Croatian Railways issued international tender for supply of Electric and Diesel Passenger Trains to replace old and obsolete stock. Končar Group won the tender to supply initially 18 EMU train sets for local Zagreb Commuter Rail network, with order of up to 92 trains for the entire Croatian Railway Network to be delivered by 2016. Bosnian Railways also ordered initially one intercity train, with no indication if Bosnian railways might order additional units.

The prototype made its first test run at the Zagreb – Dugo Selo line on July 3, 2011.[2]
