Preferred variants for fast availability

As Europe converges, market requirements are changing. To allow you to react quickly to developments in the marketplace, we have defined a number of Vectron preferred variants. Homologation of these variants is carried out independently of particular projects.

Overview of available preferred variants*

The variants currently available have already been built as stock locomotives and were on display at the Innotrans 2010 in Berlin. Homologation for each type is currently in process. Stock locomotives are vehicles produced in the preferred variants without a specific customer order, and as such are available in an extremely short delivery time. Talk to your sales partner about the current status of preferred variants and the availability of stock locomotives.
