A total of nine 8-car sets were manufactured between 1995 and 2001 in three batches. The design was based on the earlier 1000 series sets, with some of the passenger doors increased in width from 1,300 to 1,600 mm (4 ft 3 in to 5 ft 3 in) to help reduce station dwell times.
As of 1 April 2012, nine 8-car sets are in service, formed as follows with four motored (M) cars and four unpowered trailer (T) cars. Car 8 is at the Shinjuku end.
- Cars 2, 3, and 6, are each equipped with one single-arm pantograph.
