Details[edit]

The train is built with 2 coaches. The train has a low floor, so that there is no or little step between the platform height and the trains. The height is 810 mm. The prototype unit left the factory in September 2006 and was displayed at InnoTrans 2006. The only user of these units is Connexxion on the Valleilijn between Amersfoort and Ede-Wageningen in the Netherlands.
