Velaro E

Made for the heat

Velaro E is specially equipped for service in the heat of Spain: Its approximately 25% more powerful, redundant air-conditioning system with separate, dedicated air-conditioning unit for the driver's cab is designed for out-side temperatures as high as 50 °C

Traveling with class

Club, Preferente, and Turista – these three classes and four service areas offer a lot of room to move around for 405 passengers.

The Club class is fitted out with leather and premium class comfort, and the Preferente class has a high-quality interior and individual service at business class level. The cafeteria car marks the transition to the Turista class with customer service center and rooms for train crews and unattended baggage. Turista class passengers can enjoy an unobstructed view of the track ahead in a front lounge.

Relaxing in comfort

Like to sit facing the direction of travel? Thanks to rotatable seats, Velaro E provides this type of seating in all three classes. And when you’ve seen enough of the passing panorama you can relax and watch the big video screen.

State-of-the-art passenger information

Passenger information is provided via multilingual LED screens inside and outside. More Siemens systems look after your safety during the journey: the state-of-the-art European signal system ETCS Level 2 and the reliable continuous ATC system (LZB).
