The high-speed trains

Our heroes in detail

Each of our high-speed heroes has a special talent that they bring to respective customers and applications. Get to know our high-speed trains here.

The innovator

The 21st century is bringing on rapid change – and new approaches to advance mobility are needed. This is a job for our Velaro Novo. With the help of numerous innovations, it ushers in a new era of high-speed transport. Fast, smart and full of ideas: it offers the right solution for any situation, no matter how challenging it is. Its mission: to help operators worldwide master the future of high-speed transport. 

The sustainable one

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time – and a modal shift from road to rail is one way to fight it. But how can this be achieved quickly? The Velaro MS is built precisely for this challenge. Breathtakingly fast as well as heroically efficient and environmentally compatible: it is a key pillar of sustainable high-speed transport. Its mission: to hasten this modal shift and strengthen rail transport within Germany.

The passengers’ favorite

The demands placed on modern high-speed transport are constantly growing. Passengers want more comfort and more entertainment. This is a task for Velaro Turkey. It transforms every journey into an extraordinary experience thanks to modern communication systems and numerous customer-specific solutions. One such solution is the spacious onboard bistro area designed according to Turkish standards. Its mission: to provide passengers with a modern, individualized travel experience at the highest level.

The adaptable one

What to do when different routes also involve different passenger volumes and requirements: Develop a separate train for each route? Or is there one that adapts perfectly to different demands? There is: the ICE 4. Whether it's a 7-, 12- or 14-car train - as The Amazing Transformer, he faces the different challenges. And this shape-shifter never loses sight of its real mission: to get passengers to their destination in comfort.

The connecting one

Conquering the sea with a train – some things seem impossible. But they only seem impossible until someone arrives who masters them. There is someone who creates extraordinary connections even 40 meters below the seabed: the Eurostar e320. As our Connexion Challenger, he not only connects Great Britain with mainland Europe, but also comfort with modernity and passengers with travel experiences in a class of their own.

The punctual one

In a world that is becoming increasingly agile and interconnected, time is an important resource. And a decisive competitive factor for train operators. Fortunately, there is one that is consistently taking up the fight against time-wasters: Velaro E, aka The Spanish Speedster. With its availability of nearly 100%, it is not even impressed by the Spanish heat. It also saves 29,000 tons of CO2 per year and is a convenient alternative to air travel between Barcelona and Madrid for travelers.
