Resistant to both fire and water: The Eurostar e320 is especially tailored to meet the strict standards and design requirements
for tunnel operations. In the event of a fire, the train can still be operated for an additional 30 minutes. Given the tunnel’s ambient conditions of up to 100 % humidity and 25 °C temperature throughout the year, all components are reliably protected against condensation.
Traveling on the Eurostar e320 is an extraordinarily luxurious experience. Trains accommodate up to 894 passengers, with 222 seats in first class and 672 seats in second class. In early 2015, Eurostar ordered an additional seven multi-unit train sets of 400 m based on an existing option.
