Mireo – a train that intelligently combines it all

The Mireo commuter train travels through a landscape as a regional train in local traffic and offers train operators greater competitiveness.

As a train operator, you have to fulfill many demands. Mireo® is a commuter and regional train that intelligently meets all your requirements with a combination of energy-efficiency, flexibility, a fast response time, and profitability.

Intelligence on rails

Lower weight, more freedom of movement, shorter construction times, and optimized components: A lot of innovative ideas were developed by Siemens engineers to make the new Mireo a premium-class regional train. But it´s more than just the features that make this train remarkable: It intelligently combines these features to provide operators with maximum added value.

Competitiveness combined with responsibility toward nature

Reduce energy costs and position yourself as a provider of sustainable mobility – naturally while also complying with all regulations. Our engineers designed the new Mireo to be energy-efficient all along the line, from production to low-emission operation. During the planning phase, for example, they checked every component in order to save as much energy as possible with intelligent modifications – up to 25 percent less compared to trains with similar capacities.

This not only boosts your competitiveness but also makes your passengers feel good about their decisions that impact nature, thanks to reduced emissions, noise, and less use of resources. Plus, Mireo is also available with a battery or hydrogen drive and has a recycling rate of over 95 percent.

An empty tube with an abundance of possibilities

Utilize every centimeter for the benefit of your passengers and adapt to changing demands. With Mireo, Siemens is embracing uncompromising flexibility. Siemens engineers have installed components only in the underfloor and on the roof to the greatest possible extent.

This means that the space is fully available to passengers and can also be used for bicycles, strollers and wheelchairs if required. The interior can be converted again and again – without great effort. This is a smart move because this “empty tube principle” not only reduces your conversion and cleaning costs but also leaves you, the operator, with an abundance of utilization and configuration options – so you can respond flexibly to a dynamic market.

Standardized components combined with multi-variant configurations

Now you can get on the rails faster and meet demands as they arise. Our engineers designed Mireo as an intelligent, modular system. They also reduced the number of components and simplified the cabling – and this enables an increased delivery speed. Because Mireo is designed for efficient and cost-effective implementation. In addition, our engineers have reduced the number of components and simplified the cabling. Thanks to the variable configuration, you can still design Mireo individually – depending on your needs and requirements. The traction concept makes it expandable at any time.

For you as the operator, this means shorter time-to-market and reduced procurement costs combined with optimal use of variant configurations – for a faster response time both now and in the future.

Maximum safety combined with optimized lifecycle costs

Vehicles, service, and financing from a single source: Mireo sets standards in vehicle diagnostics and maintenance friendliness. The robust, low-maintenance components reduce maintenance costs.

The "Always Connected" system not only provides comprehensive information on board, but also provides maintenance-relevant information that predictively announces component wear.

Thanks to the intelligent recording of maintenance-related data, lifecycle and maintenance costs are reduced while safety and availability increase.
