With the new generation of vehicles, Deutsche Bahn will actively compete for tenders in the local rail transport market in 2009.

Since the Rail Reform in 1994, the year of the German railway reform in which Deutsche Bahn AG was founded, DB has purchased more than 1,600 double-deck coaches. DB Regio currently has more than 2,000 double-deck coaches in its fleet.

Standard equipment in the coaches includes power outlets at the seats, first- and second-class seating areas, ergonomic seats and customer information systems.
