Alstom unveils new main-line train

Posted on June 11, 2014

Alstom introduced the Coradia Liner V200, its latest, innovative main-line train, at the European Mobility Exhibition for Public Transport at the Parc des Expositions in Paris.

Designed to renew the pleasure of travelling on major European lines as well as to replace the Intercity rolling stock currently being used on French "Main lines", the Coradia Liner is a concentration of the technology created during of over 30 years’ experience in high-speed rail.

Electric or dual-mode (electric and thermal), equipped with ERTMS technology and consistent with European standards, the Coradia Liner can run on all conventional rail networks, reaching speeds up to 125 miles per hour, while accommodating up to 900 passengers.

Particularly suitable for longer trips, the vehicle offers unprecedented comfort with its reclining seats equipped with electrical sockets and reading lights, and its service areas — children’s play area, restaurant/bar & hospitality areas. Particular attention has been paid to acoustic comfort. To improve the fluidity of movement on-board, the hospitality and travel areas are spacious, with wide corridors.

Also designed for operators, the Coradia Liner has a distributed traction system, over the entire train, providing outstanding acceleration and braking, allowing greater coverage of the national territory without increasing travel time. Being lighter, its consumption is 30% less than that of the current Corail and has become the national and European eco-mobility train.

Six of the eleven Alstom sites in France have participated in the Coradia Liner project, with more than 4,000 jobs created both within Alstom and across the French rail sector.
