The Kintetsu 22600 series "Ace" (近鉄22600系「Ace」?) is a limited express electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by Kintetsu since 1 April 2009.

Initially, 10 vehicles were introduced, at a cost of approximately 1.9 billion yen, formed as two 4-car sets and one 2-car set. A further 22 vehicles were delivered during fiscal 2009, with subsequent deliveries also planned to replace ageing limited express rolling stock.

Based on the earlier 22000 series design, each set features AC power outlets for passenger use, and a smoking compartment at one end of each set. Compared with the earlier 22000 series, seat pitch has been increased by 50 mm (2.0 in) to 1,050 mm (41 in).
