The Tokyo Metro 16000 series (東京地下鉄16000系?, Tōkyō Chikatetsu 16000-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line in Tokyo, Japan, since November 2010. As of 1 April 2015, sixteen 10-car sets are in operation, with further sets on order.

Operations[edit]

The 16000 series sets are used on the following lines.

Design[edit]

The 16000 series uses Toshiba PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motors), offering 10% energy savings compared to the motors used in earlier 10000 series trains.[2][3]

The first 12 sets were manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Hyogo Prefecture, but sets 16113 to 16116 were built by Hitachi in Yamaguchi Prefecture.[4][5]

Sets from 16106 onward feature a modified front end design with the emergency door offset to the left-hand side away from the driver's position.[6]

Formation[edit]

As of 1 April 2015, the fleet consists of 16 10-car sets, formed as shown below, with car 1 at the Yoyogi-Uehara (south) end.[5]

Interior[edit]

History[edit]

The first 16000 series set was delivered in early August 2010.[7] The type entered service on 4 November 2010.[5]

In May 2011, the 16000 series was awarded the 2011 Laurel Prize, presented annually by the Japan Railfan Club.[8]

In April 2012, car 8 (16807) of set 16107 was experimentally fitted with LED interior lighting replacing the normal fluorescent tubes used.[9]

Future plans[edit]

A further 20 10-car sets are on order, with eight sets to be delivered during fiscal 2015.[10][needs update]
