Alstom reached a new milestone with the signature of the first end of general warranty of France’s Regiolis (Coradia Polyvalent) trainset, two years after the first deliveries. In addition to this important step in the project, which confirms the reliability and the availability of the trains, Regiolis is celebrating over 10 million kilometres (approximatley six million miles) covered in commercial service.

This first end of warranty concerns a Regiolis Picardy dual-mode trainset consisting of six cars. To date, 137 Regiolis have been delivered to eight French regions. Alstom’s aftersales teams have been assigned to the customers’ sites to ensure corrective maintenance, as well as the availability and reliability of the trains.

Coradia Polyvalent belongs to Alstom’s Coradia range of trains. Thanks to its modular design, it can be adapted to the needs of every organizing authority as well as different types of use: suburban, regional and intercity. It offers optimal comfort for passengers, whatever the length of the journey.

The production of Coradia Polyvalent creates over 4,000 jobs in France with Alstom and its suppliers. Six of Alstom’s twelve sites in France are involved in the project: Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction, Villeurbanne for the onboard electronics and Saint-Ouen for the design.
